View Full Version : Some spring pics

24-09-16, 02:35 PM
Finally starting to get some spring weather happening so even though winter coats haven't finished dropping yet I took advantage of a little bit of sun to take some pics and try out some of the headwear I've been trying to organise.

Bolly was highly offended about having a show halter on, took me a while to convince her it wasn't going to kill her.

Bern has a new (ish) bridle which he looks rather handsome in

Bella is still getting used to a bit and isn't impressed with it.

Blitzen is always up for a photo lol

Thanks Teetee, great pics. You have lovely horses.

Thanks Jilla they are lots of fun :)

Feel free to share any spring pics horsey or otherwise :D

lol sometimes I think I'm hilarious. :(

Your horses look so spiffy for this time of year. Mine is the biggest scruff bucket.

Lovely pics.... what one has your fav browband?

24-09-16, 09:29 PM
Lol that is a very spring pic lessa :D
They are mostly tidy around the face and neck now just a bit of scruffy winter coat to drop, Blitzen has a beard that I need to attack with the clippers though!

Thanks Cyrus :) I don't really have a favourite, I like Blitzen's one but it doesn't really stand out on him, might work better if his forelock was plaited though. Bella's one is quite nice I'd rather the rosettes didn't stick out so much on that one. Bernie's one is pretty it's a little big for him but will be fine for dressage comps. Bolly's one I was quite ambivalent about before I put it on but it actually suits her really nicely!

I think I like Bellas most of all too, they all look lovely. The rosettes do come out a little far, what is it made of, it just appears a bit different to the others.

I've been brushing my buckskin twice a day, he's hairy but is apparently part welsh cob, rapidly filling a big bucket with caramel hair.

Sorry, so long since I've posted a picture I've forgotten how to make them smaller.

Left a shower proof rug on him Friday as we were away all day, took it off yesterday and he had a high tide mark of hair balls along his belly.

The Anglo is sleek and as soon as I brush the buckskin he nibbles her. Click and you will get the video of the nibbles.

My anglo grows hardly any winter coat too. The thoroughbred, well, definitely some mountain goat in there going back about 20 generations or so.

25-09-16, 10:33 PM
Muzziet had mountain goats too :P
Love them all there.. very cute.

Awww it is satisfying when they have a very thick coat and the lovely summer one emerges :) Bolly has a similar mottling just a hint of gold underneath.

Cyrus I think Bella's one is mostly velvet and it has some sort of blingy chain on it, it's very pretty, it's a thicker browband too so stands out on her.

Lovely yellow ponies :)

Thanks Annelise, I am envious of your daughters pony she has a gorgeous coat already!

26-09-16, 09:49 PM
Ralph still wears his annual winter garb of Flokati; Iggy looks great and Dr Pepper looks moth eaten as buckskins do

26-09-16, 11:20 PM
Interestingly the two of mine who are almost done dropping coats are TBx but the two full WBs have been much slower and still have a long way to go.

Might need one of these.

Friends are raving about them, but I think I would prefer a more flexible - less rigid hard metal spikey thing myself. I think Skipper would bite me with that :P

The Equigroomer pony is loving it, very sweet.

Classic my wb/tb didn't grow a winter coat in his first winter down in SA from Qld. But now, four winters on, he's a champ at it. I thought this spring rather than clip I would just leave him natural, as the bay stays much richer. I use this, or 'Mr Sleekeez' which C. seems to like and also gets out a lot of scurf, and dirt as well as old hair. ddx

Best be getting one of those.

My anglo is sleek...but not in foal :p

but despite twice daily brushing the buckskin refuses to drop the belly hair, it just keeps blowing in the breeeze

Love the horses and the pictures :D HATE the browbands teetee. LOL I'm way to classical for those. Edited to add - the second one is okay.

17-10-16, 02:06 AM
Muzziet that belly hair does look a bit stubborn! Blitzen is taking forever to drop his coat but it's relatively fine so he's not too hairy, he will look good eventually then he will pop a coat again lol

Lol Bats I can take or leave them (browbands), I appreciate a nice one that compliments the horse though.

Was a beautiful day today (well yesterday) so pic overload again lol #sorrynotsorry
