What does this look like to you?
A peaceful herd of horses, patiently waiting for lunch and snoozing in the sun? Wrong.
This is actually a horde of termites. Equine termintes. They've been chewing away on the fence surrounding/protecting the pond.
Brett is getting tired of nailing up new pieces of wood every time they chew through a piece. The other day, they finished off a couple cross pieces leaving a nice hole in the fence -- and the pond within reach of their hard hooves. Before we built the fence, Flash and Auke would go wading in the pond. The neighbors found it entertaining but the holes in the sides of the tank weren't so great.
Brett decided to replace the wood fence with a mixture of vinyl posts and metal cross rails. That should keep him busy for awhile!
