Even though we woke up to snow this morning (really, Weather Gods?!) spring is on its way, and we are seeing the signs here on our little piece of paradise.
The big forsythia bush in the front yard is almost ready to bloom.
The tulips are coming up by the barn.
And the horses are shedding. Like crazy.
So yesterday we decided to have a “horse grooming day.”
Annabelle went out before I did to catch the horses. She insisted on wearing her new pajamas from Costco. She loves pajamas very deeply.
When I went outside there was no sign of Annabelle or the horses.
This is where I found her. Anyone surprised?
We caught the horses and got started.
Annabelle worked from head to tail.
Zach rode around on his sister’s four wheeler looking for mud. He found a little.
That was fun until Winston jumped up and stole his hat.
Then he just got off and played with the hair.
Winston also spent some time stealing our brushes. That pup has a serious oral fixation.
Aunt Susie dropped by for a little visit and she helped brush too. It was great to see her.
When we were finished, Grumpy had a very artfully braided/knotted tail. It took Annabelle about fifteen minutes to put it in. I’m not sure how long it will take to get it out.
Happy first day of spring everyone!
