A couple of years ago I offered to go with a friend when she was taking a couple of horses to the vet clinic. She was coming from work, I had the day off, so I went out to catch the horses and bring them into the barn for when she arrived.
It was November. It was very muddy. It was cold. I went into a field I never had to go into.
I was wearing my beloved Muck Boots. The boots that let me feel invincible and that I could slog through any footing and emerge intact on the other side.
I was wrong.
I had mud everywhere. And I mean everywhere.
Yep, I'm living the horse dream.
