Imagine my surprise when I showed up to the barn yesterday with temperatures in the 40s and this is what I saw.
No, I was not surprised by the boots. I knew that the barn owner put those on because the footing was sloppy on top and frozen underneath (not a good combo for tendon health). What I was surprised by was the fact that my mud loving pony was still clean!!
And then he turned around.
All well. At least I only had to scrap mud off half a pony right? I cannot wait until it gets over 50 degrees so I can give him a bath!!! It is not going to happen for a while though. At least it will freeze again soon. This mud is by far the worst part of having a naked pony! He rolled all over today so I don’t know what got in to him yesterday, but I hope he keeps it up! I would love to have a horse that didn’t roll.
