At some point in March, my horses started to shed. While that was a happy moment – who doesn’t love signs of spring, right? – it was also one of hesitation. To brush or not to brush, that was the question. Because it was March, and this is Colorado. Sure enough, we got a snowstorm in the middle of March.
April arrived, and the horses really started shedding, so I figured it was only fair to brush them. That fur had to be awfully itchy. And, hey, it’s April. It’s 75 degrees. Spring and sunshine and rain are here. No more snow. Right? Wrong! Tomorrow, we are supposed to get a blizzard. That’s right. Not rain. Not a few inches of snow. A full-on blizzard.
My horses are Mustangs so they would be dealing with this in the wild. Their fur would have come off by itself even if I hadn’t happily brushed so much of it a few days ago. I am happy that they still have some of their fur to keep them warm and plenty of hay. And all this moisture…well, it will make the grass grow, and as a horse person you know what that means. Hay!
I will obviously be inside all day tomorrow and probably Thursday so if you need some equine legal work done – or a Massachusetts will or trust, maybe a trademark – contact me. I’ll even give a Blizzard Discount of 10% off any legal service you retain me to do starting today, Tuesday, April 9 through midnight, Thursday, April 11, 2019. Stay warm and dry if you in the path of this storm!
