|Beards: Not sexy. Ever|
Now, there are tons of things to love about Texas: the ability to knock out two shows before the new years, not having to shovel roofs (sorry, New York), an overdose of state pride. However, this lovely pseudo-tropical retreat leaves my ponies feeling like they brought the wrong wardrobe on vacation
|See the difference?|
Be Forewarned: This is a picture heavy, super adorable and probably itchy post.
Scratch that. Very itchy. There will be little itchy horse hairs everywhere. I think I need to shower again. Maybe twice.
Since it was a lovely 60 degree day and the arena was still too wet to ride in so it seemed the thing to do by starting my day off with a pony bath.
|Tilly is not impressed|
|Bucky in all of his fluffy glory|
Tedious. But at least my feet dont get wet and there is no mud. Win-win!
Why only half of Tilly, you ask?
Because I'm freakin' creative. And honestly, I kind of assumed what could go wrong?
I taped the stencil onto Tilly's unclipped butt, and let the fur fly!
|It's all about the bass|
For So. Much. ADORABLE.
Encouraged by my success, I had to find an appropriate stencil for Delight.
I mean, the Blackfish cannot do bout sporting bows and hearts. That's just not her. And there's a distinct possibility that she would buck me off just for offending her. It's a risk.
So the list began.
Bows? Adorable on Tilly, but Deli doesn't want to be a copycat.
An Orca? Perfect! But too tricky for an amateur body clipper like myself. And no one else would get it...
A shamrock? Celtic knot? Blah.
So, in the spirit of the season... And for ease of application, Delight earned some Christmas Bells!
|Not quite as vivid as the chestnut|
And now I need another shower. I feel itchy again just thinking about all over again. So many tiny itchy little hairs!
