The moon was so bright last night that it looked like someone was shining a floodlight down on the pasture. Our neighbor’s fire alarm in her barn went off twice, rattling everyone’s windows and nerves. My dear husband headed out to our barn to check on how the girls were reacting to the weird loud noise. They were fine. Silk was already sprawled out asleep in the pine shavings.
This morning, that moon was still hanging around when I went out to feed. It’s icy, and there are little frozen moon craters where the horses’ hooves have torn up the ground. The horses are smart enough to know that it hurts to run around, so they stood around filling their fat bellies.
Siete is so bored. She just pulled the bungie cord off the water bucket and knocked it across the corral. It reminds me of my daughter when she’s stuck at home with nothing to do.
