Fall is Bot Time

Upon going to see Siaga yesterday, I found myself very proud of him. I took him out and lunged him for a while in the round pen, and when I started grooming him, for once, he just stood there and let me brush him, no tie on. Usually he moves around a lot when I'm trying to groom him and I keep having to put him back in the starting place. Sadly, while grooming him, I came across bot eggs on his legs and had to send Jonathon to hunt down a bot knife so I could scrape Siaga's legs clean.
After that, the sky clouded over and the wind was blowing hard and I knew Siaga wouldn't like to be in the indoor because he's terrified of the wind anyways and that place just amplifies the sounds.

But, he did get good exercise, I took him on a walk through the woods and on the round-a-bout trail.


  1. Glad it's not just my horses that hate the indoor!!!

  2. Yeah, if the wind's blowing, it's amplified and it just totally messes him up, and if it's not, he does nothing but whinny at all the other horses and then -that- gets amplified.

    By the way, I stopped and visited with Bonnie and Rosie on Sunday, and I have to say, I have never come across a horse with a mane softer than Bonnies. It was like silk!
