I like to carry horse treats in my car and give one or two to whatever horse is hanging around the driveway when I come home. Last night a couple moseyed over for treats. When I fed last night I, as is my habit, when the carrot bag is almost empty I share the remainder amongst the crew as I toss hay. Better in the horse than tossed out in the trash in a day or so. I always bring home a fresh bag the next day and tonight was no exception. As I closed the gate I was spotted from the next pasture and the Kentucky Derby was on. They were racing to be the first to the fence for a cold fresh carrot. I guess they have me figured out so I gave each horse two. Of course after I parked the car, Trooper was hanging around the gate by the house and I just couldn’t help my self but give him a couple more. They have me figured out.

I've learned that no amount of money can substitute for class.

I missed most of it as they caught me by surprise.  I turned around as they skidded to a stop at the fence.  Pam watched from the front porch and said it was spectacular.

I called them in from the BE pasture today.  It lacked some of the exuberance of yesterday but here they come.  They sure are hard to catch.
