Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! You didn't expect me to post today, did you? Well, I have something to be thankful for, so here I am. Other than the fact that #1 is back so I am once again getting my apples and carrots, the farrier came yesterday and I got a pedi and new shoes! Now, there are several different ways to shoe a horse and our farrier goes in for hot-shoeing. Look:
Yes! That's my shoe you see there in the background, glowing red!
And here it is being fitted:
Then I got my treat bucket, of course!
Vidock: I also got my feet done yesterday. In my case, I get shoes on all four feet (Violette only gets them on her front feet as she doesn't do heavy work for now and she shares a field with a bunch of other horses who are not shod).
And how about a nice portrait of my studly self?
In case you're wondering, the pink spot on my nose got covered in kisses whilst I was being shod. That #1!!!!!! Oh, and I got my share of treats too!
