Today was a day off from riding for all of us. I went to the barn in the morning to do a few chores, and - you guessed it - found another "present" from Dawn in one of her water buckets. So her buckets got cleaned again . . .
Her aim seems too good - she makes a direct hit on the bucket every time - for it to be accidental. She seems to like to stand with her tail in the bucket - I know this because it sometimes is matted with frozen water (and even some manure - yuck!) when she comes back in. So with her tail in the bucket, she knows that her aim will be good . . .
I'm not sure what she's trying to say - maybe she likes her buckets cleaned every day . . .
