Anyways, I arrive at the stable and end up having to search for Willy again. He's no longer with the cute mini ponies but is over at the south end of the property with another bay, and a grey. I wish I knew all the horses names but I just go with my usual greeting of "Hi sweetie" whether I know the horse or not. Willy was content eating his hay but walked off after I made a move towards him with the halter off my shoulder. I catch him and then bring him into the indoor ring to get groomed up. This past week my new groom bag arrived in the mail! It's very nice with one large pocket in the middle, kinda like a bucket and then several smaller pockets around the perimeter. I've been toting my grooming gear in a Whole Foods grocery bag, the fabric one, so it's nice to have a heavy duty easy to use bag. Each brush had it's own pocket, the hoof pick was separated to prevent ickifying the brushes and then in the big pocket I stored the four leg wraps, fly spray and baby wipes.

Willy and I made it back to the stable where I untacked him and groomed him down. I brought carrots this time with me and he was very happy to have this treat! When I moved on to pick his hooves there was an equine muzzle checking my rear end for any tidbits of carrots. He didn't nibble or anything, just checked me out! What a cutie! I returned him to his paddock and rested my arms and head on his back as I looked up at the blue sky. The clouds have been pretty amazing today, big cumulus clouds have floated about but nothing looked too threatening. I wish I could see Willy more than once a week, I think. I gave him a hug and headed home to the hubby and weekend errands, it's Sunday after all and time to start the new work week.
