It's Cold!

 My sweet guys coming to see me.

It went from mid seventies to mid twenties in ONE DAY!!!!!  It is soooo cold!  I know it's a lot colder in other areas, but that big of a difference in one day is so extreme.  Thank goodness it isn't raining anymore though.  I was so undecided about whether I wanted to put Chrome's blanket on, but since the rain stopped before it got below forty I decided not to.  He hasn't shivered at all so I feel good with my decision.

He's all flab again from the lack of exercise, but he looks pretty good.  :)  Check out those dapples!!  I bet he would look sharp if he was clean hehe.

Zep and the boy goats all seem comfortable too.  This picture really shows how huge Rebel's horn spread is.  Wow!!  Yankee is doing well too, but I forgot to get a picture of him.

 Rocky giving me his "look".

 Jasper is a fuzz ball!

Chrome says, "Hey mom, guess what would help keep me warm..."

 "More candy canes!  Pleeeeaaase!!!"

He LOVES the candy canes I've been getting at work lol.

I want to say again I'm sorry I haven't been posting.  Also thank you for the readers who have stuck around and who check in on me.  You guys are so awesome and I miss you all.  I hope you have a very merry Christmas and I'll try to post more even if it is just more random cell phone pictures like these.  :D

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!

 Love this picture!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I'm so thankful for having the day off to spend with my family and also because it gave me time to play with the animals and actually get the camera out so you can see this guy's handsome face.  I know you've missed seeing it hehe.

I wish he hadn't been standing on a slope here lol.

Ignore the smoke coming out of his back.  We finally got rain after being under a burn ban for three months so we were burning brush piles.

Hubby got Rocky out too and we spent a long time brushing them.  I even combed out both of their tails, which I don't normally have time to do.  Rocky had some snarls in his so I'm glad I did it before they got worse.

I wish I had time to wash Chrome's tail weekly.  It's so gross looking.
It is finally growing again though, yay!!  
Putting Jasper out in the big pasture has distracted Rebel
and Yankee from rubbing their horns in Chrome's tail.  :)

Looks so much better!  His is so much thicker than
Chrome's and takes a lot longer to comb out.

I don't have a whole lot to talk about.  I haven't been riding Rocky because it makes me sad I can't ride Chrome.  Rehabbing from a tendon injury is boring and gives nothing to blog about.  Sorry I've been so quiet.  I'm just so thankful he is healing up and everything is going well.  :)  Enjoy the pictures.

 So handsome!  I had to use the scissors to cut burs out of his ear hair lol.

 His mane is growing out.  I'm leaving it to grow out for the winter again.  
I'll roach him again next spring when he starts rubbing it out again. 

 Can't leave Rocky out.  He's doing great. 

 Going for our walk.  He loves his walks.  :)

 Harassing Rocky.  Chrome is such a dork.

 Now he's remembering how to pose lol. So handsome!

He has such a cute expression.

 I took this picture by accident and I liked it so I kept it.  :)

 Once back out in the pasture Chrome just wanted to go eat hay and wouldn't pose.

Rocky was standing guard over the goats eating their food and then when he realized Chrome was at the hay bale he trotted out there.  Silly boy.

That's all for now.  I hope you all are having a super awesome, happy, thankful Thanksgiving!!!

More Friesian Pictures

 Okay if you haven't seen yesterday's post, make sure to check it out.  Remember when my best friend and I did a photo shoot on her Friesian mare?

Here is the old post

We did another photo shoot last weekend when I got the pictures in yesterday's post.  You can see where he gets his good looks right??

 I wish she hadn't torn her mane out, but she's still just as gorgeous as her son.  My friend is so lucky to have these two Friesians.  :)

 I took pictures of my best friend too and I think they turned out so awesome.  Here is the one that was everyone's favorite even though it's blurry...

 Everyone liked it because she's sidesaddle in a normal western saddle (it's not a sidesaddle) in a dress, barefoot at a canter.... she makes me look like a kindergarten rider hehe. Let me know if you want to see her other pictures.  I don't think she'll mind me posting them, but I'll ask her to be sure.

Do you remember?

 First a quick update on Chrome.  He is doing well, not limping anymore.  My silence hasn't been because of him.  I've just been VERY busy with the newest member of the family.  You have to meet him!  I just did a post on my other blog here!

Now how many of you remember the Friesian colt that belongs to my best friend who stayed at my house for a while last year?  Here are a couple of pictures to jog your memory.

And my favorite below.

You can see the post here ( He was thin because he was going through a growth spurt.  It also turns out he had teeth problems, but she got him all fixed back up.  Now check out what he looks like a year later at three years old......


  I hadn't seen him in a long time and was blown away by how much he's grown and filled out.

For comparison...

Wow, what a difference a year makes!

 I also got to sit on him!!!!

I was only the second person to ever get on him and this was only his forth or fifth time with someone on his back.  She's only been on him a few times for a couple of minutes at a time.  She's going to let him grow until he's four before she really starts him under saddle.  I had so much fun last weekend playing with him and his dam (pictures of her tomorrow).
