After a rather long day at work I was met at the stable by a loud whinny from Grumpy. If that doesn’t make you smile as a horse lover, then little will.
As I had one hour of sleep last night, he got a day off today. I’ll also make the excuse that this weather is a tad bit to warm for a Viking like me at the moment. Grumpy on the other hand seems to enjoy it loads and is becoming more awake by the day.
After having a walk in the walker and a shower I turned him out on the land. It took him exactly ten minutes before he wanted to come in again because of all the flies. So tomorrow I’m heading for the store for a flying mask. I’ve never had this issue before now, but there is so many flies at the moment it’s almost impossible not to get one.
I also must admit that the grumpy, Grumpy is gone. The “old” man is enjoying life and I rarely see him put his ears in his neck anymore. He is not a super fan of the mare beside him, but for the rest he says hello to everyone and wants to cuddle. It’s interesting to see how a change of scenery can change a horse so much. Today I put a bucket of carrots and apple juice/water outside and as he ate, a horse came close by. Before this would mean war and he would attack, but now he couldn’t care less and keeps eating.
Makes a horsemommy heart very happy.
