|he didn't want to put his ears up. i made him.|
Or what have you.
So yes, I'll admit that Cookie Monster bonnet+snowflake polos+sparkle browband+ogilvy goodness+PS bridle+quarter sheet+sparkly bell boots is a tad on the overkill side.
I'll also point out that it is January and the cold fog is so intense that it's freezing to the ground and you can't see very far and that sucks.
Courage has discovered his new favorite thing IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
Standing in the rain.
No joke. I buy snazzy blankets for this damn horse and he stands in the rain with his head straight up so the rain runs under the blanket until the whole freaking thing is SOAKED.
The other horses give it up and go inside. NOT COURAGE.
Oh no. He's the only horse with a private drying rack set up in the tack room so I can rotate blankets enough to keep him semi dry despite his proclivities.
I can rationalize that he's from the track and he hasn't gotten to experience rain much and all that, but you know what? If he's going to make me work this hard, I have no shame decking him out in in snowflakes and sparkles.
It's on like donkey kong.
And yeah, I had to google that.
