Juanita and I drove by the horses yesterday. From across the pasture Jesse looked up when I hollered "TREATS!" She started the 1/4 mile trip across the pasture at a trot. Then Washoe noticed what was happening, and he came to us at a long trot. Then Ida's sorrel "Peanut"spotted us and came at a dead run. Peanut by two lengths.
Ranger brought up the rear at a dead mosey.
Our guys and Peanut enjoyed some bread crusts and dried apple skins.
When we got into the car to leave, Jesse hung her head over fence and asked "What? Is that all? Let's DO something!"
Poor girl is ready for a job, it's been a while. The rest of them were just snuffling around for missed crusts and dried apple peals when we drove off. Good to see them again, even if it was just for a minute.
I miss those horses and can't wait to get them back home.
Oh yeah, and Juanita had her second hip replaced yesterday and is in the hospital. She seems okay.
