When I got home, I didn't even go in the house. I made a beeline for the pasture.
No I do not know why. I just did.
Trax was grazing on the hillside, Danny was down lower and whuffled to me as soon as he saw me, I went over and scratched his itchy back for him and got off more winter hairs. His whuffle is how he says hello. He is the only horse I have that makes that sound. The other nicker once in a while at feeding time, but Danny whuffles every time he sees me.
Trax headed down towards us, but before I could even walk up to him, here comes Sassy from around one of the old barns. She was supposed to be in her pen. That must be the reason I was "supposed" to go home. She had already had a full breakfast of haycubes, which no one gets if they are getting out on the pasture. She obviously had already stuffed herself, her belly was looking pretty full. So much to her dismay she was caught and put back in her pen. With her lameness issues already I always worry about laminitis with her.
Naturally Killian was quite upset that his mare was out there with those other boy horses. He told her so too, by pinning his ears and making ugly faces at her as I put her away. She just flicked her tail at him. Afterwards I spent a little time with each horse.
As I was headed out to leave I noticed that Danny was, once again trying to tell me something.
|I WANT those grasses over there! Please come open the gate for me.|
He spent the next five minutes nodding his head up and down to tell me that I needed to get my butt over there an open his gate.
|Yes yes yes|
"Sorry bud not right now"
|Yes yes yes|
"Danny there is no water in there and I don't have time to get any for you"
|You must come open the gate- you cannot resist my cuteness|
"It is hard I admit, but I must go back to work"
|Work smork, you get over here right now and open this gate!|
|Don't make me get ugly about it|
|Trax says" MmmmmmGrasses"|
Danny "Heavy sigh...this isn't working"
|Hey Lady!!!! Don't leave, come open the gate!|
I would have loved to just stay there with them, and let him into his secret garden. But alas, someone has to earn a paycheck around here and it isn't going to be any of those four legged family members!
