Life From Our Back Porch
Today some friends from church came over to clean our house--such a wonderful, thoughtful thing to do! Misty had us in stitches with a dance she invented (clearly, to show off for her audience!) Let's call it "The Bowla-Bowla." It involved Misty placing one front paw on her upside-down food bowl and spinning in circles around and around it! What a fun spirit she has!
Kara's Pasture (our central pasture). I called the horses to be sure they'd come all the way to the Home Pasture.
Where that white fence tees up with this pasture (look left of the birdhouse) is where the gate is that also leads up to the barn, just not into a fenced area. Siobhan led the cows there because she knows that's the gate we humans usually use, but we wanted the cows to come through the fenced Home Pasture.
What a nice way to end things, with everybody happy: Herb got the animals where he wants them; they are tucked up in the barnyard with plenty of hay; Hero got his race; Zephyr did some herding; and I got to enjoy it all from my back porch!
