    One day he came up and I decided there was NO WAY I would ever get that brushed off, so I hauled him over to the wash stall and started hosing him. After a few minutes and the layers started coming off I noticed these pea sized bumps ALL over him and got worried! I kept hosing to get to the hair, when I noticed some of the bumps wiggling and moving under the mud along his skin. Now I'm REALLY freaked out!

    He was COVERED in tadpoles!!! LARGE ones!!
    EWWWW! (The poor tadpoles!)

    This is one of the reasons mine all go out in rugs.

    Sometimes mine comes in half sculpted and I only have to chisel away at one side. But other times she comes in fully un-sculpted, and she always picks the best times for that. Like days when I have a lesson.
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    UGH!!! I shared this link/blog on my FB page for Equine Kingdom, hope that's okay...my students will get a kick out of it.

    I keep most of mine blanketed in the winter...I don't have the time to carve horses out of muck heaps when I have 8 horses to use for lessons every day. I did this when I had just one horse....but no more....
