Newly Naked

Today was a lovely relaxing day between lessons, so the two girls & I went for our first hack in the woods since we came back to the stable at the end of June! Where oh where does the time disappear to?!

Nancy checking in with her big sis on our hack ♡

Nancy then got her mane braided so that I could give her a lovely smelling Ecolicious bath before she got clipped this evening.


Right well as it's technically wordless Wednesday; I'm going to shut up now (well besides captions of course) and leave you with a photo dump from bathing, drying & clipping the cuties!



More "arty" shots
(aka yes I was bored while she dried)

What Nancy thought of my artistic attempts

Kika "the giant furball" pre- & during clipping

Nancy pre- & during clipping.
The difference in the thickness of their coats boggles my mind! 0.o


Awkward stance "pose" to showcase her new do

Always dramatic posing from KikaChiquita

Nancy rocking the mini-skirt rug look a/w ' 14
(methinks a size up required sooner rather than
 later for the monster mare)

And two final snaps, just cos how can I not share more pony spam! *blush*

Before & after of Hairy-Mary


Tomorrow's tasks include lessoning & tidying up Kika's mane & tail and Nancy's tail. That way all the special occasion pampering is done for a while ☺

    1. Bless Nancy's mama hardly got a look in, her papa friesian stamped his look all over her. The size of her head alone is crazy! I hope Chrome's doesn't get that big. My friend who clipped the girls for me & i joked that more hair came off Nancy's head than the rest of her body! Or at least it felt that way haha

    1. I tried something different with that one. If i can I'll try to snap pix when I next do it. Although I usually need both hands, shall see if I can find someone to indulge my need for moar photos ☺

    2. more pics (or even, dare i say, video??) would be awesome - but even if you just describe it in words, that would probably help. i'm such a lost cause at braiding lol
