A Few Of My Least Favorite Things

Mar 5, 2021 - 3:02 PM

Winter got you down? Here’s a song for you, to be sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things.”

Eight layers of barn clothes and useless wet mittens
The idiot barn cat decides to have kittens
Blizzards on horse farms, the joy that they bring
These are a few of my least favorite things.

Crap-covered ponies and ice-covered pasture
Results in a face-plant; it could be a fracture
Phone calls to jerk-friends who have indoor rings
These are a few of my least favorite things.

Employees are no shows as soon as the schools close
Wielding an ax because all of your troughs froze
Machines that won’t start, is that mare col-ick-ing?
These are a few of my least favorite things.

The mare is just hangry; you’re late with her bran-mash
Your life has become just a winter-long car crash
That groundhog’s a liar; when will it be spring?
These are a few of my least favorite things.

Hooves with snowballs
Frozen feed bags
That pony don’t care if you’re sad.

Regardless of weather they’ll need calories
There’s no point in feeling bad
(about not staying in college).

Alice Peirce was raised as a self-described “feral horse farm child” in Howard County, Maryland. She’s made efforts to leave the horse world over the years but always comes back and has worked for a number of people in various disciplines. Currently, she manages a farm in Butler, Maryland, and hunts with the Green Spring Valley Hounds. She’s also responsible for foaling and raising the Twitter sensation foal who can’t roll “Cyrus The Virus.” #rollcyrusroll!  Read all of Alice’s blogs.
