The horses are spending up to six hours per day in their summer turnouts. Phantom's paddock is FULL of clover! No wonder he's being a brat.
Owner Susan says the Goober Boy is being difficult to catch when it comes time to return the boys to their winter turnouts. He runs around and ends up being the last one moved. She says it's difficult to get mad at him because he looks so pretty running around with his mane flowing and tail flagged. Our resident teenager, who was the one trying to catch him, merely responded, "Grrr!"
The geldings are all getting a little thick through the midsection and girths won't buckle in their usual holes. Plus, the boys are a little lazy in the arena. Sometimes it's the opposite -- a little good grass puts them in overdrive. But today it was all we could do to get them moving.
