Wet Ponies!

Hey,

We rug our horses in water proof rugs every night, but they were hot and it didn't look like it was going to rain so we left them unrunged resulting in:

Haha, well they definitely look cooled off.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Eh, all the horses I've met generally like the rain.
Zu loves it, and it's nice to get cooled off, especially here in summer in Florida!
Ha ha. Cute!

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

OH!! LOL. I forgot that it was winter there. *blushes* Sometimes I forget this forum is worldwide. Poor guys, I bet they still enjoyed it though.

Chinga doesn’t seem to mind but he gets rain scald so easily and he gets to stay nice and warm in his rug! It was 5 degrees here the other day. I’m glad bubba had his rug on for that!

5 degrees!!!! man that's cold! we have had a couple of really cold days here where I've been out riding in 1.5 degrees but it is usually around 11-14 degrees here and the last couple of days has been a lovely 16 and 17 degrees. It usually gets down to between -2 and 5 degrees at night depending on cloud cover.

Pumpkin loves the rain. he stands out in the puddles in the pouring rain, falling asleep. it must feel like a masage.........

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
