It's a good day to be a horse...

The pictures speak for themselves. :)

New Boundless Photos

I had a friend come over to help me work with Bliss today.  He's learning how to longe, and I got a few photos in the process!

The foot adventure begins

You may wonder why I am posting pictures of the bottom of Bliss's feet on my blog.  Well, I've discovered that all the science/anatomy behind the proper care and maintenance of a horse's feet without shoes is very interesting, and I'm going to try to learn as much as I can so that I can properly maintain his feet myself.  He has been barefoot his entire life, and nature didn't put anything on the bottom of a horse that wasn't supposed to be in contact with the ground, so if I'm successful, Bliss will never have to wear shoes, ever.

I've already started working on his feet a bit.  I've trimmed some flaps off the frog (the triangular shape in the middle), and I've used the gigantic nail file (called a rasp) to round the edges of his toes to prevent flaking and chipping (intentionally), and as well to put some lovely bloody gouges in my hands (unintentionally).
