Although we had 10 inches of snow yesterday in my town, I’m glad to report that I also saw the first signs of spring. Zelda is shedding. Massively. Despite the wintery outlook, under her blanket is several birds’ nests worth of loose hair. I didn’t clip her after hunting season, so she has enough coat for several horses.
Shedding out is the reminder that days are getting longer. It’s no longer dark at 4:30 (although it has been wickedly cold). It’s quite a treat to be at the barn at 5 p.m. and discover that I don’t have to turn the outside lights on. Now, if only we could get it to warm up a few degrees.
