Siesta in the Sun
Silk had a lovely siesta in the sun today. I came out of the house to find her stretched out on the ground, and all she did was wiggle her ears when I spoke to her. It was very unusual for her to be so relaxed and not get up as soon as she saw me. I stood with Siete and scratched her neck for a long while as Silk continued to nap. Finally, Silk tucked her legs under and waited for me to come over and rub her back.
It was such a contrast to yesterday, when the horses had been running around like crazy. Silk was very agitated about something, and there was nothing I could do to make her comfy. I finally ended up bringing her into her stall and closing the back window so she would calm down and feel safe. Who knows whether they felt the presence of some animal in the woods behind us. Today, whatever it was, it had gone on its way.
