We're alive.

But nothing more interesting to report...  I've been busy and stressed, so Riv hasn't gotten much (read:  any) attention.

Cute pics from last week...

Last week a couple of the barn girls wanted to groom River.  Sure, why not?

He rather enjoyed it, I think.

He's rockin' a pretty new halter!

Yeah, I was turning him out and couldn't be bothered to get a lead rope..  But pretty pink and polka dots!!

How to keep your horse from being stolen

The Mare is 100% theft-proof for a number of reasons.  Some of those reasons, such as her witchy personality, chestnut Thoroughbred mare attitude, and ridiculously crooked front legs are things the horse either has or doesn't.

But never fear!  If you are unfortunate enough to have a sweet tempered, willing, beautifully conformed horse, there are still things you can do to reduce the likelihood of theft.

Here are a few of the acquired theft deterrents The Mare possesses.

1.  Dented skull

Nothing too obvious, but it's definitely there, and you can't hide or simulate a dented skull!

2.  Corneal scar

Scar from apparent flap of skin on side of face optional.

3.  Skin tag/extra nipple

So there you are, 3 easy ways to keep your horse from being stolen!

(I'm not entirely sure how any of these injuries happened.  The Mare's previous owner told me, but as previous owner is a pathological liar, I don't really trust anything I was told.)
