This last week, everyone on the place that uses 4 legs was to move around has been wired for sound.
The dogs woofing and cocking their heads for what seems to be no good reason.
Abbi and all her bravery barking from the well lit sidewalk into the dark and then running back inside.
Seven at least has the "pride" in her home defense to run around the house barking before she wants to come in!
The Hee-Haws patrolling the fence line and snorting like they had a snout full of pepper....
And then rushing to the top of the pasture posturing like they are 19hh and bullet proof.
And the girls were snorting, jumping, flinching, and spooking at the slightest noise.
During the week of terror, the crows even set them running!!
Which was funny, if I do say so myself.
I'm not sure where "our birds" actually live, or where they "shop" but these three will fly in carrying strange food items...drop them in the middle of the horses and eat.
Which makes me think that they've got access to some one's trash.
Where ever it comes from they bring in apples, banana peels, partially eaten steak (some one's dog's getting ripped off!), partial loaves of bread, and in this instance part of a burger...bun included.
This bird dropped it's food in the middle of the pasture from about 12 feet up, and about 10 feet away from the Drama Queen herself, Horse Girl.
Kase and I were playing in front of the barn when the "incident occurred" and that crazy red head levitated 4 foot off the ground for about 6 seconds and all the while her feet we going as fast as they could go. She hit the ground running and full speed, bumped into Fiona, nearly killed a Hee-Haw on the corner and motored off into the trees.
Everyone just kind of watched her go and stared off in the direction that she had gone.
She came out of the trees tip toeing looking for the attacker and trying to regain her composure.
It was pretty funny.
The bird, now joined by it's buddies even looked at her like she'd lost her mind.
(Seven broke up the bird lunch and I then took the food from her and threw it in the trash where no one could get it...)
Then finally on (last) Friday morning the moose showed themselves.
I couldn't see the cow, but the calf decided to snack in front of the house so I was able to get a few pictures of him!
They hung out in the neighborhood for a few days, and are gone now.
So the drama is gone.
For now! (0:
