Rub-a-Dub, Bub

Boys will be boys.
Poco has matching wounds on each eye
from playing with the kid.

They play rough.
Usually Jaz gets the worst of it.
That's a good size hunk o' bark!

The only time you'll ever
see that mane laying down —
when it's wet.

You can see below it's
sticking up as usual
after he shook.

The Patience Post

Poco was tied for easily 5 hours,
maybe longer.
I worked on him first
because I knew he'd stand there
while I worked on Scorch.

I didn't tie Scorch until
I was totally done with Poco.
After all, he is only a two-year-old.
He didn't like the patience lessons much,
but I only had to get physical once.

Clean and pretty

Sissy braid

It's one thing to have a
mane and tail like his
when he's stalled or kept in a paddock,
as he is at home.

It's another thing altogether
when there are trees
to rub it on
and get tangled in.
I had to tell Heather I
can't be responsible for
the state of his mane and tail
when I take him back.

Look at that beautiful tail.

Both boys were bathed,
sheaths cleaned,
feet picked,
manes and tails oiled,
faces, ears, & bridle paths clipped.

Going to see Jaz tomorrow.
He's been 'iffy'
off and on all week.
Temp's supposed to dip tonight.
Heather has him in a stall
and is watching him.

I'm whupped & dirty,
waiting for Mr. Fry to wake up
so I can shower.

Think I'll have a beer while I wait.
Cheers, y'all.

Glad Poco is enjoying his company. Sorry to read that Jaz is still not up to par, hope he get completely well soon.

Sure hope Jazz settles down out there Leah. Silly pony stressing... and stressing out his MOM! ;)

The two men at home look SMASHING though!

Laura said...

I hope Jazz improves for you - that must be stressful!

Love the mane and tail on that guy! I sometimes dream of having a horse with a mane and tail that I could actually brush. lol (I sound like a 12 yr old girl! :-)

This reminds me that I need to bathe Jesse and Little Lady on Monday and will be as pooped and wooped as you after! They do stand well in the bath rack till they dry...maybe it's cuz they get their extra treats after a bath! LOL

Pony Girl said...

Wow, that is some mane and tail! I wish my horse had more, but then again, it'd be more to maintain, I suppose! ;)
My Boy didn't get a bath this past summer! I intended to before our trip and it didn't happen. Ah well, he's a pasture pony.
I hope Jaz is on the mend, keep us posted!

Wow. You've been busy with all those pretty boy spa treatments.

I'm worried about Jazz. I'm sure he'll be fine, but I'll say a little prayer anyway. I'm sure you're very worried about your sweet boy.

Hey Leah- Saw your comment at NuzMuz about Jaz still not doing well- wanted to pop in and say we'll be praying for him- and you- on our end. Please let us know when you can how that sweet man is doing, and know you guys will be in a lot of thoughts and prayers.

They sure are gorgeous!! You did a great job getting them all spiffed up!!

Poor Poco, he's so pitiful with his wounded eyes! And Scorch is so handsome, even with his sissy braid. Why can't I get a forelock like that on any of my horses?
