Peace and horses


There is something peaceful
about being with my horse.

It would be a whole lot more peaceful if you
were less obsessed with bathing me.

Really, Smokey, I think
obsessed
is a little strong.

It's totally accurate.
Besides, sweat is good.
Sweat creates armor.

Armor? Sweat armor?

Besides, babies get washed all the time.
I'm growed up. I don't need baths.

Look, hon, the manure cologne is just not doing it for me.
Besides, you just turned gold again. I want to see it
shine.

I like my dark phase.
Adds to the mystery.

If only it didn't add to the flies.

Hmm. Well, there is that.

Lucky for you I have to work this week.
I won't be within a mile of the hose.

Woo hoo!

Can I get back to my point now?

Absolutely. By all means.


Thanks.

A sense of peace washes over me when...

Again with the washing!

It's. a. metaphor.

It's. a. noy. ying.

G'night, you goof ball.

Don't forget to toss me some alfalfa.
Clean horses get alfalfa, I was told.

That was cute. It's close to warm enough for baths here, Beamer is first on the list.

It is amazingly peaceful. My guy is very ripe right now. I am looking forward to the day I can bathe him!

Smokey - Listen to your mother!

I love the peace my horses bring me. Wonderful dialogue between you two. Loved it.

I hope you got to enjoy at least 15 minutes of him staying clean. That's usually more than I get.

Just how many months of flies do you get in Texas?

Rising Rainbow said...

It was warm enough to bathe here yesterday. I was so happy. I think my horses that got bathed were about as up to it as yours. LOL

Nice dialog. There is nothing that compares to the peacefulness horses emanate.
