Dinner Dance

On Memorial Day, Brett and I had dinner on the viewing stand.  We barbequed hamburgers, nibbled on chips, drank a bottle of wine and watched the horses do their dinner dance.  I love the evening light in the pasture so I took pictures of them as they moved from feed bin to feed bin.  We divide the hay between four bins plus the run-in shed.  They rotate from station to station, pairing up.  The donkeys hang together, Flash and Kalvin are inseparable, and Winston and Jackson have a love/hate thing going on.  Winston made Jackson go with him to get a drink of water at the pond (herded him down there) but in the next minute, chased him away from a particular bin.  Here's the dance -- or musical chairs.

















Went to the dr for my toes yesterday.  I couldn't take the pain anymore.  He sent me for x-rays -- second toe is very broken and there is extensive ligament damage in the others.  I must say Flash was thorough when he kicked me/Winston.  I have an appt with a specialist Thursday afternoon.

  7. Lovely photos and you are right the light is very nice and how cool to be able to bbq and eat and see such lovely creatures. As for toes, now you know for sure and they are a bugger to heal. Foot injuries be they human or animal are some of the worst and are the slowest to heal. Take it very easy and don't rush the healing process. (Hard to do I know personally).
