It's Spring: My Horses Seem to be Crazy
The horses, at the edge of green grass.
Please tell me everyone else's horses are acting up, too. Is it the Spring grass? Is it the mare's cycles? Ahhhhh.....!!!
Part of it is my fault, I guess. I did leave the stall door open. Oh, and it opens up into the entire pasture. Thus, all my horses were free in my barn breezeway.
Yeah, that wasn't pretty.
I can see the barn out my kitchen window, and I thought it odd so many horses heads were running INSIDE the barn. Hmmmm...is one free? Two? Three? By the time I got there, there were only three free--running and kicking at each other--vying for the grain. The two oldest were smart enough to steer clear. You could see which ones had the lowest IQ--and my horse, Cowboy, seemed to have the LOWEST.
They've been on pasture, but I kept them off today because it was raining and I don't want them to tear it up. Not good. They have grass fever and didn't want to touch their dry stuff.
To top it all off, the farrier comes tomorrow. I so wish he wouldn't. Please postpone until they get their brains back!!
