"Nom Nom Nom!" Winter Munchies
Is there anything more pleasant than feeding horses something they love? Slurp, chomp, nom nom, and the eyes half closing with delight. It doesn't cost much, it doesn't take much time, it gives a terrific sense of satisfaction, and it makes horsey happy. What more could we ask?
Today John wore Montana's halter as he munched in the winter sun, which always makes his coat glow like golden bunny fur. It was 13 degrees F. and so, pretty pleasant for short periods of time. Some of the barn girls with zero % body fat were hanging out all day out there so, that baffles me. I have ermmm a bit more body fat and still get too cold.
Here's Montana munching his beet pulp & supplements, and my photo cut off one of his ears but they are both still there:
And here he is yearning towards his mint:
And Johnnie wishing he could have one more mint:
Then when I had done my feeding 'chore', the moon came up like a giant tangerine:
I could not capture the true color; it was eerie and enormous:
And I will close with a photo of Montana's cute front feet, which he poses just like this when he is eating:
What a sweetie!!!!
