This week on The Owls Approve Blog Hop, we’re talking about our horses’ favourite things!
M’s fave would be a toss up between three things: our barn manager’s attentions (he ADORES her), clicker training (he loves treats, and somehow working for treats makes them even better?), and playing with his BFF. Frankly, whichever is his fave probably depends on the day, but at the moment Murray is pretty hot and heavy with Connor.
I’m sure once everyone’s back on regular turnout and Connor is just following Murray around looking for attention, things will be slightly less hectic. Which I am seriously looking forward to, because Murray is absolutely covered in play-love bites right now and his hair is peeling off in chunks with the scrapes. Which is fine, I totally respect his agency and autonomy and right to be a horse, but when show season comes around my vanity gets the better of me and I want my sleek, shiny, fatboy to be the horse that shows up.
Since it’s winter though, I’m cool with playbites and everything is adorable and loveydovey. Except that Connor got a really big hoof abscess that’s led to some complications, so fingers crossed for Big Red right now. I’m sure once he’s back in action, Murray will do his absolute best to nurse him back to health. Suuuuuure.
