Splendor is in the Grass

Our little herd of three horses got an hour on the new grass pasture today. I've been weaning them onto the new spring grass as to not let them have too much sugar and risk the chance of colic. They love it and just bury their heads down there and munch! Now that they're up to an hour they will be able to go out for maybe a half day in the next few. When I tried to get them back through the gate to their regular "dirt" pasture I had to get behind them and encourage them with a couple snaps of the whip. Satire, the little arab, was the last to give up and go on through! A day at the barn with the horses is the best medicine , psychologically speaking, you can have. Of course, I guess you have to be a horse person. My sister wouldn't think that was very relaxing! Even if I don't ride, just being around the horses or grooming them does something for my inner me.


  1. What lovely, peaceful photos! I just love them!

  2. Don't you love to sit and watch animals in your pasture? We have miniature donkeys and they get too fat on all that sweet grass. We had to put one of our jacks and a gelding on a diet and they are not happy.
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Hi Shirley. Hope you don't mind...I signed up as a follower of your blog. Beautiful horses. I hope you get to keep them with you one day soon. Feel free to come over and view my blog. Enjoyed reading through yours.

  4. Hi! I don't know if you have a TARGET nearby, but up front, in their seasonal items I saw some cushions for regular lawn chairs from $7-20 each! They were bright and cheerful colors, too. I just thought I'd let you know so you could check it out because I thought that was very reasonable compared to other seat cushions I've seen lately!
    PS: I'm enjoying peeking at your blog for the first time!
