We’ve been having a run of mild winter days. For the horses, relaxing days. Quiet days, with only one tour a day. Summer is fun with all that luscious green grass and three times a day when tours of carrot-toting humans come to let the horses get a good look at them and, confined in the runs that are there to fence the humans in, to do their best to entertain the horses (I often wonder if this is what a tour is all about from their perspective). Yes, summer is good. But mild winter days bring pleasures, too.

Like just taking life easy.

And watching the humans work. Humans doing maintenance, delivering lunch, delivering hay, driving around in those day-glow Kubota things doing all those peculiar things humans do.

Like rummaging through all that good hay they bring for the best stuff, the rich, fine hay dust at the bottom.

Well, and, yes, carrots…

Like napping with your friends.

And then napping a little bit more.
