Yesterday was a day just like any other day.
Hay was cut.
Weeds were pulled.
Pigs ate the weeds.
Chickens did too.
There were eggs collected.
Beet pulp given to horses.
Oh, and a 4’x5′ mirror was taken out to the pasture for a little photography fun.
I had a certain *something* in mind…and I got that done, but not before the Mares had to find out who these interloper horses were…
“I can see you…you are very pretty. ❤ Want to be friends? You do smell a bit odd though…” ~Sable
“Who. Are. You. *snort* I. Don’t. Like. You. *snort*” ~Astrid
Watching the 2 of them was absolutely hilarious.
Makes me want to find a safer way to put the mirror out there for more photo fun.
This wasn’t the best because it was just leaned up on Cookie’s Tree, and Hubby had to hold it. Astrid kept giving it hard nudges, while snorting, telling that “Other Horse” to piss off out of her pasture.
And yet Ruby didn’t even care about it…which is why I’d love to set it up again, to see if she’d take an interest without us people around.
Anyways, once Hubby and The Kid backed the 2 fools up, I got to do what I was there to do…
We celebrated a birthday a week ago.
One pretty Girl turned 10 on the 21st. I told her she’s now an Old Lady, and she ought to be willing to wear the pink straw hat. She flipped her tail at me and farted. I take that as “I ain’t wearing that stupid hat, Mom!”
Instead, I found a different birthday hat for her to wear…but first!! The Kid and I made everyone else wear it… 😉
Daphne modeling the birthday hat.
Then came Astrid…
And Sable…who, no surprise, gave me supermodel poses without even trying.
Ruby gave us her supermodel pose too…trying to outdo Sable. 🙂
She shook that off when there were no treats for wearing it.
Finally! The Birthday Girl herself. ❤
“This is so humiliating, Mother…”
Once she shook her hat off, she snorted and trotted away. Ms Cookie was not impressed. She did come around though, once the treat bucket came out, and she was willing to sniff the Birthday Hat.
