We lucked out this weekend with one of those rare stretches of warm weather, abundant sunshine and low humidity that just makes everybody want to head outside. After the brutal winter we just endured, we, like everybody else, took full advantage of the glorious weather and started tackling the endless barn to-do list. After putting up hay, checking power inside the trailer, and getting a few rides in, we touched 80 degrees on Sunday afternoon just in time to start bathing. The girls had a long winter too, and their tails were darker than their bodies. This task was beyond overdue!

We were also excited to try out the Manely Long Hair products we’d picked up at Equine Affaire. After one round of shampoo, one round of conditioner, and then quick bit of detangler, we were very pleasantly surprised at how well these products worked (and how great they smelled!). First washing done…many more to go….
