'Tis the Season for Dirty Tails

No matter how white our horses may be...

...their tails and hocks are always yellow.

No matter how clean and dry we keep our stalls...


...the shavings always end up in our horses' tails.

No matter the color, no matter the shavings in there, those are still some lovely tails NM! ;) Give them all rubs from us!

Jeez, your horses tails are sparkling white compared to mine!
I REALLY need to get them washed. lol!

I'd MUCH rather have to pick out shavings! Mine just have run-ins so they can slosh through all the mud and snow they want...and they typically manage to gather huge balls of mud on the ends of their tails. Ick. That's always a chore!

I don't know where my comment went.

Your horses are spotless compared to mine. I need to break out that purple stuff real soon!

At your house too, huh?

I giggle every morning when I turn my three mares out.....they each have bedding all over them. The hazards of sleeping in shavings I guess!

Even the backsides of your horses are beautiful, NM.
Shavings, discoloring and all :)

You're making me feel better. Time to get out the Cowboy Magic.

I think they look pretty darn good for this time of year.

I have to agree with everyone else... Your horses look much cleaner than mine has recently.

Here's a picture that'll put your "dirty tails" to shame: my mud-dipped pony". :o)

Gotta like my black horse; the dirt doesn't show so much! How on earth did Katherine Swan get a link in her comment?

I used HTML. If you email me I'll give you the code. (If I try to put it here it'll just make a link and you won't see the code.)
