1. It’s not too late to whip up a last minute Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day. Try making a calorie friendly one that is packed with spinach like this one from Real Food Real Deals.

2. Warmer temperatures and melting snow is a good thing, but it also means mud! Check the status of your barn boots and treat yourself to a new pair if necessary.

These kid’s boots by Joules are adorable! Shop for them at Alex and Alexa 

3. Speaking of mud, are you keeping your horses legs clean and dry (as possible) to avoid mud fever and thrush this time of year? Do a light clipping on your horse’s legs and make sure your clippers are ready for spring.
