Yes, a very strange post for the blog. Plus, two posts in a day! I was PLAYING with the horses (I am now replacing "working" with "playing") late this afternoon. They were in an area of my 14 acres that they haven't been in awhile. Low and behold, a small patch of green grass. Right now, the pastures are brown, except for some wild onions growing here and there. I happened to look over to the horses in this new area (where I ride them) and noticed Gator (the horse in the photo) with his mouth to the ground, patiently taking precision cutting of the small green growth. Mind you, my horses are fed twice a day. As my knee surgeon wrote on my
medical folder "she is well nourished." Thank you, Dr.... My horses are too. But, to have a wee bit of green, Gator had his head to
the ground to precisely cut just a taste... SO AMAZING!
PHOTO: I love the teeth snipping the green growth. I love the pink in his nostril. I love his color which is called BAY in the horse world. I also love his beard below his chin for the winter. I am not sure if you have ever felt a horse under his chin area, but it is the softest part in the world...
