Horse Energy

They’re ba-a-a-a-ck! Remember my horse neighbors who came to call and then left in the blink of an eye (see previous post New NEIGH-bors 2)? Well, they’re back. They got out of their pasture somehow and came right back here to my land. I guess they had good memories of their stay here.

They were galloping and galloping around (I wish I knew how to use my new video camera) driving Kelee (see previous post A Three Legged Man of the West) nuts…

… but finally settled down into some serious grazing…

…and more grazing…

… and yet even more grazing… Yeah, you get the idea. These horses are grazing machines.

Remember how friendly the brown guy was? Well, nothing has changed in his absence. In fact it’s possible that absence may well have made the heart grow fonder, as they say. He saw me coming out of Kim’s Airstream and came right over to say, “Hi…”

“… let’s just wait here by the front door and, let me see, yeah, GRAZE some more… and some more, and some more…”

… until another day has ended… and then we’ll get up and do it all again… and again…  and again…  Ah, structure. There’s nothing like it in a life, right?

And just when I thought I had this new “structure” integrated into my life, a new day dawned and the word must have gotten out because there are two MORE horses in the yard as I write this–right here in the studio windows, big as life…

And my wonder dog, Kelee, a herding dog deep down to his soul, isn’t barking at these two new interlopers… THANK YOU KELEE…

In spite of the fact they are very much in his space…

on his land…

… making themselves at home and eating HIS grass…

… he is here, at my feet, deciding to let well enough alone.

And what a great example he makes. How much better the world would be if we could all rise above our natures, find acceptance and give the other space to be.

Love to you all,
