When I went to the barn today to take care of Miss Lucy, she saw me get out of the car and whinnied at me loudly :) I went over to see how she was doing and she looked so calm, almost sleepy. She was practically glowing and she seemed very content.
I wasn't able to ride today because her left front shoe is barely hanging on and so I had to call my farrier and ask him to come out asap. He will be out tomorrow to re-set her shoes and then we will be good to go. In the mean time I wrapped her foot with vet wrap and duct tape and though it doesn't look pretty, it is doing the trick!
A family stopped in at the barn, which is off a main road and so it sometimes attracts non-horsey people who are just curious. The family wanted the kids to pet the horses. Lucy was in the outdoor ring because I let her roll in there, and the family walked over and wanted to say hi to her. I was a little worried because they had a few young kids with them and I didn't know if Lucy would be good around the kids, but she walked over to them on her own accord, curious about what they were doing. I quickly grabbed some carrots and asked if the kids wanted to give her the carrots, which of course they did, so I showed them how and then gave them each a carrot. Lucy was so gentle and sweet with the children, which I never would have expected from her! She really impressed me. She gently lipped each of the carrots out of the tiny hands offering them to her, and let all of the kids pet her head. :)
