The Good & Bad in Spring

Well, I think I can officially say that...
And with that, come good things and bad things. Good things being:
  • It's warmer out
  • You can be outside more
  • Don't have to wear a coat
Then, there come the bad things...
  • There are storms
  • There is mud
  • High sugar grass
Muddy ponies, horses that are shedding, and their hooves grow faster, so then you have to trim more, therefore your get as covered in mud as the horses are because their feet are muddy. hehe, anyway.... The good things are very good! Even though spring is my least favorite season, it still has its good qualities. ;-)
Summer is on the horizon! Thin horsey coats, lush grass, sunny days, blue skies, shorts, and the ever present battle against high-sugar grass. As you can see, the ponies can get pretty tanky with all the grass, so hopefully this year, the track will be mostly dirt, like how it's supposed to be. We may just have to get out the weed whacker and hack at the grass in the track.
But, Eddie is good with the grass, even though he can colic more easily in the summer. :-/ So, there may be some HorseQuencher in the future for him.
Yup, spring is here, summer is on the horizon and all the challenges and joys along with it!
What are you favorite/not so favorite parts of spring and summer?

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
