Is It DInner Yet?
When we moved here, I taught Silk and Siete to go to their stalls before they would get their food. I didn’t want them to crowd up against the corral gate or make it difficult for anyone else in my family to go in and feed them.
So, as soon as they see me with the feed buckets, they rush to their assigned spots. I came out this evening, and the horses had switched stalls. Silk nickered loudly, and they trotted out like two dancing girls. They kind of do-see-do’ed in the corral as they traded places. I laughed so hard.
They stood with their heads poking out. “What’s for dinner, Mom?” Seeing their beautiful faces looking expectantly at me always reassures me that all is right in the world.
