It's the time of year when everything is covered with a thick
coating of mud.
The snow has melted, and there just is nowhere for the moisture to go...
beneath the swollen mud lies frozen ground.
Mud never seems to bother the horses,
in fact they seem to enjoy it!
"Boys...do you really have to get so filthy?" I ask.
"Who's dirty?" asked Moonbeam through muddy lips.
"Well, if you'd just look over your shoulder, Moonbeam,
you might notice that your caboose is in dire need of a bath!"
"Awwww, Mom.... we don't look that bad!" Ollie chimed in...
"Actually, Ollie...you look as though no one loves you!" I answered.
It's been a long hard winter...and it shows!
As soon as warm weather arrives and stays,
all of these boys will be clipped and shampooed.
I'll be sure to photograph them, as they won't stay that way for long.
It's like Scarlet always says, "Boys will be boys!"
For some reason, Scarlet and the donkey girls are not so prone to rolling in the mud.
Thank goodness someone around here has a little sense!
Today and tomorrow are to be quite nice...temps in the 60's.
I will be finishing up the seed planting and cleaning out garden boxes.
It won't be long now until we are knee deep in gardening season.
I can't wait!!
Here's hoping your weekend is perfect and that you get a taste of spring...
wherever you are located.
