This was a busy day working with the horses. I didn't get pictures of Tony giving Coal a bath or Travis cooling down Cahlibur's legs. I grabbed my camera while Coal was drying by the side of the trailer. Travis walked Clancey in and out of the trailer to see if he had forgotten his trailer training. Clancey just walked in and out without skipping a step. Then it was Clancey's turn for a bath. He didn't quite like the water when it got close to his head or under his tummy!
At this point Coal was dry, so Tony put him back in his pen just in time for a dirt bath! Clancey was drying, so Travis put Cahlibur back in his pen for his dirt bath. Travis acted like he was going to stay on Cahlibur's back until he started to get up. With Cahlibur diagnosed with RingBone, he did not want to hurt Cahlibur by adding extra weight on his back.
Since Coal and Cahlibur were grooming each other, Tony walked across the stables to get Daffinah to see how she would load in the trailer...now, that is another post on another day.
Warning: The song that is attached to this picture album is My Rifle, My Pony and Me. It is a home recording of my family, singing. Travis and Tony were 14 and 15 when we recorded this song. My father sings harmony while I play the keyboard.
