Not since Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl has there been such indecent exposure? Blankets may be the one thing bailing twine and duct tape can’t fix.

For the Birds

We know storage in the barn is tight, but if you keep your horse’s blanket near the sweet feed, he will become a walking bird feeder. You’ve been warned.
