This really made me laugh because we see turtles laying eggs all the time when riding. Maybe because they are so common, my horses never react to them. Maybe they just haven’t noticed that the turtles actually move!
Just a couple of weeks ago a beautiful painted turtle was laying her eggs in the dressage arena where I keep my horses. We circled it many times and I mentally marked the spot where the eggs are buried, hoping that some day I’ll see the little ones making the long trip to the pond down the hill.
