My house isn’t the only thing in need of some serious Spring cleaning.
My horse (technically, pony) could stand for a little elbow grease and whitening shampoo, himself. And now I can add “expensive horse detangler” to the list of things he needs.
After having kids, I’ve pretty much let Seamus revert to a half-wild maniac whose only contact with humans occurs every two months or so when he gets his feet trimmed. I haven’t ridden him in nearly five years. He’s practically feral.
But those burrs? They have to go.
When it comes to cleaning, I’d much rather spend hours elbow deep in horse dirt than cleaning my own house. I miss the time when grooming horses was something I did every day, sometimes several times a day. It’s therapeutic, and satisfying, and a mesh of peaceful and invigorating at the same time.
So. Looks like I’ll be getting back at it sooner than later, because those burrs have got to go!
Any out-of-the-ordinary Spring cleaning in your near future?
