working days – horses

Horses are alot like people. On a horse ranch, they need to work. That means a commute each morning. Some are leaders

And of course there’s always a joker in the bunch.

Some are content to mosey in, just like some people I work with…

Horses even have cliques, here Chief ( red ) tells Lacey and Sunday this cubicle is taken. Don’t they look mean with their ears back? A bit like my daughters when I told them “Nothing good happens after midnight.”

Just like us, these horses work every day. But don’t feel too bad, they winter running free on a huge ranch. I wonder if like me, they wish they could prance away from responsibility?

    Love the horse pics and stories on them. I love horses anyway, just never got to have one as I was raised in the city. πŸ™‚ Thanks Bill for following my blog and stories. I appreciate it.

      Joyce – I like you stories, I think you would be a person Jan and I could sit down to lunch with and have tea πŸ™‚

      • Joyce says:

        Thanks.Bill. I would certainly enjoy that ‘tea’ if ever possible. If you and Janet ever come to northern Colorado, look us up. We live in Loveland, one of the cities along the front range, where all the devastating floods hit, but we’re all on the mend, and rebuilding started. πŸ™‚ We’re 28 mi. east of Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park.

      thanks Eric — no more horses till next year. As someone who lived out in Wyoming once said — I decided it was better to live here and vacation back in Chicago.
