Dear Iggy is master of his territory. He is always there to greet me as I walk down the hill from the house to the barn (usually with a winnie too! ). But yesterday there was no winnie, just a slightly sad look from this generally happy little guy. Look closely, can you spot what is out of place in this photo?
If you guessed Iggy's fly mask, you got it! Keeping a fly mask on, can be a difficult task for many horse owners. These lovely animals are nearly professional at getting them off. From the looks of it Iggy is working on his pro status, but as you can see, he hasn't gotten there just yet.
What was even better was the earnestness with which he tried to tell me what was wrong. Looking this way and that, tossing his head...
... and looking pretty darn silly all the way around. What was I to do?...
... after a few photos and a few more giggles, I helped the little guy out of course! A quick removal, and off he trotted, happy he had triumphed over the fly mask... if only for today.
