Horses Are Starting To Shed . . . .
Hopefully Mr. Groundhog was right in his prediction last weekend that Spring will be early . . . .
As we await another winter storm today here in the Midwest that's expected to merge with another storm for those of you who live on the East Coast I find some comfort in the sighting of one of my horses starting to shed!
Yes, it's true. As I finished lunging Joey, my 6-yr-old AQHA (an abbreviated session as the footing was not good with our 12+ inches of snow) I rubbed his forehead and was surprised to see white hairs falling out of his blaze. Horses are always a good indicator of the weather to come.
