It’s bow season, or at least the hunters of the world tell me such things, since I’m not personally into the hunting thing. Someone should probably tell this to the four little Bambi’s that were grazing on the farm lane between the paddocks behind the indoor arena the other afternoon. The four pointer that was bedding down for the night in the tall grass would probably be interested to know that his days may be numbered.
Funny thing to me, that as these guys were calmly grazing, watching the horses, watching me teach in the outdoor, watching night chores go on as usual, there was a hunter off in the woods looking for them. I think when gun season begins this weekend they might be a little more timid. But for now the act like they are just part of the herd of four legged creatures that live here at the farm.
I asked my student to take a moment’s break and as I came closer I noticed that Rev is sporting a ripped bell boot on his right hind foot.
A-Rev doesn’t wear bell boots.
B-Even if he did, we wouldn’t be putting them on his hind feet
C-We don’t have ripped up, nearly totally destroyed bell boots on horses anyway- we throw them out at this point in their life.
So here’s the mystery. Where did this bell boot come from and how on earth did it get on his hind foot?
It wasn’t there yesterday btw.
I have been joking about a ghost being around the farm lately. Lots of weird little things have been happening. Things you can’t explain or find a reason for. Umm… I guess this might fall into that category.
