The farrier and his assistant came yesterday to do EVERY horse up at the ranch! That's a full day's work! Phew~! Those two guys are wonderful, however. I remember the first time I had somebody up there come and do Sunni's feet. The guy was very rough with Sunni and Sunni would NOT stand still. The more the idiot shouted, the more Sunni got wound up, so he shouted more, and Sunni freaked out more. I finally said, "ENOUGH!" and never had him come back. I like this farrier now. He is very quiet, moves very slowly, and Sunni now trusts him and doesn't move a muscle! :-) The guy sort of sings to the horses and they just relax. What a difference! We've had him now for several years and I'm so thankful for his work!
It was a cool day up at the ranch and last week they had two FULL days of rain, so everything was very muddy. Ugh. No fun. I'm going back Wednesday and hopefully by then the arena will be dry enough that I can let them out for some R&R.
