Bobbing for Fish Pellets

Chili loves the little fish pellets. I think she just accidentally found out she liked them. Of course, she is willing to try anything.

She must think they are worth it, because she doesn't seem to mind bobbing for them.

Oops. Fell in; of course, I missed the opportunity to take her picture. Gotta wallow and try to dry off.

Just paw these over a little closer and then eat them.

Back to bobbing.
Yesterday we took the visiting horses home. Oh yea, they didn't think that was a good idea at the time. But, everything is back to normal today.

Visiting Horses

My brother brought his horses down to my place because he was going on a fishing trip and I still had rye grass that was getting tall and needed eaten. This was last Tuesday that we brought them down. (I'm a little behind)
In this first picture we had just turned them loose in the pasture, going through a gate at the road. Poppet and Suki are at the barn and don't know they are here.

Johnny and I have been standing in my yard calling Poppet; they are on their way.

And here we go, round and round.

It just looks like Johnny's three are chasing mine off. That isn't it, but I don't know why this is going on. I knew there would be trouble for a few days; and it was. The light colored one thought she wanted to run the show. Poppet said NO! It was the weirdest thing, Poppet wouldn't let them get close to Suki or Suki close to them.

Finally around Saturday they settled down. In fact now, Baby, the light colored one, wants to be friends with Poppet. Poppet just looks at her like, "I'll think about it."
Which means that when we take his horses home in a couple of days, they will all be neighing and having a fit because they are losing their best friend.
