End of a Great Long Weekend

The evening of an absolutely perfect day is coming to a close. The sun is shining through my dirty windows, warming me, my 2 snoozing cats and our little ratweasel dog. To my surprise, I just realized my face is sunburned. I didn't wash my face this morning, so I was still wearing night cream — no sunscreen. Oops.

First things first. Here's Hex, Rico, and Nita, on crutches from an incident that involved poison sumac, a ladder, and a swimming pool.

I went nuts with the clippers. I clipped Jaz's sweet little face.

I got really carried away on Poco. The more I clipped him, the more gorgeous silver roaning I saw, so I just kept going. He was such a good boy. Mind you, it looks like someone let Jaz loose with the clippers. Remember what it looked like the first time you body clipped a horse? Or your kid tried to clip the dog? I had intended to go back today and clean up some of the clipper lines, but one thing led to another and I let the Boyz out for some grazing and much needed bucking and farting. Look at the beautiful color under all that brown. He looks like melted cookies n' cream ice cream.

I shot this little video you might find amusing. That's Heather's leopard filly Dream, flirting like mad with Jaz and Poco. Who you callin' a gelding?

Back to work tomorrow, refreshed and rejuvenated.

I'm so glad you've had a long and refreshingly peaceful weekend. Good for you! Your pictures are so cute... and that foal is just adorable!! And, little Jazz has a beautiful face and head - gotta love those Arab faces!
And, I agree with you about Poco - his coloring is beautiful. Almost a lovely grulla type coloring. Very pretty or, I mean handsome!
