Dear anyone who thinks owning horses is glamorous: feel free to join me the next time I have to do horse "laundry", aka hosing poop stains off of their blankets with cold water when it's 30 degrees outside. Actually this is easier than chipping ice from water buckets or chiseling frozen poop from the earth on sub 20 degree days. And we never even get a "thank you!" from them. But it's not needed. Sure, it's not glamorous, but I also wouldn't trade it for anything!
