Signs of Spring

Well that title might be a bit optimistic. The last few days have been sunny and above freezing which is leading to a thaw of the snow. I am cheering it on enthusiastically.

I know that this means that there will be mud but right now I'm okay with that.

(feel free to remind me of that when I start complaining later)

Other signs includes shedding. Yesterday when I brought in Lexi and Irish I saw that they both managed to somehow get dirty rolling. They must have pawed out a patch in the snow. I gave them both a good groom. It's easier to stay in the barn when it's not frigid.

Today it was in the double digits. When I came home I began to make sure that there are trenches for the run off of melting snow and ice. I then brought in the horses. Irish was nice and clean but Lexi was even dirtier than yesterday. I fed them and carried on with my obsession job of removing ice.

I noticed that she was keeping her eyes on me with a bright expression. I went over to say hi and she snuggled in to me.

In case you haven't noticed, I am awfully muddy. 

Yes I see that 

I really should be cleaned

She batted her doe eyes at me.

So I brought her out and gave her a thorough clean. She stood stock still absorbing the attention. As I gently brushed her face she took her head and snuggled into me.  I rubbed her ears and she purred.

It's a good thing that she's going home soon.


  1. I am sooo ready for mud, bring it on:!

  2. Oh, admit it. You're going to miss Lexi when she goes home. How can you not when she snuggles up to you, batting her big, doe eyes?

  3. Aww how sweet! I love a horse that enjoys being groomed! it is so satisfying.

  4. After today's adventures in shoveling ice and snow, I am more than ready to embrace a little melt and mud. Let's hope it's a slow, steady thaw...

  5. Awww it's going to be so sad to see her go!! I'm glad your enjoying her for the moment.
