You know Spring is coming because..

How are everyone's horses behaving? Duffy has been a little bit.. fresh Not in a bad way.. but raring to go sort of style... but it never lasts long, bless her... no stamina!

One of the mares at our yard figured out she was a mare, squealed, and bolted to the other side of the arena to a stallion.. that was an interesting moment.. had a few tankers too.. them ponies be getting fresh!

Bonnie is shedding like crazy. When I brush her, I can take off enough hair to make a coat for a small dog.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Ahaha I saw a news article a while back saying people use animal hair to turn to wool for clothing?? Maybe you could sell it lol.

I'm wondering, right now, why on earth I didn't clip my entire horse!

I know a person who did that with bunny hair!! She had the fluffiest bunnys... she would make them into sweaters that had little fluffy bunny pictures on them and had her 70 year old husband wear them. It was adorable. (Off topic but I bought a fluffy bunny from them.. it was the cutest bunny ever)

So maybe horse hair sweaters with horses on them? Hehe I bet they would be itchy..

I agree about the horses being fresh! A couple of us at the barn went on a trail ride on Sunday (in a wind advisory... whoops) and all the horses were ready to go! It didn't help we ran into a GIANT tree collapsing, had to take a detour and jump some logs, and had to spend half of the trail ride on the top of a hill with no wind protection. Even my steady guy had a couple spooks... one was down a ditch.. that was fun heh

Oh the joys of spring.
I was talking to a lady one day about her girlhood horse.
She said, "oh how I hated those first spring rides"....
It seems things never change.

With the weather, my mares have started cycling in December, driving both me AND poor Reed mental. It's going to be a LONG spring.

Glad I'm not the only one ;D

Saying that, considering Duffy's 'greeness' under saddle (despite being nearly 7) I didn't ride her yesterday as YO is injured so helped out, and now I'm in agony with me ol' shoulder/neck injury and she didn't put a foot wrong this evening ;) Even with a stallion in there haha!

Is spring coming? It snowed here this morning, and I was going to be heading to the barn to ride. But now school is 2 hours late and the other school is canceled. Oh, and I planted my primroses on Sunday...now you can't even see them withering under 3 inches of snow...
