This is the blog dedicated to my QH/TB mare, Miss Daisy-Mae...Daisy. Come along as I learn and experience more every day in the world of horses...
I like how you did that! Very cute.(the filming and the grooming)Daisy is such a good horse, she stands so nice and still.It was really a wonderful day. While you did this I was lying on the porch on my chair in the sun!!
OH I sure think she likes that :) Reminds me of how Tumbleweed is when I brush her :) They like to be beautified.
Daisy's such a good horse. She stands perfectly still when you groom her! She's gorgeous! (wait did I spell that right?)
Yes, you did spell gorgeous right....you know, ironicly, when I got her, she was so horrible at standing still to groom that I almost didn't buy her--she seriously NEVER stopped moving when she was tied...it's nice to hear that she stands still well, lol!
That was fun seeing you do that! I noticed you let Daisy sniff the brush before you began, is that a way of letting her know what you're about to do?Also, what is that strapped below your right knee?I need your tips on horse grooming so I can apply some of the same principles to gromming the donkeys! :-)
I let Daisy sniff the brush because some horses like to know what you're going to do--they might spook if you just start brushing 'suddendly'...also, if I don't let her smell it, she goes craning her head back the whole time to see what it is! LOL...The thing strapped to my leg is a cell phone-it's a cellphone case for riders that binds around your leg-I take my mom's cell phone with me when I ride "in case of emergencies"...:D
It sounds like you take care of Daisy so well and even anticipate any issues she may have before she does...that's a true partnership!Good idea about the phone.
That was a pretty cool video, but then again I love any videos. :) The horse I usually ride stomps his feet when he is cross tied. I don't mind, but other people do then and start correcting him.
Oh that was very nice....and reminded me I need to go get a pedicure!!! That's my special grooming!!Have a great day!!
You are a super fast groomer! And you put some real muscle into it, too.Daisy looks so relaxed, though. She seems to think she's being massaged instead of brushed. heheI was going to ask the same question about the thing on your leg. What a great idea to always have a cell phone when riding or with your horse, just in case....Probably gives Mama a peace of mind, too.
