Beware the Ides of March

Though I do not have to worry about daggers in hands of friends, I do have fuzzy itchy ponies that want scratches. The 80 degree days have been a little too warm for their winter coats. Roscoe especially, comes inside and immediately starts rubbing on his stall guard or his walls. Dottie rubbed her butt on the wall and left a pile of hair behind. The grey boys leave "ghosty spots" when they roll. I think Rosemary and Roscoe are running around the field together (opposite sides of the fence). Both have come in covered in sweat. At night they get some relief with temperature breaks.
The warm weather and longer days allows us to make plans to get the horses on a riding schedule. With five of our own and Comrade that is not always easy. I am also trying to make a show schedule. Not all the places have posted dates, so that is still up in the air. More on shows later.

And it the spirit of being aware, here are pictures of Roscoe when he was about a month old in his "stalk and jump on you" phase. Don't let that cute face distract you :)
Here comes Trouble

Thinking... not good

And the picture I took, without knowing, when he jumped on me.
