The shovel had been laying up against the arena fence for a few days this past, wet week, making it irresistible to the local snails. There were more snails than this photo shows but you get the idea - I had to set them free before I could continue on with the chores. Not sure what was so darned attractive about a shovel handle, but there you have it.
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
