Well Dear Humans I am in sunny, warm Florida. It was a long trip of course to get here. We left early and I knew exactly where we were going as I had heard the Humans talking about it. So once I heard the rumble of the big engine of the transport I knew we would soon be off. I have done this trip often so I know it is long but …what the heck …as you Humans say.. it’s well worth it. Here is a short video that Roo’s Human Meg Ann took of the transport as it drove away from the barn.
Well it was pretty warm once we got to the Florida barn. I had grown in a lot of winter coat and when Super Groom Lexi saw me she said she was going to give me a full clip As Soon As Possible.
Ma Leueen was there to meet me and she gave me a bath so I’d be clean for SG Lexi. Then she walked me outside and I could eat some grass and dry off from my bath in the sunshine! Bliss!
Before I knew it SG Lexi had me into the cross ties and was clipping me. The more hair she took off the better I felt. I just had a rest while she clipped. When she was finished she sprayed me with something called Vin Eager.I did NOT like the smell so I flipped up my upper lip. You can see this in the photo.And you can also see how much fur I have had removed.Whew!
I have not had to do any work yet. But Ma Leueen told me that soon Trainer Lynsey will be putting me to work.
Oh I should also tell you about my new fly sheet for turnout. It has black and white stripes. Ma Leueen says they are like the stripes on a Zeebra. That is an equid that lives in Africa. Ma Leueen said the stripes keep flies away. Yesterday I was bothered by flies but today with my Zeebra stripes it was not so bad. Ma Leueen has put in a photo of zeebra fur for you to see.
Well, that’s all for now Dear Human. I will be speaking again soon as Ma Leueen tells me there are plans for me to go to some shows with Trainer Lynsey. But she said that I have to do some work with Trainer Lynsey before that happens and that one day I will go with a couple of other horses to the showgrounds to be ridden there so we can all get used to it. So, till next time Dear Humans.
