Going down . . . . .
. . . . . getting dusty!
Now that's what I'm talking about!
Now for the tummy . . . . . .
. . . . . .oh yeah, that was awesome!!
This has nothing to do with hoofcare, but I just wanted to share these funny pictures of my gelding, Danny, having a good roll.
When we keep our horses blanketed, it sure makes life easier for us. But dang it, horses love to roll. It must feel awesome. Maybe almost as good as sex to them. If I asked horses to vote on whether they wanted to be blanketed it or not, it would be a hooves-down, NAH. Or neigh…meaning not just No, but OH HELL NO!
Shedding and new hair growth is happening continuously with naturally-kept horses and they are normally much more efficient at regulating their body temperature than we are with blankets. Healthy, horses can handle the cold and they can handle the wet, although they may get chilled if both are happening at the same time and that can be a problem in the Northwest, but if they have a loafing shed to get out of the rain, and out of the hot sun, they’re pretty happy with no clothes on!
