A little rearranging this morning for breakfast.   Bliss has been using Bonny's stall (her dam) during weaning, well now that I've put all the mares back together, Bonny wants her stall back, 9 year habit is hard to break, so Bliss got a new breakfast table this morning, and she's in the "overflow" paddock/shelter for her meals now.   Wasn't too hard to get her to go in to the pen, especially once I dumped her feed in the pan.  We'll see how easy tomorrow is.

Ok, so it's a tad early to pull out the clippers, but I did it anyway, as we've had unseasonably warm weather and the horses are rubbing quite a bit.   I did a little bit of head and neck clipping on Bliss, you'll have to look past the clipper tracks as I didn't want to shave her bald but just take off some of the fluff.  She tolerated it quite well and almost seemed to enjoy it; well, at least on her neck, she didn't like her cheeks and jaw worked on.

Thank you.
Can't wait for her to shed or warm enough to fully clip.

She's going to be absolutely beautiful once we can see the real coat without the fluff!!  So feminine looking!

I'm not too sure that Bliss doesn't nurse some off Bonny.  Bonny has a bit of a firm bag, not much but more than she usually has without a foal at side; and I've seen Bliss look longingly at Bonny's udder area (not seen actual nursing, but a guilty look and quick retreat if I'm around).  Perhaps just reading more into it than there is, I don't know.

Bliss got her first vaccination today, just the basics since no horses come and go and I don't show.   She was pretty good for the vet.  [Vet was out for bull testing, so just had her vaccinate while she was here.]

Only a little bit.  And, her stall is easier to pin a horse along a wall and get it done.
Guess, this means it's time to start kindergarten.

The 2 2016 girls spent time in kindergarten yesterday, LOL.  Love the way you put it.

Now, need to check out Spotty's thread.

I'll try to get pictures tomorrow.  I clipped a bit more of Bliss today, she had some areas that were matting really bad, so had to clip those mats before they pulled on her skin too much.  Mostly in her armpit, flank and down her belly, so her top and sides are still pretty fuzzy.   May end up finishing the clip job, but for now, she is more comfortable.
Need to trim her hooves tomorrow, I think, schedule says she's only about 6 weeks out, but still might trim sooner rather than later.
