Pie, Red and Missy all needed some work, although there was nothing seriously wrong. Dawn didn't need anything at this point, since she'd had some floating done at the time of her last visit from the dental surgeons - my dentist will recheck her in the fall.
Two tiring but productive days.
Today we had hoof trims, and then Pie and Missy had a visit from our vet/chiropractor, which both of them enjoyed very much. Much traipsing in and out from turnout and washing of muddy feet - our pastures are an unpleasant mix of frozen, chunky ground and mud.
Oh, and an interesting thing - both my dentist and vet/chiro say that Missy is somewhat older than Mary was told - their best estimate (and aging a horse from teeth is always an estimate) is that she's 16/17 years old rather than the 10 we had thought. I had estimated 15 when she arrived. As I told Mary, that doesn't matter to me in the slightest, as she's a wonderful mare and I'm delighted to have her. We've had a few more than 30 rides together at this point, and she and I are really having a good time together.
And next week, we have our first round of spring shots, Missy is getting microchipped, all will have blood drawn for Coggins, and the boys will have things cleaned up.
Now if spring would just spring, that would be great - today the high barely reached 30F and the wind chill was pretty serious. I see some 50s in the forecast - can't wait for that!
