photo shoot

It is still too hot to do anything but mess around with Shyloh. She was sweating just standing in her stall today. She has a fan, but won't stand in front of it. She is not scared of it, so I have no idea why she won't take advantage of the breeze. It is just like her heated water bucket in the winter. . .she refused to drink out of it. Crazy horse.

I gave Shy a bath today. I have been putting her in the grooming stall and clipping the cross ties together so she can move around more. Well, after I hosed her down and had one side of her all lathered up with shampoo, Shy discovered that she could fit under the "barrier" and took off to her stall. It wasn't far, just across the aisle way, but she lost her grooming stall freedom privileges. I finished her bath,scraped all of the excess water off of her, and braided her mane. Then I took her outside to dry off in the sun and graze for a bit.

Then we went inside and had ourselves a little photo shoot!
So serious!
Kisses!
Making Shy being cuddly, not her normal M.O.
Now I am the short one!
And then this is what Shy thought of our little photo shoot. . .
Boring!
I have been itching to get back to riding Shy, but she has been off for so long, I think Beth should ride first. Just because Shy listens to Beth better and Beth is able to correct better than I can. Sunday the temps are supposed to drop, so hopefully then. . .

  2. I love your photos. It's funny, Pippin isn't a cuddly guy either. He likes his space. But Doc is the opposite. He'll stand with his face in my chest as long as I am touching him. He loves having me stand right in front and run my hands down both sides of his face. You can almost hear him purr!

    1. How cute! Shy is not one to stand too long to let me love on her, but she will tolerate it for a short while. I kinda wish she was more lovey. . .

  3. I'm not much for the cuddling thing either. Good think Mom has the dogs and Margeaux for that! Oh, and Dad too!

    1. My dogs are huge cuddlers! But when Shy does do something cuddley, it makes it all the more special.
