Love and Scratches and Sweet Feed

For the first time in nearly 4 years I'm back to feeding horses.
I was asked by the barn owner if I wanted to feed once a day, 2-3 times a week.
Of course I couldn't say no. Now I get to give love and scratches and sweet feed to all the horses in the barn and they are all so nice. The top horse is Bo.

Dayo grazing. You should see this thoroughbred move. Takes my breath away.
Someday I'll get it on the camera.

Faust, dirty but still looking stunning.

Lily above, Sophie and her muzzled mother below.

Twister the POA (Pony of the Americas).
He's the sweetest pony you will ever meet.
Zoe loves to groom him and ride him out to his pasture.

Rosie and her neigh-bor V.
 They are in love.

"Hey Rosie, can I play with your ball?"

Lucky you ! I can't think of anything better! I took care of a friends thoroughbreds and foals and was totally smitten. I miss that job so much!


What could be more wonderful than a world full of horses.

What a sweet barn you have there, and feeders are very, very popular at the barn--so you will be welcomed heartily, I'm sure! Love to see your horse-life-pictures!
