Come on Eliz, you mean you don't enjoy going into the house in the evening looking like you put on black lipstick? What's wrong with you?

Note to self - remember what color horse is when getting dressed.
Light horse and dark clothes or light clothes and dark horse = Bad

But what do you do when you have a dark bay and a buckskin? Stripes?

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

I'm in real trouble here. The mornings are still chilly, and the afternoons are already hot. Dancer is a grulla - but right now she looks more like a buckskin since her winter coat is much lighter in color than her summer coat.

Rain is a very dark bay right now, I'm anxious to see what her summer color will turn out to be - she'll turn 1 in June.

Misty is a perlino and America is a really light Palomino (isabello?). Nutmeg is a bright chestnut - even her winter coat shines like a copper penny) and Scooter and Junior are bay paints.

So... what the heck color sweater do I wear? I generally groom in the mornings, right after feeding time.

As for lip gloss, I had to give that up altogether. Rain thinks it tastes good. Ugh! Horsey breath!

Plain Old Dee, horses Dancer and Rain

I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men and other mythical creatures!

I was working the other night and grooming a Belgian who was shedding. It was also very windy. Turned around to say something to another person and got the entire inside of my mouth covered in hair...

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

One of my boarders has a husband with an extreme allergy to horses. She wears a cheap rain coat and wind pants when she grooms during shedding season. Reduces the chance she gets horse hair in her vehicle.

Wear Green! Or Red! I find it works pretty well ;)
Well, that is if you want to add yellow, red, black, brown (what ever color you horse(s) is) to the garment to make it more interesting! haha

A pony is a childhood dream, a horse is an adulthood treasure.
