Whoops, I wrap his tail in vet wrap afterwards (not on the tail bone of course) and then tail bag it. The little bum flap on his blanket covers the top of his tail, so it's safe from the rain. Posted via Mobile Device
I recently went from the Olympic rain forest to the dry, sunny East side of Oregon. Let me tell ya, horse keeping is a million times easier.
There is still mud here and it's clay~ so super slippery, but I rarely have to worry about it.
Living in W.WA I was obsessed with blanketing my horse...I haven't even touched my blanket in a year.
I'm riding 4x's as much through the winter...so it's cold..big deal because it's not raining!!!
And, I just fit in more here. In W.WA I found it difficult to bond with horse people. Here in E.OR, I've found horse people much more relaxed.
If anybody comes out to ride in the mountains of E.OR., hit me up! My place is just down from a horse camp.
Count me in. I am soooooooooooooooo done with this rain! I cannot wait for warmer, drier weather. And MUD! I am so over it! I do not have a covered arena, just the ranch to ride on or trailer out. I envy an arena in the winter but there is nothing like the 400 acres of ranch in the summer. Can't wait!!! Oh and what makes it worse is I got my mare in Oct and she abscessed so was not until into Nov. That I could really ride her and well, that has not happened much. Really itching to get to know her better!
