Spring cleaning

It was too windy to ride yesterday. The morning was really dangerous with things blowing over and flying through the air. Just leading Olive and Thunder to the turnouts and back felt fraught with danger.

The afternoon was less terrible, so we drove back to the barn. It was still windy so we didn't ride. Instead, we decided to treat some of Linda's old broodmares to a spa day.
Look at all that hair!
Blissed out Khemecho.
One of the greys had a huge fairy knot in her mane. Here's the before...
and here's the after. Hurray for a patient horse and Cowboy Magic!
When Lilie used the grooming gloves on the same mare's legs, her chestnuts fell right off.
Don't you know, I'm going to post this photo in the NaMoPaiMo group every time someone says, "Don't forget the chestnuts!"
We curried until we couldn't curry any longer.
Then Lilie cleaned all their hooves, and we called it a day.
Happy horses. Happy kid.
This wasn't quite as good as riding, but it was still a lot of fun. Here's hoping we can fit in at least one more ride before Lilie leaves tomorrow.
