What to do on a windy day?

Bring the girls into the barn for a little spa treatment. Thought I'd share some pictures.













Need to try a different setting on my camera I think. <sigh>

Well, I didn't think they were that ugly or my photography skills were that bad? No comments regarding the horses or even just my picture taking skills?

We let our girls go face the wind Its been maddening lately (the wind) I once again attempted to scrape manure in our dry lot yesterday. Every time I had to push dirt to the south I ended up it in my face.
Great photos of your girls. Mine are getting manicures today so they are getting a "spa day"
