Well not only do the humans get beautified for the Christmas season, so do the girls in the barn.
Each of the girls had a great pedicure given by their favourite man. Don has to be one of the best in the business. It was amazing the difference in the condition of the feet. The Friesians with their black, black feet seem to stay in terrific condition. They are solid and might have gone a few more weeks. The big Belgian girls with their white feet….. Oh my! They probably could have been done a couple weeks ago. Now what was that old saying for the driving and old work horses?
One white foot buy it?
Two white feet try it…
Three white feet look well about him..
Four white feet leave him be..
It was interesting what the old timers would say.. But them again maybe they really did know.
- Ever once in a while a horse comes along that wraps its self with in your heart. Rein is one of those horses. She will never tower over all the other horses, or become the Alfa of the herd. Rein had a slow start in life a first foal for Durkheim, coming 2 & 1/2 weeks early. Her mom only produced half the milk she required to start her young life. She quickly got use to milk replacer as a supplement, organic probiotic yogurt, (my horses will get what ever they need to help them survive), along with supplements recommended by the fenway foundation. At 4 years old she is a beauty. Like I said she will never be a 17 hand horse, but she surpassed 17 hands in my heart along time ago. There is truth in the old saying, Good Things Come In Small Packages!
