Spring is coming! Spring is coming!

That MUST be why my horse is shedding like crazy. Oh the joys of owning a horse. Not only does he masquerade as a llama with a big bushy mane and fuzzy neck just like in this picture; he insists on losing all the hair on the rest of his body in the middle of winter. So, all I can think is that he knows something I don’t and spring is coming.

Larry's unwanted hair

In the meantime, I am his shedding support. I stand ready with implements to hasten the process before we all drown in his hair (this is the amount of hair on a good day).Larry, his hairy blanket and pile of hair If it were clean (he hasn’t had a bath since fall last year), I would collect it and make yarn. If it were any dirtier, I’d worry about what I was ingesting everytime I breathe in while grooming him.

It will be over soon though, and until then, I have his undying gratitude for the extra tummy rubs (yes, he’s shedding there too).

In the meantime, he’s not the only one who’s furry at the barn.
