|for lack of pony pictures, here's a large chicken egg v. a goose egg.|
If nothing else, this relaxed work schedule is making us friends. He seems to genuinely be enjoying himself and I like not having to fight with his punk ass. Plus, and only you fellow crazy horse people will nod your heads in agreement, Bobby has gained a little bit of confidence in himself since the show like he knows he rocked it and we hold him in higher esteem. He just seems happier to be worked because he thinks he's an important Grown Up Horsie now.

Clearly his toes are overdue! He was actually due to get done the Tuesday (our farrier comes out every Tuesday) before the show, but I didn't want new shoes slapped on the week of a show so the farrier just tightened the nails. The next day, he half pulled a shoe off and the farrier was out to tack it back on. He was then supposed to get done this Tuesday, but I forgot to put his name on the board and the farrier will only do horses if he has the owner's permission. So I made sure to write his name up there this afternoon to get done this upcoming week.
He's also getting his massage tomorrow at 10am. I'm curious to see if Massage Lady finds any problem spots outside of what I already know--his pelvis not getting adjusted right from Chiro Lady, his sore back from being a tense mess, and his old neck injury. Ohh, High Maintanence Pony. Why can't you be more like Red?
