It's cold, dreary, rainy, snowy, slushy, mushy, muddy, icy.
But you know what? This is what a Wisconsin spring is supposed to look like. While it's every farmer's and horseman's right to grumble about the weather, you'll grumble more if we get another hot spring and dry summer like last year. So hush your fuss. I know we've all got cabin fever... but there are things you can do to fend off the blahs. For example, why not mess with your horse's head a little? Harmlessly, of course... but hilariously if at all possible.
My horses Annie and Mr. Strut have ignored their Jolly Ball, forgotten about their rolling grain dispenser ball, and don't care a lick about any other toy I rig up. But put some helium balloons in their pasture, and boy do they perk up!
