Thank goodness for those with fur. I worry about Laz that he's cold all the time.
Jeez. I need to drop that worry. Today, I bundled up in my new barn jacket (more about that later) and headed out to face the C.O.L.D. As I pulled up, I saw Laz rolling around, then springing up and bucking around. Yea, he's really cold and miserable. What a sweet face. I still have his turnout sheet on as a wind breaker, no insulation. Winter weight turnout is still on hanging on hook waiting for cooler temps.
And Mason. I check his ears ALL the time to make sure he's warm enough because this little chocolate jock would go without complaints in the Artic. He loves winter! I do actually worry more about him out at the farm in the summer but I'm able to cold hose him down several times on the hot hot days. Winter, he just gallops around happy and warm.
After our workout, it was slurpee time. I'm getting the water to beet pulp shreds ratio better so it was more slurpee vs broth. Laz yum yum yummed it up!
Back at home, Mason and Pudge play their favorite game of "Mason stole Pudgie's favorite ball but will hold it in his front teeth to tease Pudge and to leer him into game"
The cuteness hurts sometimes :)
And since if you own a horse, you also own an empty wallet, or close to it.
I thought I would share THIS exciting news.
Ok, maybe not so exciting but money saving!
I bought a new down coat for the barn (MUCH needed). Got it on MEGA sale from Land's End (had never shopped there before)-got it for 40% off and Free shipping AND via EBATES which in turn, got me back 6% cash back.
If you don't know about EBATES, check it out and sign up.
If you are an internet shopper like I am, you get percentage points back on your purchases, so basically........FREE money for horse stuff! ;)
And..best of all, the jacket kept me toasty warm today in 20 windy weather.
Laz was OBSESSED with the fur trim (which btw can come off) and kept nuzzling it.
I got the jacket in brown which is so dark, basically black, and love love love it because it kept me warm AND has a double/two way zipper so you can ride in it.
