I'm too slow...

So...while driving out to barn after work I thought to myself.....well I wont have enough time to ride...but I'll at least clean him up some! So I get to the barn and see my mess of a horse...Oh and hes a 7 year old quarter horse :) I've only had him since September and we've come a longgggggggg way since then!

(ps the other side was worse!)

Man..thats going to take forever...IDEA! I'll get him all nice and clean and finally try and get some confo pics and some of his hooves!!!!! YES great idea.

Well, after finishing barn chores and taking FOREVER to get him all nice and clean and pretty for you guys.......it was dark. I'm sure you can't tell me ANYTHING from these pics but I thought it was a funny story to share and I'll just have to try again another night haha!

Well I tried to lighten it up a tiny bit without completely ruining the picture...but he still isn't standing that great :( sorry for failed confo pics I know I have to retake :)

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

I don't see the pictures, but I can relate. A lot of time is going into grooming right now, whether it be dirt from rolling in the half mud half dirt, or for the massive shedding they are doing. I could groom morning and night and they would still look like I never do them, as the minute they go into the pasture they roll in the muckiest spot they can find. Ahh...whatever makes them happy I suppose

Oh myyyyyyyyyyy ... my solid brown gelding is a pigpen also! He looks sooooo much like that ... FREQUENTLY.

I am usually currying him like crazy, saying, "Really, Badger .... REALLY?"

Clean and horse don't go together. That's a pipe dream.

All three of mine like to roll at the same time. All three are either grey or nearly solid white. Ugh.
