In horse lingo, the term babysitter refers to a good-natured horse. A horse specializing in being kind and protective of an inexperienced rider. The term bomb-proof is sometimes used interchangeably with babysitter.
Babysitter describes my ‘best old-lady horse in the world’, Rodney.
He hasn’t been babysitting me lately. Seems he has a new batch of children.
This nest is one of three nests near his stall. The other two are directly outside his stall door up in the eaves of his metal barn.
I hear quite a symphony of bird sounds at feeding time. These little birds have lifted my spirits. Something to keep me from being morbidly obsessed with this dreary drought. The birds have a steady source of water when they are near the horses.
Last evening was terribly hot and windy at the barn, but I had fun looking at the babies.
Seems a certain sidekick found an activity to keep her mind off the drought.
Ahhhh, the sights and smells of a freshly-dug rabbit hole.
Hope your week is shaping up to be a great one.
Me? Choose either one of the following faces.
Led-by-the-still-waters love to all.
