Louise light on her toes

Cathrine and Louise (Lois Lane) were going for a trip in the woods. I wanted to take a few pictures. That didn’t suit Louise very well – I could take all the photos I liked but demanding her to stand stil was a whole other matter.

As you can see, she dosen’t have time for that, and when we tried anyway, she might as well show us, that she has qualifications as a dressage horse too. We decided to drop it, and do it when they came back, but we never got round to it. We will another time – but as it is, we hardly have any photos of these two as it is 😉

Ferriers meeting in the yard

As mentioned before the track was frossen, so not really the thing for fragile horse legs. So for quite a while nobody knew how many horse we could get ridden if any. So when I arrived “the red one” was having a good time in the inclosure. As an elder experienced horse he can even though it is frozen, as he knows to watch himself. The other that wasn’t going to be ridden went on the walker. So much of my day was spent seeing to that after I took care of Finish as the first thing. He had his legs washed in soapy wather today and they ended up really nice.

In between the others came home and wanted a “Gold wash” as Cathrine calls it, and needed a leg up as well. Also Louise and Lights and “Mama” also had special treament yesterday. So I was tired when I finally headed home.

Later in the day the ferrieer came and provided anotheer kind of foot therapy. The one which is new shoes. We had a sort of a ferriers meeting in the yard. Both Peter from Ferrier Beslagsmed Karsten Bo Jensen and ditto Rasmus Olsen was there. All is explained by the other horses has the first mentioned for their feet and Finish has Rasmus. But they’re all good friends, and there’s plenty to do for all of them.

I was busy yesterday. Groomed and took care of 5 horses feet. In between there was visits to the track, helping people up etc. In between there was time for a cup of coffee, and a piece of fresh bred, Hanne and I bought after a trip to the tracks. All in all a very nice day as always. The not nice part was going to the track in the snow storm with Hong Kong and Lights and Stars. We didn’t stay very long for the same reason. I was on my bike, and that wasn’t much fun in a snow blizzard, so Cat kindly gave me a lift home… Back home, a hot bath and a bit to eat was lovely, and so was the thought of not going out, as the snow continued to poor down….
