Tonight when I went to feed the horses a beautiful double rainbow hovered over the barn. I looked for the pot of gold — always a useful thing to have with horses around — but the only thing framed by the light was them.
One of the things I love about taking care of the horses myself is that it gets me outside and connected to them. Today I was busy from the moment I woke up to the time I got home — about a 12 hour span — but twice during the day I spent a few minutes with Zelda, Curly and Freedom. I heard their galloping hooves responding to my whistle for meals, enjoyed some appreciative nickers, and breathed in the heat of the morning and the coolness after the rain.
