...in an attempt to make even her dirtwear look fashionable. Which is fine with me, because one year she made me wear coveralls all the time, and they were quite uncomfortable. Plus, my laundry is much more bulky than hers. So, our arrangement of me being naked and dirty, and her taking most of that dirt home with her each day to the laundry, works out just fine.
I put quite a lot of time and effort into my personal grooming. I've elevated it to an art form. A white horse is like a blank canvas. The artist in me just can't wait to fancy it up. As you can see, stains are important as a base. Then, I like to add a little texture of sand. Never overlook the effect of solids on your canvas. I call this one "Poopaloosa Beach"...
It's the first in a series. This one is "Shady Shoulders". Brita suggested another name for it but I thought we'd keep it clean. So to speak.
Don't worry, I'll come up with more artwork for you later.
