Horses for Courses
Friends of my Bluestockings blog may recall the report of one of our more adventurous days where we were introduced to a barn owl, borrowed five turkeys, and several other out of our ordinary life happenings.
Late afternoon we went exploring the creek after a thunderstorm, arriving at a neighboring property to find the owner bottle feeding a new born foal. It was just three hours old.
I didn’t have my camera at the time (it had been too wet to take it out) but we returned next day to see how the owner and the foal had fared during the night. Suffice to say I am grateful I don’t have all night vigils in the rain, expressing milk from reluctant maiden mares!
As the property is used to breed race horses, there were foals everywhere. It was little girl heaven. 😀
