Little Horse....Big Personality

I spent a good deal of yesterday afternoon in the front pasture with the equines.

I mowed...they ran.

I picked up manure...they were curious!

Tell me, don't Red's nostrils look unusually large for such a small horse?

They look more like ears!
"The better to smell you with, my dear!"

Ollie, especially, was quite curious about the gator and everything in it.
While you're at it, Ollie....maybe you might want to clean the gator.

For those of you who wonder about the size of The Littles...
here is a good frame of reference for you...

He stretched and stretched and used his lips like we use our opposable thumbs...

What was so interesting in the glove compartment?

Ritz crackers!

Obviously he needed to get a little closer, so he took up position on the other side of the gator
and this (video) is what ensued....

Ahhhhh...happy Ollie!

Lastly, a garden photo...this is what happens with almost daily rain...

We get a zinnia explosion...
and the tallest sunflowers!

And that makes me smile!!

    I love those littles!! You have made my day. I thought Red was the one who got into trouble.

  5. You might need to buy stock in RITZ . . .
    Love thinking about their run in all that green . . .

  6. What a fun video of Ollie. He is just too cute.

  7. you better get ollie a drivers license because i think he is driving to the sore to get more ritz.

  8. You really should forward this video to the Ritz Crackers website. Ollie might have a future as the spokeshorse (?) for the Nabisco company!

  9. They do love those Ritz crackers! Why do the donkeys have the fly masks and not the horses? Do the flies not bother the horses?
