Unicorn

Connor looked...weird...from a distance tonight.


"Did I put his mane in braids on Sunday and not remember it?  Where is his forelock?"

As I got closer, I realized that my pony had decided to become a unicorn.  With some help from Mother Nature.

Hey mom!


Closer...

Closer still...
I've never seen anything like that before.  It was so-lid.  Now I am not one to judge Connor's life choices, if he'd rather be a unicorn that's his business, but the burrs couldn't stay.  So I got to work!  Not that I mind an excuse to stand with my horse's head resting quietly against my stomach for a half-hour.  Yes, it took that long.

Halfway there...

Almost...
I forgot to take the predictable final photo in this series, but rest assured, all the burrs are gone - from his forelock, and his mane and tail as well!

Now to figure out where he found a burr bush like this in his drylot...

    1. I thought about you on this one, Shy seems to be the burr queen, at least at your last place anyway. Haven't seen any burr pictures since she moved in with the draft guys!

    2. Haha! She was! But there are no woods at this place to get burrs in. Conner has her beat though, she was never that burred up! :)

  4. Haha. I can't wait for Tarra to see this. Tolo had the same thing happen years ago. Tarra freaked out and cut his forelock off! He looked like a little kid whos mom cut his bangs too short. Good luck finding where he got in to them.

    1. Hahaha, I laughed so hard at this because it really did cross my mind when I first saw it! I used about a gallon of Showsheen on them to make them really slippery and it still took a while, but was at least possible.
