Horsing Around


Another wonderful thing about this time of year is 
apples.
Our orchard is full of apples...
yummy, juicy, sweet/tart apples.

Not only are they a favorite snack for us,
but also for the horses.

Yesterday I treated the horses to a little game....
bobbing for apples.....

Donnie:  "Hey Moonbeam, if we catch them we can eat them!"



Moonbeam:  "How do we catch them? 
 They keep going under water!"


Donnie:  "Accuracy, that's the key."


Moonbeam:  "How about we work together?"


Donnie: "I keep getting water up my nose!"


Moonbeam:  "I give up.  Mom......!!!
This game is stupid!"


"MmmmmMmmmm, thanks, Mom!"

PS:  I finally understand why I keep finding nests of baby mice....
Lazy kitties!

How fun for the horses. The one fruit tree that bears a lot of fruit around here is our apple tree.

That was super cute and I loved the "narration". :)

Cats certainly do love their naps, don't they?

Your horses have you right where they want you..Kitties aren't interested in mice unless they are running around and they have to chase them..just wait...Oh, I get it..they should have gotten the parents!!!
