Rain Games in the Pasture

While I was walking the dog, the horses came over to say hello. Given my resolution to spend more non-riding time with Milton [We Interrupt], I deliberately stopped what I was doing and stood with them for as long as they were interested.

There was yawning …

… visited …

… and trotting about. Eventually, trotting lead to galloping, which led to running off into the distance.


From time to time, Rodney would trot back over to me. I swear he checking that I was still watching.
‘Didja see me? Didja?’
‘Yes, Rodney, I saw you.’

Thank you for reading,
