monday musings by shyloh #21

I got to spend a lot of time outside in the fresh snow over the weekend! It was magical. I was the first horse to make tracks in the snow, too. When I used my nose to clear the snow to get grass, it cleaned it! So the end of my nose is sticky-free from my ball of goodness.  I love being outside! Except when there is snow on the ground and I go back inside, I have so much snow packed under my hooves that they don't even touch the ground! I have to walk so so so carefully until I get to my stall and Allie picks the snow out of my hooves. I slipped once and it was not fun!
It's all mine!
I met a new friend this weekend! Her name is Dulce. She has been at the barn for longer than me, but we never hung out. Until Sunday. Dulce came out into my pasture and we got  along great! It is so nice to have a mare friend. Now we can talk about all the goings on in the barn and gossip about the geldings and the size of of their. . .hooves. . .We went for a run together. I had to be quick to keep up with her, even though she is not a tall Quarter Horse. I was running so fast, I slipped right on my butt! I got up real quick though, kept running, and pretended it never happened. I'm glad Allie didn't see, I would have been embarrassed. 
Bodacious babes of the barn!
New friends!
I also got to hang out with Casi and Ryleigh.  And I met a new boy. His name is Zaylen and he is a 3 year old Paint. He is new to my barn, but I really like him. I just met him while he was in his stall, but he made me go YOWZAH (if you know what I mean, wink wink)!
Hey there good looking!
When I was not ogling the geldings or making new friends or trying to find grass under the snow, me and Allie have been playing this game together. It is fun! All I have to do is touch things and I get grain! Grain! How I love grain! I'd probably do a cartwheeel for some grain if Allie asked me too. . .only if she asked real nice. And if she stopped making me doing circles on the rope again. Boring. Even if it does keep me warmer, being forced to walk and trot and walk and stop and walk and trot, then switch directions and repeat is a real drag.
Not having a good hair day, it happens to the best of us
In other news. . .I overheard someone calling me short! Humph! So to prove them wrong, I have only been drinking out of my bucket that is higher. I used to only drink out of the lower bucket, but now I won't touch it, even when Allie put an apple in the water for me. Short. I'll show them.
I CAN reach!!
And in my efforts to forever befuddle Allie, I laid down to eat my hay. Ha! You should have seen her face when she saw me! I win againnnnn!!


  1. Sounds like you're having a lovely time! I'm looking forward to reading more about your adventures. What a clever pony you are. :)

  2. Camryn here:
    My Mom loved the pikture of you laying down. I rarely lay down when she's watching either!
    Snow is awesome isn't it, except like you mentioned bout the snow slippers!!!
    So glad you have a marefriend. Makes me miss Dakota a bit though. I'm now the only mare on the block!

    1. Lucky you being the only mare on the block! No other mares to compete with for the geldings attention! Not they you would have too much competition ;)

  3. Try spraying the bottom of your feet with cooking spray like Pam or something. I've heard it works well to stop the snow stilettos.

  4. Shyloh, you make me laugh every time you blog. Such a personality. Love the hair too ; )

  5. I was going to suggest the cooking spray too. Some people say vaseline works as well. :)

    I'm glad you had so much fun with all your friends Shyloh! I love your forelock all fuzzy and cute. You're doing a good job keeping everyone befuddled too. Keep it up!
