Someone isn’t happy about the cooler weather! My barn hosted a schooling show for our students over the weekend, and I found myself bundled up in a parka with a winter hat and gloves while binge-drinking hot cocoa as I cheered my students on. Nothing like a little Egg & Spoon on a brisk fall morning to wake you up!

Video of the Day: We all love silly horse tricks, whether it’s a horse dancing to “All About That Bass“ or making fart noises with its mouth. My new favorite? A horse that sticks its tongue out for carrots.
