Smile Is the green grass making your GOOD horses go NUTS?

Ok, this is silly but my grass is growing!! and the horses are totally nuts!
I took out Cowboy (my daughters DB 15 year old gelding) and he was going completely grass crazy. I rode him for 30 before I put the kid on him JIC like always, he did great like always, ground tied like always, but ugh!
I go out to mess with the horses two or three times a day, grooming, checking, feeding, and the past few days they won't even give me a holler or even look in my direction!
Here is Cowboy we are having to hold him tight, which is NEVER the case! EVIL EARS!

And him trying to let me know he does NOT like having to stop eating for a picture! Cranky old man!


It's a GREAT problem to have, are yours acting NUTS?!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Going nuts over grass??

Sadly, no... We just got another snowstorm on Friday and we are not expecting to see green for another 6 weeks or so.

I am envious of your predicament!!

Oh, and are those BLOSSOMS on the bushes in your pictures?? I am soooo jealous...

Yep! Baby's breath, pear trees, peach trees, daffodils about done, lilacs going crazy, those are tiger lilies starting to grow in the first picture and the wild cherries look awesome on the hillsides.
Sorry bout the snow! UGH! Hoping we don't have a late frost or else we are sunk.
It's coming! Hang in there!

Wish Cowboy was still a lovely dappled grey like your avatar! He's a mud lovin grey and I gave him a bath the day before yesterday! Dirty flea bitten grey!

Oooooohhh the sights and smells of spring! Lucky you!!!

As for my dappled grey, he's a mess of mud and hair and desperately needs a bath but it's too cold!

Yup after the first warm day we had the grass turn green like that ~snaps fingers~

After about a weke being out on the lush green grass I got on TC. This horse who hasn't bucked in over a year decided "Hey I's gonna be a bronc today" it was interesting but fun all the same =P Then Phantom my old man(25yrs young) was running around acting like a yearling it was cute.

~ Hope is never light years away ~
