Things You Need to Know About Owning a Horse
I recently spent some time at home in Nebraska visiting my family there.
While there, I was able to spend some time with my brother and his horses.
As a child, I was always a little “horse crazy”, but my life led me in a different direction and it is my brother and sister-in-law that ended up owning a horse in our family, not only one but multiple!
They now own four horses, along with six cats (many of them rescues from the horse barn) and a Golden Retriever named Tucker.
Obviously, like all of us, my brother and sister-in-law are animal lovers.
Anyway, while in Nebraska, I spent time riding but also helped groom the horses.
At the time, they were shedding out their hairy winter coat and had a lot of loose hair to brush out, along with the mud and dirt they picked up in their turn-outs.
I also helped clean horse stalls, which surprisingly is kind of like cleaning a huge litter box, except instead of a kitty scoop and plastic bag, a rake and wheelbarrow are necessary to do the job.
