Rodeo and his Hairy Self
 
I hate this time of the year! I cannot stand shedding season. Rodeo is looking awful! Everytime I go out to the barn, he is covered with dry caked on mud. None of it wants to come off, and his hair gets covered in sweat in no time. Hes finally started to really shed, which he didnt seem like he was shedding as much as the others, but he really is now! Hubby came out with me, and as you can see he still hasnt figured out that hes too tall and makes Rodeo look 4in smaller than he really is, but here are the pics anyways. Please excuse Rodeo's dirtiness, and hairiness!

Here are some shots of Rodeo and my hubby, please keep in mind that my hubby is a good 6'1''! Rodeo looks a lot bigger next to me at only 5'5'' ;)

Rodeo also had his teeth done yesterday! He has his wolf teeth removed, which the dentist said they were the longest she has ever seen, and he had quite a few sharp points, so all of those were filed down to make him more comfortable :)

Hope you enjoyed the photos!

Haha you are not alone XD tease looks like she has mange due to a combination of her not being brushed often before (trying to brush her daily now) and shedding her yak coat XD she's ALWAYS covered in mud, where she finds it I have no idea haha. Can't wait till its done and she's more comfy. She drips sweat when ever we move more then two feet.

Rodeo looks handsome as always to me :) will be nice when there all shiny and shed out and dont feel the need to be caked in mud 24/7 XD

Forgot to add that shedding season is also so enjoyable due to the fact that when you do brush them you also look like a yak after and have hair in your eyes, mouth, nose and bra. Oh summer please come soon!!

Oh gosh! I know.....Rodeo sweats that way too. I was working him the other day and he was just dripping everywhere, the bad thing is I really didnt work him that hard, but with the combo of his winter coat, and it reaching 80*F, Im sweating myself, lol.....but yeah, really cant wait until hes all shed out! Love the shiny coat horses have in the summer :)
But thank you! It sure will be nice when their all shed out!

Hahah tell me about it! Bad part about today is that after I brushed him, I had to actually go into a store on my way back!! lmao

Its funny though, with all the horses shedding, you see all these different piles of hair, all different colors, but they are all solid, just one color piles. Rodeo's are white and chestnut, lmao, its too funny.

Holy moly what a handsome tall boy you have (the horse of course) I love your boy but i had no clue he'd gotten so tall, wow! Im not even going to go on my rant about shedding, i have hair everywhere! we have to hose out the breezeway after grooming our horses! It looks like little puppies are blowing around!

He sure is growing! 15hh at the butt and about 14.3ish at the withers....his front end catches up, and then falls behind again, lmao its too funny! The way they grow just amazes me!

Hhaha but yes, we have what looks like little puppies blowing around my barn as well, lmao, thats a great way to describe it! hahah

You're braver than I!! Aires is a muddy, hairy mess right now. We had almost two feet of snow this past weekend and now have the mud to prove it (snow doesn't last around here...on Monday, our yard had about 2.5 feet of snow blanketing it...today [Friday] you can't even tell there was snow ever).

I totally feel your pain, Cayden is the same way, lol.:lol: But omg he's sooooo cute! I still can't over the fact that he looks like Maggie! (a school horse at my lesson barn)
