My horse is a baby too...

I have been doing my best to get out and see Boomer once per week.  Weather and family obligations have kept me from going out more frequently.  The rest of this week looks like it will be in the 70s and sunny, so hopefully I will get a little more barn time!  

I went out on Sunday to meet the farrier, who ended up being 2 hours late.  He was out to trim about 5 horses and Boomer got to cut to the front of the line since I needed to get back home soon!  I pulled Boomer out of the pasture, where he had been running the fence line because he was ALL ALONE!!!  I groomed the dried sweat off of him while we waited for the farrier.  He was being a spaz about standing still in the barn isle and I don't like to crosstie him on concrete, so I took him out to the hitching post to tie him.  He starting screaming his head off because he COULDN'T SEE ANY OTHER HORSES!!!  I just left him tied and went to talk to the other boarders.  He stood tied for about 90 minutes and after about 30-45 minutes he calmed down and stopped crying like a ninny.  I was actually very proud of him!  He stood well for the farrier.  

All in all, it was a good day!
