I really have not been spending enough time with the horses. But I did get a ride in with Scout tonight. He's still a good boy. He did a little bolt when we spooked an owl out of the trees but it was understandable. I'm just glad he didn't step in one of the holes we were standing right next to. Other than that it was a great ride, with progress made.

Huck says, "Yay! I found my kid!"
Huckleberry and Blue are playing a game right now that involves Huck flaunting a bone and Blue racing back and forth and pouncing. It's pretty cute. They just ran all the way across the house together, Blue going "pit-pat-pit-pat-pit-pat" and Huck going "thumpa-thumpa-thumpa." I'd like Blue to go to sleep so I can go feed without his help. But at least they're being entertaining while they're being inconvenient.

Speaking of feeding horses, what times of day do you feed? Do you keep on a strict schedule or are you more lax about it? Why?

I don't keep on a schedule but I do my very best to space their feedings 12 hours apart.

no schedule here. I like them to be patient and not demand to be fed at a certain time. Sometimes they wait at their feed spots, other times they just wait until I come out to come up. During the summer I feed more spaced out and winter is closer together since it gets dark earlier.

8 am and anytime between 4:30 and 7:00ish. And it all changes if they have been out in the pasture all day and all night...
