    Poor Boo Boo had enough trouble with a sprinkler today. LOL Of course, he'll splash himself in the water trough and that's fine!

    Where the seasons consist of winter and road construction.


    Back when I was consistently riding my mare during my summers home from school (though I'm sure she'd still allow it without too many tantrums), I use to ride her in the outdoor when the sprinklers were going - drove the BM nuts but he still laughed at how chill she was about it. I eventually taught his OTTB to deal with it too - the first few times, he wasn't very happy about it. Back when I showed my mare and lots of short hacks were required to keep her sane, we use to hack while they watered and dragged warm-up area - drag and waterer drivers thought I was crazy but as long as I didn't interfere with them they were fine with me following behind.
