Warming up

The barn owner was not able to halter Panama today (though I think it has to do with the fact that he tried right after bringing out the hay, so Panama was probably afraid he wouldn't get breakfast). So late this afternoon I hopped into the car and drove over the barn to take his blanket off myself.

After taking off the blanket, I groomed Panama for the first time in almost two weeks. We were in the sun, and he was very relaxed — and we all know what happens to a gelding when they are very relaxed! Ha ha! It's definitely warming up post-snowstorm, and I was even too warm with a T-shirt, sweatshirt, and light jacket on.

Anyway, I curried and brushed a ton of loose hair off of him (and there's still more that I couldn't get), brushed his mane and tail, picked his feet, and gave him lots of kisses and treats. He was very affectionate and sweet, not to mention well-behaved. Obviously he liked the attention very much.

I hope this snow melts quickly, as I am really looking forward to working Panama more often this spring — starting this coming week, if at all possible!
