Shoeing, Training, and Fun

The farrier was here again this week. He gave Lincoln a new set of shoes, but also trimmed two Clydesdales and a pulling pony, which need to go in the stocks. Afterwards, Terry put a harness on the Clydes for the first time (for the first time for the owner, I should say), and proceeded to ground drive them. The one that knows how to drive, was a bit skittish; the own that is not trained to drive, picked it up quickly.

Once Saturday came, I took Danny and my new show cart out with friends in Pachaug State Forest. What a fantastic single horse Danny has turned out to be. Terry, meanwhile, raked and baled hay with horses: more on that in another post.
