The Blankets Come Off

It has finally warmed up a bit and the blankets came off. Lily and Sammy went back outside after the farrier was finished with them. Sammy gave me this look and I knew he was up to no good.

He bugs Lily until she will play with him.....or she kicks him, whichever comes first.

I love this picture of the two of them together. We measured Sammy today and he is just a smidge under 15'1......and it's obvious with them together he has the longer legs. But they are so much fun to watch together.

Lily is airborn....and letting Sammy think he's winning.....but she is getting her nip in to remind him two can play that game. From the scrapes and missing hair, I suspect she is getting quite a few licks in.

He is so nice to watch in motion. Here's his canter

And his trot

And then I get pictures like this........what the heck?

And this......he's got some muscle going on.

But no matter what, he absolutely LOVES to have his scratches.

Allison is the one he goes to for nose kisses. He definitely prefers them from her than from me.

Hopefully my work life will be more settled and I can quit being the absentee mother. Hopefully another update sooner than a month.
