With this chilly weather I figured everyone would enjoy seeing some pretty flowers. It was chilly today, cloudy, and windy. Not a day that drew you outside. No sir-ree! Tonight is supposed to get to 31 and I hope maybe that'll be the end of the below freezing weather for this spring, but who knows? These pictures were taken last year. I just love the pretty blooms on the sage.

We had a neighbor who raised minature ponies. He sold the farm and moved. Just recently the new owners got a white horse. I'm so glad they got me something pretty to look at when I look up that way, and one of my favorite animals too! One of my other neighbors came by and we walked up to see the horse. It was on the other side of the field. I told her that I might be able to get it to come to us. I neighed like a horse and my neighbor looked at me like I had 3 heads! The horse tossed up his head and came galloping over to where we were and he neighed back! She said, "Well, I'll declare Rachel. You can talk to a horse!!"

I can't really talk to a horse since I have no idea what he said!

You said have just said that you could talk to horses. You should have neighed back. And then told your friends all he wanted to do was spread some gossip.

How funny about the horse. Way to cute. I miss seeing the flowers. We have desert flowers but not the green grass that goes with them.

Take care xx

The horse said, "What did you call me over here for? Do you have an apple for me or not...if not, I'm going back to the other side of the field."

And I suppose that's why he didn't let you take his picture. hehehe

I was laughing at remembering Pea's comment about Frances the Talking Mule! Did you reward the horse for coming over? Where's the picture??
