Horse Thieves!! Actually, THIEVING HORSES!!

Thursday, May 20, 2010
Last night Rod went over to do the nightly chore of giving the horses a coffee can of feed, filling their water containers, brushing them, talking to them and just generally checking them out to see how they're doing. Imagine his surprise when he goes to the stall where the horse feed is stored in giant garbage cans, and discovers this:

and this:

When he walked outside he found this:

and finally, this!

Evidently, the horses decided they needed a little snack! So, one of them (probably Dude because Doc has a weak lower lip from when he contracted the West Nile Virus several years ago.) reached over the stall door (Doc is demonstrating)

and unhooked this latch!

Once the door was open, they went on into the stall, teased the lids off the garbage cans and started to have quite a feast of sweet feed! Rod figures by the time their binge was over, they ate at least 15 pounds of feed! Now, that's not enough to hurt them, but it is enough to fill them up, give them a little gas and stay very busy in the field (if you know what I mean!)

When I went over to the barn tonight to take pictures of the "crime" Doc,

yes, you, Doc, was very busy making lots of noise and...well...let's just say that it's a good thing we don't have "smell-a-vision" here in the blog world!

I must say that Dude looks very satisfied and VERY FULL!!

OK, I need to get moving so I can get my Flolan mixed and switched for the night.

Thanks for checking in.
Thanks for reading.

Wow, bad horsies!! I sure hope they enjoyed themselves! Maybe you'll have to get a padlock or something on those cans for the feed!! And for a second there, I thought one of the dogs had eaten it all, and I actually gasped!! LOL!! Hugs!
