TWO SECONDS! That's it!

The nice, clean Ricci that I prefer...





And the other side...





And since it wasn't THAT cold, I hosed her off, then brushed her hair the wrong way. She looks like a pinto Curly, lol.





And because she's the prettiest thing to ever be on Earth... =]

Haha, no kidding. The real kicker is that she really isn't a roller! She rolls maybe a dozen times throughout the winter. She doesn't like being dirty! Lol.

She's pretty. I didn't think mine was a roller either. I spent about 30 minutes brushing off all the mud today.

My girl loves to roll. But luckily, it's only one side that stays real nasty so I only have to really concentrate on that side lol.

My old QH gelding was very sneeky about it. He would wait until I was just around the corner and then roll like mad. As long as I was watching him he wouldn't roll!

It always seems like the light colored horses are the piggiest! I have yet to meet a gray horse that didn't love to roll in the dirtiest spot in the pasture!

That is funny how it's on the one side. That reminds me of a horse my BO used to have. She was a gray arabian...or she was supposed to be. :D There was a bush out in the pasture that she would stand over and scratch her belly on and her whole underside would be green!! And of course she was varying shades of brown and yellow every where else.. When I went on my horse search I tried to avoid light colors. I believe I actually said this once when looking at a gray horse that I almost bought, "but I don't want a green horse!!":) By the way, I think her tail is adorable at that length!

Haha, I'm pretty lucky with Ricci though, she's mostly white, but she's really a clean horse, very rarely rolls. But this time was extra irritating, because it was mud, so she got wet and I had to wait for her to dry before I could blanket her again, lol.

Just get a fleece cooler, or blanket, and when she's wet, put that on her; it wicks away moisture really nicely, and you just leave it on while they dry... I keep trying to find a different one for my girl, but it seems like you can never find anything smaller than 78 in most stores...acck!

Oh she has a cooler, but I still had to wait for it to do it's job before I could put her normal blanket on and throw her out.

I know what you mean about sizes though, I'm pretty sure I'll be running into that problem with my younger girl, she won't get that big. Ricci, on the other hand, is an 81, and for some reason, there's always something in her size. =]
