I didn't have time to eat lunch or grab one the other day so when I was done I ran to subway in town (our only fast food in this little hick town) and headed out to see Indigo.
I went into her part of the barnyard. She must have been around back the machine shed because I didn't get a neigh upon climbing over the gate.
So I wandered over and sat on the old silo foundation. I was contently munching my sub when I hear sniff...sniff...sniff...sniiiiiiiffffff. I turn to see this.
You know it's polite to share
Note how her mouth is half open. She was trying to seduce me to get some of that sub with a smile. Seduced by the cuteness!
She wouldn't have any of my sub but boy was she sure sniffing it like crazy. I am sitting there in the wind with a horse smelling my sub. I am trying at the same time to eat said sub. Oh my piggy girl don't you worry your little spotted butt. I could never forget you!
So she got a nice juicy apple, but not after I made her follow me around the old silo foundation. Everyone thinks it's hilarious that she follows me on top of the cement like this considering she was the horse when I did trail class that totally refused to walk over the wooden bridge....but she would back over it hahaha! The judges comments were always something along the lines of "interesting tactic on the bridge". Silly neigh.
Notice she follows me around a few times on the ground then decides it's a good idea to step up and follow me. She does a mean bevis and butthead "ehehehehehehhehe" laugh impression at me the whole time. You can barely hear it. I think it's the cutest thing ever! Her little nostrils go all aflutter with happy "You brought me food!" nickers.
Those cats were soaking up the sun that day. Also trying to get me to fork over some more food for them. The fluffy one in the beginning meowing it's head off is Fluffers, the only cat in the barn with a name. She is the softest, nicest cat ever. I wish I could make her into a house cat or find someone that want's a house cat like her. She would make some old lady very, very happy.
The other is a B&W that cracks me up. When he was a kitten he would constantly get into places and get stuck and when I rescued him he would hiss and spit his head off. Eventually he got over it and is usually the first or second cat (next to fluffers AKA: queen maow) to gallop over and receive pets or treats. Yes I treat my barn cats. It keeps them friendly and ensures I get no more grabbed eyebrows As you can see mr.B&W is lying next to where I am sitting in the sun on the silo foundation.
The other in the background is fluffers oldest daughter and the B&W's mom.
That silo. Well it was wooden. About oh....30ish years ago just after it had been packed with corn silage it fell over. Surprisingly because of how it fell the silage was all able to be used and did not mold or spoil. All that is left is the foundation which Indigo wanders around on regularly.
My pretty girl. I just love her mane. I remember the first time I ever seen her the first thing I said was "I want to braid her mane!"
I need someone to participate in my pay it forward.
Who doesn't like to recieve free things right? Even if you have done it before it's ok.
I'll leave you with something to think about:
The difficulty lies, not in new ideas, but in escaping the old ones- Unknonwn
