Photo Challenge: 26 Muddy Horses (Consolation Round)

We had so many muddy horses show up for this week’s photo challenge that we had to split them into two rounds. Here are a few muddy buddies for your commiserating pleasure.

A lot of people look forward to spring: the weather gradually gets warmer, days gradually get longer, bulbs start sprouting and birds start singing and everything is magical happiness after a long winter. Except none of this is true — everything just gets really, really muddy.

Case in point: these 26 horses, who clearly are making the most of a thaw.

I only have HALF a muddy horse! Lol! He never goes all the way over. (Photo credit Chresta Haygood)
