You know Spring is here when.............
Spring has sprung here in Southern Oregon. The trees are flowering. The birds are singing. And the horses are shedding. Today is a brilliant blue sky day and a good time to get out and help the horses rid themselves of their winter coat. Pewter is in serious need of a good brushing. Which she thoroughly enjoyed.
See all the white stuff? That is just some of the hair that came off of Pewter. A slight wind came up and blew a lot of it around. And now that there is a lot of hair on the ground, the wild birds will come down and carry it off to start making their nests. Which I think is pretty neat.
Some of the donkeys got brushed, but they don't shed as early as the horses do. They all still have winter coats on. Before I know it they will be lined up wanting to get groomed to help rid themselves of their itchy winter coats.
On another note, the other day I was at the auto parts store and the guy behind the counter was saying that quite a few women are buying wasp spray as a defense against attackers. Wasp spray? Really? Yes, wasp spray because the spray shoots up to twenty feet away! Makes sense to me!
Until next time.................................
