My Cuddly Valentine Pony


I just got an awesome new cell phone and it's even more awesome in that it takes really great pictures. So I thought I'd snap some pix of Rugby to share for Valentines.


He's watching the grooms getting the bran mash fixins ready at the feed shed.


Isn't he a little shrimp? Remember, that's 17.1 hands of fuzzball!

How cute is this face? Even cuter in person! He was a good boy today doing what little groundwork we could. The ground is plowed in the small riding arena but slushy and icy in spots. He got special Valentine snacks afterward that my sons bought for him. They bought him a container of Stud Muffins. I got a laugh when I read the label. It says to feed 3-4 treats per 500 hundred pounds bodyweight per day. LOL! In that case, I should just give him the entire container! Last time I tried the weight tape on him, Rugby was wider than the tape and the tape only goes to 1350 pounds. The Big Guy rules!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I was just reading your past posts, and saw the reason you named Rugby, Rugby. I named Denali, Denali because my husband was in Alaska, and I wanted him to like the horse that he didn't know I bought.

Beautiful horse!

Very cute, awesome pictures! I'm so glad he's turning out to be a good boy for you!

He doesn't look like a fuzzball to me, but rather 17.1h of darn gorgeous horse. I'm so happy he is working out for you. You've had few rough moments together, but that is so typical of a new, young horse and a new relationship. You've turned the corner now, and I can see you are in love with him!

I love the attention horses pay when the feed is on the way. Now if they could only focus like that on us when we're riding them! *G*
