Signs

I know alot of endurance riders around the county are getting anything but spring weather, like Endurance Granny, who keeps getting hit with huge amounts of snow. For whatever reason, things seem to be moving in the right direction here in Northwest Montana. I am hoping it continues on that path.

Just the other night, I noticed one of the first signs. It's a yearly event that I eagerly wait for. Y'know, that time of year when you go to pet your horse and your glove becomes one big mat of horse hair??? Well, it's happening here at Acer Farm. The horses are shedding and I am ecstatic. (they say it's the small things , right?)

Ofcourse, in another month , when every garment I own has remnants of horse hair, I may not be so ecstatic.

Time to dig out the curry combs and face mask....

Hmmmm....I'm gonna run some gloved hands over MY horse tonight see if spring is indeed around the corner in the midwest. I love shedding out a horse, and currying btw, it is so therapeutic. Love love love it :) ~E.G.

Yea my monsters are shedding clumps of hair even before all the snow has melted off the ground.

I don't necessarily love the work of the shedding but I sure love what it means!! Speaking of that, I am headed out right now to go groom , saddle and get a few miles on Maggie today. note to self- DON'T Wear Fleece!!
