Too Hot for Comfort

I can deal with the heat and working in it, but when your job is walking dogs and keeping a 10 month-old menace of a golden retriever busy, the heat kind of ruins your day. I get to spend time just being a chew toy now because running this dog into sleep mode is out of the question. I think I have a few permanent tooth marks in my arm... But he's super cute.


Yeah... You agree... I know you do.

I have two dogs with diabetes this week at two separate houses, and this guy is more difficult than them. But then he gets super cuddly and misses him mom and I feel bad for getting aggravated when his razor sharp nails and puppy teeth try to tear through the leather layer of my skin... *insert emoji*

So I'd like to thank everyone for their responses for my farrier "problem". The guy I've been using came right out and fixed it without an issue like he always does. I forgot to add that he wears bell boots ($25 really good ones) 24/7. Everyone has great points and I think for right now because Brantley is going so well with the work he does, I'm going to stick with him for a while longer. I'd rather that than him not losing shoes and refusing jumps or tripping on trails again. I think that's what happened with the other guy I used. He's a workaholic like me and I think because Brantley has been so great, he kind of just let his feet go too much and I was too much of a pussy to say anything.

**I interrupt this problem to tell everyone that cute, annoying puppy is now untying my boots**


Because of the heat and my schedule, I haven't been able to ride anyway. I planned to take him out for a run at like 430 this morning but apparently the alarm on my phone didn't want to work. Whoops! We did have a nice little shoe-less ride on the 4th though with a good friend and her new horse though. I even hopped on bareback for the first time this year! He had that, "Oh man, this again?" look. Kate came by with Hannah so while she hopped on Cassie's new pony, we worked on training Brantley.


She was a natural. Threw her arms right over him and when I said, "Rub! Rub! Rub! Pat! Pat! Pat!" she did like she's been colt starting her whole life. Brantley loved it. We're getting closer and closer because I don't know about you, but I think this has "Heart Horse" written all over it:
