Violette: Pretty neighs everyone! Violette reporting. I thought you might like to hear about my progress at school. The whole thing has been happening a little in fits and starts because the weather was so bad until just recently, and there are several other horses being schooled at the moment, including two young stallions (read "ego trip" here...). And no, I am mot referring to Vidock who has something of a reputation as a sweetheart!
So here I am, waiting for my lesson to start:
Being put through my paces:
So, the big challenge for this lesson was to see if I could conquer my fear of the evil plastic tarpaulin. We horses are very iffy about stepping onto evil plastic tarpaulins (or is that "tarpaula"?). Anyway, here I am having good sniff:
And, as you can see from this little video, I conquered the tarp!
After that was over, I was taken to the "spa room" where Mr. E worked on picking up my feet. You see, I have never seen a farrier and so I need to learn to give my feet!
Sorry I am looking a bit "muddy." I did get a lovely shower afterwards!
I hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday!
