Back to the Grind

Last week we added teeth floating back into the schedule. We split the farm in half and float teeth on half the farm in the spring and early summer, take a break for a couple of months, and then do the other half of the farm in late summer and fall. Basically we try to avoid the hottest and coldest times of the year. Last week we had perfect weather for our dental visit, mid 60s and sunny. Yesterday we had awful weather, low 50s and very light but nonstop rain.

Whenever I start to complain about the weather (which has happened a lot the last couple of days) Jason shows me the forecast where he's from in Canada and I immediately stop complaining. But then I start again after a few minutes. February and March are unpredictable months in middle Tennessee. You get these stretches of beautiful days in the 60s and 70s and you start to get happy and comfortable. Then you have days like yesterday and today and it makes you grumpy and whiny. Unless you're Canadian like Jason and then you think of them as "nice."

Anyway, we're officially back to the grind(ing) of teeth in 2018.

Oscar looking annoyed in the flowerbed since we dared to sit on our own porch

Trigger, Homer, Thomas and Elfin seemed resigned to their fate as they waited for the farrier with their halters on

I took a few swipes with the shedding blade while Lighty was eating. Some horses haven't even started shedding while others, like Lighty, are in full shedding mode.

Wilson, Toledo and Johnny were all giving me cute faces
