The Ballerina

You should always have a camera with you - even if you are 'just feeding the horses'.  This morning was pretty routine, except maybe the weather.  We've been having several nice, sunny, warmer days with afternoon thunderstorms; pretty normal for us at this time of year.   This morning was cooler, overcast, and a tad foggy - not much.  Anyone who has had horses knows what this means to a horse.  They love this.  As I was getting their food measured out with my back to them, I heard a bit of play noise.  I glanced over my shoulder to see Jesse standing on her rear legs doing a wonderful pirouette.  She used to practice rearing for fun when she was young; at about four years she had pretty much quit of her own accord.  It was never threatening; it always just seemed a joyful expression.  So today, at 13, she showed me she still had it in her.  It's always a good reminder that even though our horses seem to get pretty sedate as they age, they have the strength to still surprise you!

I understand blog rules state that if you don't have a picture, it didn't happen, so I talked Bill into doing the honors.
