Doc's Diatribe: Snow



It makes no sense to me
Why people call this pretty.
I think snow sucks.

It's fills my hooves with snowballs.
And although that makes me tall,
It's devilish to walk on,
slippery and all. 

It turns my paddock to slurpy goop
with chunks of ice and frozen poop.
It makes it hard to find the grass.
Treacherous to walk on, you can fall on your...

Eeeee-yuck!

    Do they make snow booties for horses (like they do for dogs?). I can't imagine how annoying it would be to pick frozen ice out of their hooves! (I can't even believe it, but I've NEVER ridden in the snow before!)

  4. It is a big pain, Doc, but it sure is pretty. Only now our pretty snow is turning into chocolate pudding.

  5. I echo those same sentiments - hate snow. And we're due for some this weekend here in NJ. Happy to have just discovered your blog!

  6. Doc, you need to live in SC Lowcountry, where snow is a very, very rare event!

  10. Aw, Doc, I'm sorry you don't like it. I like it fine, now that I'm retired and don't have to drive in it.
