How is it that when the ground freezes and the mud is completely gone Brego gets the filthiest ever? Seriously?? And it's impossible to get him clean. And he STINKS. It was the same thing last winter. He turns one spot in the run in area into a sewage swamp of urine and such then lays in it. Rolls in it. REVELS in it.
UGH! This isn't mud... I wouldn't mind mud so much.
He is so lovely and graceful *cough* and noble *cough* and elegant *cough*laugh*cough*. "Fairytale horse" my butt!
Not only that but he must hang with a rough crowd of fairies or witches. Because they go wicked mad on his mane.
It's hard to see, but he had three massively knatty "creatures of the supernatural world" braids. I've heard them called witch braid, fairy braids, fairy knots, etc. but i just call them "those *&%#@@%&%$ rat's nests in your &^$@@!#$^^$ mane!!" They are usually underneath a lovely lock of untangled hair, so you can't see how horribly knotted it is until you see him shake his head OR go to brush it out. I wish you could see how ratty it really is but it actually looks pretty good here. DON'T BE FOOLED!!!
I bedded his usual "pee and play" area and what did he do? just picked a different spot to pee and roll. *slaps forehead* I groomed him all up right after taking these pictures, ended up reeking of barn stench, and within an hour he looked the same, only now he was wet and stinky instead of dry and stinky. What a doofus.
He is just SUCH a boy! Ah well, I love him anyway. It's just not as nice to hug on him when he smells like a porta-john. lol.
