I snapped this photo of my farrier Pat making a set of winter shoes for another horse at the barn with my new iPhone 4s. I have to say, the camera is amazing.
Pat was out to pull Louie's shoes, so I'm hoping he's not too tender footed after losing the protection he's had for the past 8 months! Only time will tell. If needed, Pat will be out next week to make any changes necessary. I'm hoping that Louie will be able to stay sound barefoot for a good long while now!
Hello and welcome to my blog! Meet my horse Ro & Me's Master of Illusion or "Louie" as we call him. He is an 8-year-old American Saddlebred gelding sired by Trust Fund and out of Everything in Return by Royal Return. Louie was an exciting new addition to the family in October of 2008 and shows tons of potential both in the show ring and out. His friendly personality, curiosity and remarkable intelligence are characteristic of his breed. This blog will follow Louie through his daily life and training as he learns what it means to be a Saddlebred pleasure horse.
