Love those Leidjo babies

Anvil's Acres
Raising Norwegian Fjord Horses Since 1973
"Disposition, Conformation, Versatility"

Had a busy time lately. Took Lara and Solskinn to the Vet for Coggins and health tests. Previously I had put a halter on Solskinn but never tied him up or lead him. The morning we had our appointment with the Vet, I put a halter and lead rope on him and Orville put a bum rope around his buttocks and I lead Lara out of the pen while Orville and Sol with a little encouragement from the bum rope followed. Led them up to the stock trailer and I lead Lara up and let her look in and settle for a minute. Orville put her front foot up on the trailer floor while still holding onto Sol. I gave a gentle tug and Lara walked in the trailer. Her first time away from home. Josefa and Jussi were already in the front half. We had decided to get their coggins done at the same time incase Orville was home so we could go to the Libby Fjord Show in September.
With Lara tied and standing relaxed in the trailer, I stepped out and put Sol's foot up so he would walk in. Took a little more encouragement and in he went. We decided to turn him loose as he hadn't been tied up yet.
At the Vet's they had the blood drawn for the coggins and Sol was microchipped as well.
They stood quietly the whole time.
Home and Sol unloaded like an old trooper but Lara decided she was unsure about coming out.
The following Friday, Dan and Levi Watanabe and Pamela Garofalo arrived to pick up their horses.
Solskinn, as white horses are prone to doing, laid in the manure and required a bath. Again the Leidjo disposition shone through as he stood relaxed for his first shampoo and rinse. He stood quietly tied to a post eating his hay while he dried off.
Lara was beautiful as ever and only needed a good brushing. Orville had trimmed their feet the previous day and Sol stood quiet and relaxed during that as well. Do love handling those Leidjo Babies!!!!
