I remembered to take my camera to the (old) barn this morning. The horses were close to the barn, as our pastures are (finally!) getting mowed. The mares were grouped together - it still strikes me as odd not to see Maisie with the others:
The three geldings who were out (Scout and Joe's owner hadn't come to the barn yet) were also grazing together - I like how all the tails are flicking in unison:
A killdeer is nesting in the gelding's pasture - she (or he) was irate when I took a picture and stood up off the nest - if you look closely just behind the legs you might see the speckled eggs:
The geldings all stepped to the left (Noble wears a SuperMask II, which I find to be OK but not excellent - the fit is so-so and not very close and the mesh is very coarse which could make it hard to see through).
Fred wanted a closer look at what I was doing - he seems to have made a full recovery from his episode of choke:
Fritz was friendly:
So, nose shot!
Misty is, shall we say, a bit rotund - she's Impressive-bred and a HYPP carrier, so that accounts for some of the bulk, but the richness of our grass is a contributor, too. I worry about her weight, as she also has the tiny little feet that some halter-bred QHs unfortunately have.
Dawn is modeling her Crusader fly mask - I've been very satisfied with this mask - it fits well with good eye clearance, and the ears, forelock hole and long nose are all great features - Dawn has always tended to get flies and gnats in her ears and up her nose and the mask helps with that.
I'm hoping to get in a ride on Maisie (still only walking for me, alas) later this morning. Enjoy your Sunday!
