Ah, I remember the days of my heated water, heat lamps over the cross-ties, and even electricity to run the body clippers (gasp). Now with my horses living out my back door, I am without the comforts of a modern barn. This doesn't seem to phase P in the least! He's quite enjoying the mud!
And so it begins the endless cycle of blankets, grooming, riding, blankets, riding, grooming, riding, etc. etc. etc.
I am happy he gets to roll around and "get all the itchies out" though!
