The horses were out without blankets. There were many rolls and lots of scratching and itching! It must have felt so good to be able to roll out some of the winter itches and soak up some of the beautiful sun!
The rolling wasn't just limited to the horses- the dogs got in on it too! Otis and Oliver were both finally able to break thru the icy crust for a good roll in some wet snow! Silly dogs spent a good portion of the day outside!
I had errands and laundry and 100th day celebration in the morning and then my Brownie meeting in the afternoon- so I didn't get too much time out there. But you can bet the time I did spend was glorious! I am so thankful for days like yesterday, these tender little reminders that spring will come. That the icy dog pooed path out to the barn will melt. That the skating rink in front of the run-in will soon be gone. That winter fuzz will shed and I'll finally be back in the saddle!
(and yes- Beau has a boo-boo on his nose. Came out the other morning to a trickle of dried blood- not sure how it got there, but the poor guy was swollen for a few days and has a crusty little scab now!)
(And, I think ive figured out the pictures- add them first THEN the text. now if I could just figure out spacing...)
