 Candy and her babies.  That is Ed on her left.  He is growing like a weed.  The other calf is her own - Dandy.  She is the larger of the two.
Her forelock resembles Rod Stewart.  Nothing I do helps it grow or be pretty.  I wanted her to have a mane and forelock like Rusty but to no avail.  This is what she has.  A friend recommended coconut oil on it to calm it and to encourage it to grow.  Didn't have time today though.  Did some ground work in the round pen earlier and some bending and backing  and so on.  I didn't feel too  much like riding and I was here by myself.  But wanted to keep her reminded of doing the ground work.

Hope you had a good Saturday.




  1. I've heard good things about Shapely's MTG for growing hair but I don't have any personal experience other than I know it smells absolutely awful.

    I didn't have time for my horses today but I did pen them up and get the old guy ready for his new home, I fed a friend's bottle lamb and pigs, went to work and saw a porcupine quill dog, dog that had been shot, dog going blind, broken toe dog, and adopted out two kittens and then came home and went to get a couple tons of hay. Whew! Looking forward to my days off!

    Happy Mother's Day!
