Usually by the first week of April, I’ve already clipped my horses — eliminating that annoying shedding out period — they have shoes on, and I’m planning my first hunt.
This year, I’m behind. My horses are still hairy yaks and they are still barefoot.
Just as well! Because we had about 4 inches of snow yesterday. They were glad of their warm coats and I was glad the snow wasn’t balling up in their shoes. Sometimes it’s better to procrastinate.
