Hanging With All the Boys

Didn't work with Baby D today. Too lazy. I just hung out with the geldings, who were all being complete suck-ups. They shared an apple. Jaz and Poko begged for grape Gatorade, so I shared.
  Poko, Jaz, Boo (Jaz's brother), Daltrey.
I got to know Boo a little.
He was quite sweet, much like his brother.
I have never ridden him, and may ride him Sunday,
if Jaz is not rideable.

 Look how tall my baby is!
There's still nothing to eat.
They're pretending.

 Poor Jaz. Always a mess.
Healing sweet itch/rain rot.

 These two are sensitive to the touch,
or he may be being a drama queen.
He pissed somebody off.

 This doesn't look like anything, but see the darker area?
It's sweet itch/rain rot right before it gets ugly.
As soon as we treat it, it will be pink and hairless.

This one's for Lisa and Sylvia.
This is in Scorch, the Stonewall stallion's, pen.
She was just standing there, cooling her jets.
She might be the smartest critter at the farm.

I like the close ups of Jaz, especially the one with the wrinkly skin :)

Crystal, it's always something with him. I don't even flinch anymore when I hear about or see the latest.

Ooo-Swab some Crest toothpaste on Jazz's bite marks and just leave it on. That will help take the tenderness out of them quicker and help the hair grow back.

BECG, that's what we do with the start of sarcoids. Also works!

Thanks for the poultry pic. Looks like a lovely Rhode Island Red hen. Smart lady indeed. My hens love to soak their feet in a puddle of water any chance they get, and I am known to pour water on the ground for them in the summer :)
Daltrey is not only growing taller, but is beginning to fill out now, too.
Poor Jaz...his far-away photo made him look perfect....the close-ups, not so much.
I bet he's given you more than a few grey hairs.
