Our area is known for having a high content of fructose in our spring grass. The grass is green. The grass is lush. The grass looks beautiful. But looks are deceiving. The grass is hot and it can be fatal to turn your horses out on it.
So usually this time of year our horses are all in the gravel pen, unhappy and bored with their surroundings.
The horses can't keep up with the growth and I've had to abandon my plan before someone gets sick or worse. I've told my horses, "Heh, I tried - but everybody out of the pool and into the paddock."
As you can see, they are not pleased. As I work in my office these days, this is what I usually see outside my window. Glad I've got a stash of carrots in my little fridge out here! :)
