Dandelions

Remember when I said I was cultivating dandelions for the Girls? Yesterday the sun finally came out, and I got a chance, with Kid’s help, to do a photo shoot of them enjoying their yellow flowers. πŸ™‚ It also turns out that what I thought were dandelions, are indeed, sow thistles. I’m told horses won’t touch them…I think I have proof otherwise.

I only a few dandelons gorwoing here.

I only have a few dandelionsΒ  sow thistles growing here.

I grabbed a handful and started with Astrid…

"Snort, nom, nom, snort...these are good, Mom!"

“Snort, nom, nom, snort…these are good, Mom!”

Cookie had to see what Astrid had.

After this, The Kid came to help…she offered the dandys sow thistles, while I took pictures.

She gave to Sable first.

She gave to Sable first.

"Hey! I want some!"

“Hey! I want some!”

Next, Cookie got some...and yes, she actually ate them! I was stunned!

And then!! She stole Ruby's!

And then!! She stole Ruby’s!

So Ruby got a handful to herself...

So Ruby got a handful to herself…

Last bunch went to Sable...who snorted them into her mouth so no one could steal them from her. :P

She spent the next half hour with this flower bit in the corner of her mouth. :)

  3. If someone else is eating it, it must be good. That’s true of horses, dogs, cats and toddlers.

      I’m working on it! I’ve started a journal about Cookie’s journey from scared rescue to ? where ever she goes with us…I would love to turn it into a manuscript, so the world can see, meat pen horses *can* have a good life, if someone will just take that chance on them.
