Scritchy Saturday.


Nothing feels quite as good as a roll in the indoor arena's sand. I ride down the lane (I guess you could call it trail riding but I do it every day!) so being in an indoor arena is a great thing. I can work on me rather than Indigo and when we are done I strip all her tack off before bringing her back out of the arena. She promptly wanders over to the deepest sand and rolls several times on both sides, getting up, flipping right over, scratching her head, legs, belly and back. Once satisfied she shakes off and wanders over to me as if to say "Ok, we can go home now". I am lucky to have an indoor arena when I want to trailer to it. Indigo is lucky to have a mom who lets her indulge in rolling around in the sand once shes done her job.

I was wondering how you customized the look of your blog.I want to do the same for my blog but I don't know how.

I do a lot of my stuff on photoshop. The banner at the top was pretty simple, just text and brushes.

Awww, that's a cute picture. And you are a good Horse Mom to let your horse indulge in the things she enjoys. :)

Nothing better than a good roll in some good sand or dirt in our case!

that's a cute picture! what a pretty horse! :D

You are really nice to let her go roll; I'm not sure I'm that giving! But then, I do let my mare go out in her paddock and roll, when I could choose a clean stall, so that's sorta generous :-P lol.

I love it when you get done brushing them then let them go and the first thing they do is roll.
