My Love My Mudpie

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

As I post these pictures that Bill took of my brumby this week, I feel the need to say that I have only seen Lilly rolling around in the dirt MAYBE two times. And yet look!!


Clearly she has spent some quality time rolling around on the ground. Maybe even sleeping there! Compared to the other horses, my beautiful brumby is one giant mud magnet.



Bill did suggest I put a sheet on her. That would keep her cleaner, and maybe protect her from a bite or two. But do I want my pet burdened by clothing? Well.....if I could find a nice pink sheet, maybe plaid, I'd probably consider it.......

Forecast for this weekend: RAIN.

Your brumby looks just fine all muddy - and besides, that means more fun time spent grooming!

Kinda funny, how she is the only half white horse in the field! I am going through the same thing right now. Muddy horses! No fun.
They do make pink plaid sheets...........

Lilly is so cute even muddy! I always wonder how you get her so clean for your rides. I know you talked about a special shampoo for horses with white spots, but if you shampoo and hose off before you ride then what? Do you graze until she dries? Do you ride while she is still damp? I can't figure this all out!!! You are right, though, it is good to know that we are all going through it now. I thought mud was in April! Also...you mentioned once about blogging and reading blogs at work...I am giving an exam this very second so I can blog away!!! My students keep looking up at me as they try to remember their artist names and dates and my fingers are making such a racket on the keyboard!!!
