Wash Day

The horses coming in.
Buddy's turn today.

Behind the barn.  Who is Mom riding? "Sorry guys, today is washday."

 I thought I might just include a picture of the Grandkid's horse's foot (that's him with the blaze face, a super old horse but a little rough to ride). 
He had a horrible split up the front of his hoof that was causing him grief but we have a really good farrier (the horse had another hoof injury, some time ago, that he and the young lady vet we use cured him of when the other vet in town wanted to do some horrible and expensive procedure) He very carefully nailed a shoe nail in side ways to hold this split together. It was very tricky to do with out pricking the horse but worked like a charm.

Well, back to the wash. It's nice to be able to hang it out today.

Very slick way to fix that hoof . A good farrier is worth a lot ,they are getting harder to find. Especially the really good ones as they get so busy!Fresh linens dried on the line ,mmm Nothing like it!
