Last night was a fun packed night, we had hoof man come to visit! The thought of hoof man's visit normally gives me and FH the groans. We pace a little and wait for the answer to our big question!
How will the mules behave this time? The Mini in particular is not too keen on having his feet touched by anyone except FH, Dragon is well indecisive..... most times she's fine with the concept of getting a mani-pedi but sometimes she just ain't in the mood (typical woman... best not say that too loud ;-)
So the evening drew closer and FH and I decided what would be would be and we'd just roll with the punches. Hoof man was patient and kind and both of the mules were.... shock horror..... extremely well behaved! It would seem that with patience those mules are coming round to the idea of a lovely mani-pedi and the idea that people in general are nice :-)
In this house we understand that mules will teach you patience and test your patience but when they have blessed you with their trust the rewards are ample.
And what about me I hear you cry? Well I kinda snuffled hoof man a bit, especially when he said I had the nicest little feet, I gazed adoringly at the little raspy thing and then I ate my reward pear very noisily and made sure that FH got to share too, I gave her some pear juice on her trousers to lick off later - lucky or what?!
I'm so looking forward to a weekend of fun and sun, I am busy growing my winter woolies again too so no time to waste, must persuade FH to groom me some more. I kept my summer coat for all of 2 weeks and have now decided it's time to work up to winter weight.... coat weight anyway!
Have a lovely weekend friends and in honour of the concept of mule patience here's my quote for today:
Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
