Leg work


Sunrise at home this morning.....

After the boys had their spinal alignment on Friday I was instructed to rub compfrey cream into a couple of their muscle dents and also to do some leg stretches with both of their back legs (forward and then up like the letter J backwards)....

Well since my back is a bit sore I decided to use the 12ft line to achieve this today. It worked quite well... Maraschino thought pressure behind the leg meant go forward initially.... but I think we got it in the end.

We did lots more rubbing rope over his head and ears today (from nose to neck)....

Then I just gave them a good brush and put their winter woolies on for the night and fed them their dinner...

That's a beautiful sunrise photo - WOW! Awww, sounds like you had a very successful day with the boys! I bet they looked adorable in their woolies, I also think horses look so cuddly and warm!
