He is like a toddler on steroids…

winter hair-do — gotta love his spiky mane highlights!

* little side note

Our mare is a Curly. She is covered with curls in the cold-weather months and has a very unique “dread lock” mane and very bushy tail. The Curly breed is special because they are hypo-allergenic with their curly hair (like a poodle). Like any breed, there are of course variations. Ours get a smooth coat in the warm months (see blog header photo), but curl back up for the cold. In general the Curly horse is a gentle, calm creature.

Since this Simple Country Girl has been highly allergic to horses since her diaper days, finding horses that don’t put me into anaphylactic shock has been a huge blessing! And a relief to my system. Just because you find a Curly horse doesn’t mean an allergic person will not react. One must undergo individual testing with each horse to find one (or two or three!) that suites them.


If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
