Have you ever noticed...

That no matter how nice of a shelter or barn you provide your horse, they always just prefer to stand in the rain and get drenched?

LoL, took this one today when I went to feed Annie....

Yup, they do love the rain some days.

I think they are trying to get rid of some of that winter dirt -- so they can roll in the mud again, then stand in the rain again, then roll, stand, you get the idea.

LoL, roll, rinse, repeat.

They are so much like dogs in that way...as soon as you get them nice and clean and brushed, they find some mud or dirt. I think they're thinking, "Ah, now to get this icky smelling shampoo and conditioner smell off..."

You haven't met my horse. If one little speck of a sprinkle of a raindrop lands on him he comes tearing down his area and does a sliding stop into his paddock shelter. He doesn't come back out until the last cloud has left. But he is a diva of epic proportions...

Lmao, that's great. I am just picturing that mentally...you should definitley get a video of that and youtube it.

The only thing Annie is really a diva about is food...I have never seen such a picky eater. Well, as far as horses go, I mean. She's a lady, so she'll politely take whatever you give her...then curl her lips back and daintily drop it in the dirt somewhere off to the side. She has done this with most pelleted feed, apples (she hates them), carrots (she hates them)...she also paws her food chronically to get the best parts out, which usually results in some sort of spill since she's so clumsy.

My neighbor's horse is a riot.
It could be a torrential downpour with lightning, thunder, wind, etc. And he's just standing out in the middle of his field when he has a nice warm, dry, stall he could go to. Goober. He LOVES the rain.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
