UGH the mosquitos have been out in full force the last couple of days. My poor Miles decided to get himself as caked-in-mud as possible to escape their torment (smart boy). I totally should've gotten a before picture, but after about 2 solid hours of scraping, currying, brushing, picking, wiping and spraying I got my boy as pretty and shiny as could be without a full blown bath. I'm pretty proud of my handiwork if I do say so:) Miles is pretty thin-skinned (I know, a thoroughbred-what are the odds!!), but put up with all my (vigorous) grooming because I kept him busy munching hay and beet pulp mash the whole time:) Behold, my shiny beast as I let him wander around the (enclosed) barnyard after all "our" hard work.

Again! In case you didn't appreciate him the first time:)
Hello Sir! You are handsome. You can see that I am also handsome, yes?
Let us be handsome together.
Another new friend! Do you see how shiny I am, small equine?
Enough with the pictures lady. You have not offered me foodstuffs in many minutes.
Look there! I see much grass for eating! You shall be allowed one more picture and then I'm out of here.
