A Nothing Post

Life moves on and Bella and I just stay plump. She is maturing nicely in our desert walks, but lays her ears if someone tries to pass. Her little short legs do double-time so she can stay ahead of the Tennessee Walkers and Hanoverians that get to watch her "attitude" from behind.

Bella-12 Hours Old

And my font size is almost bigger than her. 5 years ago and so much life lived.

We had the equine dentist out and Bella had her first ever real check-up. She had a lovely cocktail and then the scraping, pulling and adjusting commenced. Now, a few weeks later, she is much more comfortable without those troublesome wolf teeth getting banged by the bit. I had no idea the difference it would make. And, the dentist let me feel the "hooks" on her inside lower molars. Now I fully get the whole importance of floating regularly. Money well spent.

Oh, I saved the pulled teeth which are about the size of human bicuspids.

Our desert is blooming.
I heart my desert.

Happy Birthday Bella

5 years ago a little buckskin filly was born with a zig zag stripe down her back and a big attitude. The Queen has arrived.

She makes me laugh everyday with her expressions and opinions.

No Photoshop was used in that picture to enhance her beauty or airbrush out that funny shadow on her muzzle. It's just Bella in all her perfection.

Lucy and Ethel, Bella's best buds.

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Not so easy to see but Bella had a play-date out in the pasture. Lucy and Ethel, the two mini donkeys, got to go out with Bella. While Bella was very excited to have company the girls were hesitant to get too close. I was on anger management watch just in case Bella got possessive so I only got to snap this picture. Of course there was nothing to worry about.

Where did February go?

Not Bella
Yeah, Not Bella Either

But aren't they cute? We've been thoroughly enjoying some of the nicest horseflesh on the planet...all in my desert right now. Every winter these jumpers and hunters come to town for 6 weeks and we get to watch some very fine athletes, both human and horse. We have likened it to all the prettiest models in the world, one nicer than the last, all in one place for us to watch. For 6 weeks. After awhile one tends to get extremely picky about which is the most beautiful.

And I find myself tending to pick ones that look like Bella.

Is it just me or is everyone else in love with their horse?
