Tomorrow is Superbowl Sunday so we went grocery shopping after leaving the farm and picked up lots of snacks and stuff to make finger type foods. I'm throwing my husband a mini Superbowl party!
Yesterday was a race against the weather. Unfortunately, the weather won. By the time I got to the farm and the critters fed and medicated, etc..., I was only able to work Johnny. Then some weird slushy, sleety ice/rain mixture starting pouring out of the sky. My farrier apparently melts if he gets wet so he rescheduled for Monday afternoon, and Pilgrim completely lost one shoe now. (I still love my farrier...just so everyone knows) Johnny somehow got his entire forelock tangled in burs. It had to weigh like 5 lbs! Heather and I worked for about 20 minutes trying to get it out, but Johnny had had enough and eventually I decided to just cut it out. There were lots of sharp pointy ones and I was worried they were hurting him. I had to cancel my afternoon lesson due to bad weather.
