I have to shoe all my horses, get a couple of saddles repaired, bring in my yearlings and try and remind my saddle hrses that they are still broke to ride.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

I forgot to mention that I have to transfer the mud and hair off my horses and onto my clothes.

Kevin: yea, our farrier is coming thursday to get our horses all good and shoed and trimmed, I'm excited! I'm also, cleaning our tack like crazy and trying to condition the hell out of them since they sat in the barn all winter and have become very dry, stiff, and brittle. If you know of a better way to do this other than clean and condition, please let me know, as this is pretty darn time consuming lol. And I'm also working on trying to remind our three idiots that they know how to act whilst being rode haha. They're not actually as bad as I have expected.
Jillyann: I know exactly what you mean haha!

Kevin: Oooopss, I forgot about that also! Haha. It really helps if you have anything silk to wear as the hair can't get caught in it like it can other fabrics (I learned that from when I used to groom dogs)

I think I would rather be covered in hair than get caught grooming my horses while wearing silk.

Yea, can't say I blame you there dude lol. I would wear silk, except I got rid of all my silk grooming coats.

*sigh* it's begun here already. Denny is turned out without a blanket into a sand ring. He rolls in said sand ring, and absolutely coats every last hair with sandy mud. Couple that with shedding... *shudders* it's a task just to get him clean enough to throw a surcingle on. He's looked like Pigpen for the past week.

My poor nose, trying to filter clean air out of the dust. Let's just say that my kleenexes don't fare well..

Haha, don't you just love those black boogers that you blow out of your nose! Lol, I swear, I spend about 10 minutes of my shower time, digging in there and trying to make sure that there is no more black crap in my nose. That's why it's good to breath through your nose, because it traps way more debris that breathing straight into your lungs.
