It's been pleasantly warm here the last couple days. After almost a week of overcast we finally got some sunshine yesterday and today. It started to cool down and get windy around 3 pm so I thought yay, an opportunity to get the horses running around and get some pictures.
I let Indigo out, who normally takes the second barnyard gate at a trot and breaks into a canter or gallop by the end of the silo's. She walked out and started eating.
How boring. A hundred more pictures of my horse eating.
Then a whole flock of pigeons take flight from the empty silo and I am suddenly standing in the middle of a stampede.
Lead by Indigo, followed by Sheba, Sebastian then Stormy and finally Suzy bringing up the rear with that beautiful extended trot.
After they tore around for a bit it was time to roll in the sticky dirt the sun had created today.
A roll is only as good as the amount of mud you have covered yourself in.
Old farmers used to predict a horses price by how many times it would roll completely over.
See theres a pattern here, or rather more of a chain reaction.
Then Suzy. I think she is enjoying it a bit shes got her lips curled, saying "oooh that's the spot"
Last but not least, Stormy who had to express her enthusiasm for a good roll afterwards.
Not very lady like there.
Indigo did not roll, she was more interested in stretching her legs and eating bits of grass and stuff. When I called them in for dinner she was still clean.
Good white horse, good.
