Several happy appys



For those of you that don't know the DOR has a total of seven horses, four of us are appys. Appaloosas are her favorite breed of horses, I think she gets that love from her grandfather. Six of us are geldings, she thinks we are less trouble than hormonal mares.




We are all doing the happy dance because the heat has finally broke. We had reasonable temperatures today. It was nice because the flies were less sticky. Poor Freedom was beginning to look like a Morris Dancer with all of the stomping around he was doing to get rid of the pesky things.

The downside, or maybe it isn't, is that there are thunder storm warnings. That means wind, rain, thunder, and lightening...I think I will be okay. The bad part is that the wind makes my bag rattle.



I do need to brag though. I walked slowly out of the paddock this morning, through a narrow opening (the DOR was playing the squeeze game), right past the pesky bag with NO marbles in my nose. That got a bunch of pats and atta boys from the DOR, she was really happy.
I hope tomorrow's weather is as grand as today's turned out to be.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Yo Cactus! No wonder DOR keeps you around! You are hilarious! I do agree with DOR about the mares, but you may miss the social life, eh?
Your 'comrades' here didn't get much of a break from the heat until about 7 pm when they got caught in a horrendous dust storm~then lighting~then welcomed rain!
