Mighty Fine Shine

It occurred to me that I haven't had a Ramsey update in a while.  In short, he is doing well.  He had an abscess in his good front hoof a few weeks ago after the ground got hard for the first time since last year, but I got it drained and kept it wrapped for a couple of weeks and it healed quick.  Actually, I wrapped both feet just because I believe in maintaining a healthy dose of paranoia, especially where Ramsey is concerned.

For the rest, just check out that shine.....

I think he is at an ideal weight, his coat is soft and silky and just starting to thicken up.

If you look close, you can even see some chocolate dapples.  Ramsey is looking mighty fine.

And he is still the demanding, spoiled, loveable brat that he has always been.

"A little help here would be nice Ma.  I'd be even finer if I could just reach these leaves...."


  1. A handsome baby boy, all grown up. Muy guapo. (very handsome)

  2. A very handsome young man you are Ramsey! Great to see you gleaming in the sunshine :-)

  3. That is the kind of Ramsey update we like to see! (Well, except for the abscess scare - no wonder you "believe in maintaining a healthy dose of paranoia"!) He does look picture perfect healthy, slim and trim, and his shiny coat always amazes me. How does he get such a glamorous, silky coat - from being brushed and brushed some more? Or does he have a "silky gene"? Emma looks silky, too, although with her color that trademark Dancing Donkey Shine isn't quite as visible in the photos?

  4. P.S. Speaking of admiring... your wood shed... and your beautiful pond - phenomenal!!
