    Dawn, you must spend so much time cleaning all those greys. Bloo's a minimalist paint and I've got enough trouble with the little white he has as is. It always ends up dirty the next day or ten minutes later so I've sort of given up. I can't imagine trying to keep the whole horse, let alone 4 clean. The threat of grass stains and mud will forever keep me from owning a grey or a predominantly white paint.

    Bloo had a farrier appointment so I braved the walk down to see him. My farrier is a dream of a man, that I would have proposed to by now if he weren't already married, and ran all the manure out for me because I definitely wasn't able to. When chores were done Bloo and I took a nap together. I probably should have thought about the sun moving because our shady spot got sunny and now I'm sporting a lovely sun burn.

    I have a grey mare, and she seems to almost self clean.

    Was another very hot day, so I decided we would seek some shade through the network of logging trails in crownland. Some were easily passable and a relaxing ride, others required figuring out obstacles. Not sure how far we went, had to doubleback a few times and take other routes, got disoriented a few times, anyways I rode for about 2 hours in the woods. Mosquitos and blackflies were out in full force, but I was prepared, so minimal blood loss to both horse & human.

    DW forgot to inform me we were low on horse feed yesterday so I may have to miss the Triathlon she is at with the church group. I was suppose to go straight there after I get off at 12, but now have to go the opposite direction and past the house to the feed store. Mine as well grab another round bale while I'm there. So by the time I get all of that unloaded at the house it will be around 2:30 and no reason to try and drive 45 minutes to get over the bridge to the beach side where the triathlon is going to be over around 4.

    I think I will try and get closer to Celeste's total mileage this afternoon...bwahhhahaahaaaaaa

    I probably should do more ground work with Jems to get closer to saddling her up and being able to ride her....nah!! I'll think about that when I get back....if it isn't too late....hahaha

    IIRC, I'm at or around 14 miles at this time for the year.

    Amazing! I have a grey gelding, and he stays filthy. I have to keep sheets on him to stay even remotely white, and still he looks like a light chestnut pinto from all our lovely orange clay soil splattered all over him.

    I too was thinking about trying to keep 4 horses sparkling white!

    She rolls in the mud, and by the next day she looks clean. Weird I guess. I'm not complaining.
