Maddy in the Mud

"I head out to Maddy's run and think to myself, "she is not too muddy today."She turns to head my way, looking good, showing off her new trace clip. I love that Maddy is always curious. If I go out to her pasture, she can't resist coming over to check out what I am doingAs she gets closer...I start to see her left side. Yep, I knew it was too good to be true. She is muddy, caked, my little pig trapped in a horse's body. The great thing about my new barn is that the mud is very minimal, even when it is raining hard. They do pasture rotation and the runs have great drainage. No matter, if there is a bit of mud, Maddy will find it. Let the grooming begin!

Looks really familiar - we're back out to pastures for about a week, so no mud for a bit, but then it's back to the muddy dry lots.

She's just adorable. That's not really bad for a muddy roll. My guys have her beat by a mile. They are disgusting pigs. Hope you had fun riding.

Lovely trace clip! My boy is liking his too. They look so sporty.

No rain/mud here yet - so we're all shiny pretty still.

Gilly is most always a mud ball when we have rain. Pokey is the one that is always digging to make a place for a dust bath that turns into a mud pit when it rains. Gilly is always the first one in the mud, Pokey will follow right behind Gil for a mud roll! They just can't help themselves! sigh....

Your Maddie is not nearly as muddy as my Maddie. Of course, my Maddie is white. I swear dirt to her is like hair dye to some women. My Maddie has tried to be a leopard appy, a paint, a dun (with the added help of Spot On fly stuff), a sorrel, a palomino and a few others I'm surely forgetting.
