Burrs in the mane...

Cleaned a bunch of soft little burrs out of my mare's mane and tail today... when I got home I found a whole bunch of them in my mane. Guess they traveled from her to me because I know I didn't go out and roll around in the pasture!

Have a great day Y'all!

Next time, hug the horse AFTER you get rid of the burs.

Heeehee, guess your mare was just sharing the love. She didn't want you to feel left out.

My husband doesn't mind me coming home smelling of horse but I doubt he'd like finding burrs in my hair. He knows me and would probably think I was out rolling around in the pasture with her. Oh well, after all the rain we've had I'm sure tomorrow I'll come home covered in mud. Can't wait...

Oh burrs are such a pain in my rear end. Especially when picking them out of the mane and tail of a Friesian lol. Took me 20+ minutes just to get them out of his forelock last time. One of these weekends I am skimming the edge of the pasture and cutting those bad boys down. None of the plants are in the pasture themselves, but somehow Fynn manages to get covered in them anyways :P
