The New Love Of My Life

Shooter might be mildly hurt to find out his little sister has completely captured my heart...


What can I say...I like me some booty...


Bringing Beretta back to CO wasn't exactly the plan when I went home, but here she is anyway. Really only because, when I trimmed her feet back in SD, I see that they are kind of growing every which way again. Nothing serious, they just need more attention than being trimmed whenever I can get home. She has some funky flares around her heel area on her front feet. Probably residual effects from her migrating heels last winter. And her right hind foot was seriously out of balance. The outside heel was worn down and the inside heel was long. It balanced easy enough when I trimmed her, but I didn't want it to get that out of whack again between now and the next time I go back to SD.

Mom did find someone else to trim feet in my absence, but I seriously doubt he will show up every 10-14 days to take a little heel off of one foot.

Having Beretta here is not exactly a hardship on me. I have missed the little girl. She is such a sweetheart. She's also turning into everything I could ever hope for.

**See what's left of one of my shades behind Beretta? Apparently, a nice 'breeze' came through while I was gone and ripped the canopy to shreds. I think I was probably lucky there wasn't a horse in that pen at the time. I'm pretty sure that coming apart would have caused a wreck. Yeesh!!

Just catching up (how did i miss so much?!)... Beretta looks wonderful! Glad you brought her home, you'd just be worrying otherwise.

Can't believe Shooter is so big! He looks gorgeous. Pretty cool that he just accepted you on his back...

I can just see you in that top hat and tails. I'm sure those Dressage lessons will be fun.

Man you were not kidding about that filly.... That face!! Easy to see why she makes your heart pitter patter ;)


Love being able to watch these two (and Meg!) grow up. They're both turning into some fine fine horses. (And Meg is awesome too! LOL)

Smooch that filly from me.... *sigh*
