“Grooming is the process of transferring dirt and hair from the horse to the person grooming them.”
If you’ve gotten through the winter, congratulations, now it’s nearly spring and with it comes shedding and mud! Hooray! (I’m being sarcastic, readers.) Anyway — shedding and mud season also mean more grooming sessions for the equines. We’ve all joked that we’ve brushed enough hair off of a horse to build a second horse (and I’m pretty sure I once brushed enough hair off of my cat to practically build a kitten), so this week’s theme was horses enjoying a good ol’ grooming session. Also, I’ve been out of the horse ownership game for a couple of years and I don’t think they had vacuums to use on horses when I was a horse owner — or maybe they did and I just never saw/heard of anyone using them — so I learned something new gathering these: vacuums are used for grooming, apparently.
Keep an eye out for next week’s 24-hour photo challenge! We announce challenge subjects on Monday around the end of the day on both Instagram and Facebook.
