The Spaces in Between

It’s been a busy and hot last week or two and I’ve gotten next to nothing done with my herd beyond basic body and hoof care. Because that’s life. It’s not all exciting stories and leaps and bounds in progress, sometimes it’s just daily duties and how we fill the spaces in between.

I did manage a couple of +/- 20 minutes hands-on sessions with Apache during last week and managed to  get him back over to my buddy, W’s, last Friday, where he was introduced to another young horse guru whom he liked quite a lot. The wind was screaming that day and while Apache played uncertain with W, there was no firm frowny mouth or shuffle steps for S.  Happily, flanks/belly handling seemed barely an issue that day so seriously kind and loving *consistency* is the road for this fella still.

yeah buddy, no big deal


Last week I finally got my lower leg tattoo worked on again, over a year later. Only a few hours left to finish up now!

Other than that it’s been boot fittings, hoof trims, 100+ degree weather, endless wildfires, and admiration of growing creatures, pup and filly.
