TOABH: Fave

Beka you are a blog saver.

Fave.
What is your horse’s absolute favorite thing?  Outside of riding!  Are there treats that instantly convert your pony into an addict or liniments that leave him yawning and chewing?  What does your horse just love to have?
I’m going to exclude food.  Because I’ll be honest, it’s probably top dog in her mind, but I feel like writing about some of her other faves.
The Farrier. It may seem odd, but I truly believe this mare loves to get her feet done.  She’s a sucker for any type of attention, but something about getting her feet done makes her really happy.  Maybe it’s because her feet were so screwy when I bought her?  Who knows.  She will sigh over and over, chomp, lick her lips, yawn and even doze off while he does his thing and makes her feet beautiful.
She even tries to help shoe.

She even tries to help shoe.

We have to hold her so she doesn't doze off on the farrier.

Getting her nails did.

Dozing and getting her nails did.

  1. aw that’s adorable!! i think my mare secretly loves our farrier too – but she shows it by being a total nuisance.. (she has previously managed to put her hind foot on top of his foot while he held her front hoof… just… how? ugh)

  2. No one else notices that he’s wearing the same shirt in every shot, but you’re in different places…?

    I wish Archie liked the farrier, but he doesn’t.
