Foamy Ride


I think I'm keeping it, but I had the one person that was at the barn with me today snap this real quick.  Not the greatest picture, but she was in a hurry, and I've talked before about how I rarely see other people at my barn (small barn and all of the boarders/lessoners are on different schedules).  That's the angle of the sun making it look crooked.

So much foam, equally on both sides, for our ride today.  And it's not partially induced by white clover slobbers anymore. 

More foam.  Aimee, you have me thinking about whether or not I could cut the strings off on these bonnet based on how they don't move and how much fabric I have under the bridle.  Hmmm...

Tired.



Sweet hair, little buddy.

    1. I know, it's killing me. I wish they had removable liners.

  2. I cut the strings off all my bonnets and I've never had them slip out from underneath the bridle. Strings drive me nuts.

    1. Okay, I'm going to do it. They look especially terrible with Micklems anyway.

    1. Well if the bringer of bonnets says so, then it will be done.

  7. Cut the strings! Klein's fly bonnet didn't even come with any and it has never moved an inch.

    1. Wow, I didn't even know people did that until yesterday, and it seems that I am late to the string cutting party! Doing it tonight!

  8. Rory's bonnet has velcro tabs on the headstall instead of a string tie. It's great!
