I had a number of errands to run today so I didn't get out to the barn until around 1:30 PM on Monday. I went down and got Sarge. Biscuit tried to go with me but I left him in the pasture. He took off running and he was whinnying for Sarge!
I started grooming Sarge - he was muddy. He is rarely muddy so I know he has been rolling to get the hair off. I brushed and brushed and brushed. Hair was flying everywhere - so glad he finally started shedding. I used a scissor blade to pull the stringy pieces of his mane off. He looked so much better!!!
I put the surcingle on him and side reins and worked him in the arena for 30 minutes. He was a bit of a toot at the end - I think he was a little annoyed but too bad. He did a good job after I insisted on finishing RIGHT.
I could hear Biscuit whinnying the entire time I had Sarge up front. I hosed him off and scraped him and took him back. Biscuit was so glad to see him.
I went back a few hours later. No matter how bad I feel, my horses make me feel better. They are so precious to me. I straightened out my tack closet while I was there. I gave the horses carrots and clover.
Check out Biscuit's mustache...could he be any cuter?
