Frozen Fingers

Yesterday I went out to the barn to drop off Riesling's SmartPaks and he would have been damned if I didn't give him cookies. I don't think there is anything better than your horse recognizing your car and when he hears you come into the barn he nickers.

I have yet to find any of my winter gloves that are in the dark depths of my trunk. But I couldn't just not take him out. So I let my fingers freeze and gave him a good pampering session.

I've been trying to grow out his tail since the day I got him over 6 years ago. When I got him it was to his hocks (sads). I've used a variety of methods at this point but I think I found one that works. I keep it heavily moisturized with EquiFuse serum and brush it every time I groom. I found that it keeps it tangle free and I lose way less hair than when I braided and bagged it.

Today I have a half day at work so that means riding time! Yay. Now if only I wasn't so grumpy this morning I forgot my breeches. Oops. Guess I'm going home after work and heading to the barn in the later afternoon.
