Bored Horse

It's cooler today, thankfully. And it's been raining. Weather much more conducive to Labrador healing than baking heat and a toasted boat. Out on our afternoon bimble, I was reminded that it's often small things that give the greatest pleasures.

He'd spotted us coming, and made a beeline for the gate, where we could all say "hello" to each other. He sniffed Sumo. Sumo sniffed him. And I got to stroke, scratch and fuss him for 5 minutes before he got bored and wandered off to chew some nettles. It was the closest I've ever been to a horse. And to feel his breath on my hands was something special.
