I haven't posted a lot of updates lately … I will try to be better.
Sunday we had beautiful weather for the Christmas party here at the ranch and it went well.
Monday and Tuesday were pretty cold - today was also blustery - windy with lots of blowing snow but the horses were fine. Stayed in cover some of the day and at other points they decided to wander around in the blizzard like conditions.
We have two slow feeders built and hope to add around four more. This allow them to graze 24/7. A couple reasons we want this is because horses have high acid levels in their stomach and were created by God, designed by Him to really eat throughout the day. This should help prevent ulcers and keep digestive tract happier. The other thing is it will help keep sharp points from developing on their teeth as they will be grazing/ chewing more.
We haven't been able to bring in more wood but Duane has been chopping what we have gathered. We will need to go out again eventually.
Pallet wall is coming along.
After Christmas, I am going to try to start messing with Patriot, Atlas, Dusty and Stardust regularly - I yes I will be limited with what I can do but I can always desensitize and sensitize, flexing, pick up feet, yield hindquarters and forequarters, drop poll, etc.
Leaving a beautiful photo of Kaia for you all to enjoy.
