This picture makes me happy...
That's Buddy's rump with the white tail, and Nekoda is the spotted one in the background. But see, there in the middle, sharing Buddy's hay? Yep, Maggie Mae. Normally, we have to give Maggie her hay far away from the other two or they run her off. It's just horse hierarchy. Besides, she gets her alfalfa in pelleted form now, so any hay she eats is a bonus. It still makes me happy to see my herd bonding tighter.
This is Mr J leading Maggie to the side pasture...
I've already thrown out their hay or they'd be following me to the gate. The red building is their run-in shelter. Buddy and Nekoda stay in it when the weather dictates. Maggie is stalled at night and in inclement weather.
This is me...
...under the wool hat with ear-flaps and the insulated pants. Gotta pass those hugs around!
DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!
I just love showing how safe my horses are. When the hay isn't there, I can back Nekoda around the field by the tail!
Staying warm in my horse-hair scarf!
I have to tip-toe to peek over her!
The horses love running in the snow...
Nekoda loves running anytime, but seeing the snow fly up is extra fun!
