why I love snowsoles

My ride with Shahina today didn’t exactly go as planned.  

The ground was so extraordinarily awful for a horse without snowsoles so we ended up turning back almost immediately. I was smart enough to bring a hoof pick since her feet filled up with snow and ice almost every other step. 

It took us ages to get back to the stable door, not only because Shahina was more interested in eating some sticks/plants she found instead of letting me clean out her feet a million times over and over again. She did not approve at all of my silly human priorities and made that very clear. Princesses know best I guess. 👑

But, for some reason I figured it might be better in the paddock. Which it was not.

So it was a rather disappointed mare and a very tiered rider that eventually gave up and went inside tonight. 

We are lucky that we don’t need to wait too long for winter shoes though since our farrier is coming on Wednesday evening. Thank goodness. 🙏

Until then I will be wiser than today and focus on riding Popgun and Arshaq instead.

  1. Det där känner jag igen allt för väl. Att hästarna får sådana snökokor under hovarna så man blir livrädd för att de ska bryta benen. Som boende i Skåne med snö väldigt sällan blev det aldrig så att vi satte på snösulor. Men har man mycket snö så är det nog ett måste.

    1. Ja det är otroligt läskigt och skillnaden är som natt och dag med eller utan snösulorna. I Uppsala är det lite olika hur mycket snö vi får men det är tillräckligt att man måste ha det, alternativt att man tar av skorna antar jag. Finns massor med knep med diverse oljor och sånt som vissa smörjer med istället men inget som funkat för oss än. Det skulle vara bra annars om det fanns något sådant. ❄️
