Spring Haircut Time
Since Squidy announced that spring is coming, and the extended forecast looks warm for the most part, I figured it was time for my annual horse hair cut. This year Squidy is the lucky lady.
Every year I clip whichever horse I’m riding the most in late winter. I like to let them grow a nice winter coat for a couple months and enjoy not blanketing, but inevitably I get restless for harder rides and I get tired of spending so much time cooling out sweaty furry horses as the temperatures increase… so sometime around February someone gets some variation of a trace clip and then wears blankets for the rest of the winter.
The added chore of blanket changes is a trade off for the decreased grooming effort required for the now mudless horse and much less time spent dealing with a sweaty horse after every workout. Plus it somehow boosts my spirits that spring is coming! Time to get serious about this year’s fitness and training goals!
