    It's a yucky day out, pouring rain.

    Snuck Kes's winter blanket into the house last evening, popped it in the washer (it's not like hubby goes and inspects whats in the laundry, I have it going all day anyways) and get it washed. Well, just my luck, as Im changing it from the washer to the dryer, hubby pops his head into the laundry room. Has a meltdown that I brought home horse clothes and put them in OUR washing machine. Tells me not to put it in the dryer, that all clothes after will smell like horse (like that's a bad thing?) Have to take it to the garage and hang dry it, which will take days.

    Good thing he never saw me washing saddle pads two weeks ago...LOL I'll have to be more discreet when I bring her stable sheet home this week...

    So Stan, do you wash your horse clothes at home or does "She Who One Must Obey" make you take it elsewhere???

    Raining here too, no surprise. I may go hang out at the barn anyways and check on Hunters sores. Hubby away its kinda boring at home and I did all the house work yesterday.

    I washed my saddle pad at home but it was a fairly thin one and hubby didn't say a word. Now if I was to stick his blanket in there I may get a different reaction. WE have a pretty heavy duty washer but I don't think blanket will fit.

    Stan whats it like to be perfect? My mom used to sing that song when ever she had too much wine. Lol

    My long suffering hubby lets me wash pretty much anything that will fit in our washer. He'd better, because he's the biggest cuprit when it comes to messing it up.

    I don't blanket my girls, but we did have one sick mare that we kept blanketed. I'd wash up her blanket every so often, and hubby would grumble as he cleaned out the pump each time.

    We also have a BUNCH of dogs, so we also deal with a lot of dog hair. I guess horse hair, dog hair, people hair - it all clogs the same!

    Ya I could make a sweater with what I vacuumed up in dog hair lol
    Well was pouring rain at the barn although the dog had fun. Hunter was in his paddock with his face in a round bale so I just left him alone. His sores are looking somewhat better though.

    It rained here all day too. I'm sorry to hear about the setback, Grace.

    Eagle, is your neck problem a recent development? Please let us know what happens. As you already know, just spending time with a special horse is soothing and productive. You can always groom, hand graze and work on ground manners. I've got a couple of old lesson gals I've "adopted" for grooming and grazing.
