On my way to the suggested coffee place, I run across a small herd of ponies. At first, they're unsure of what to think of me and the iron beast revving strange noise. As I turn off the engine, they continue to eat the frozen grass. I approach slowly. It seems that they are free to roam the property as they like and fend for themselves.
There is something in horse's eyes. I can almost see what he's thinking. Did you ever notice how seldom they turn their head to look at you with the other eye? I pet this fellow. He is not afraid. He could surely use a stable and a pair of loving hands to clean him up. Hopefully, they are not just left like this through the winter.
I was once bitten by a pony. I was twelve and trying to saddle up. As I raised my arms, the mare used her opportunity to pinch me to the left side of my body. That did hurt. There was no blood but a blue circle stayed for weeks. Apparently, it was a peaceful animal. No idea what did I do wrong but I probably deserved it for some reason or another. The pony's hoes look good.
Let' whisper to them. Horses love to hear nice soothing frequencies. It probably makes them feel loved and cared for or rather eases them up. Could be both. Well, who doesn't like to be whispered to ear in a loving voice, anyway? :D
I hope owners have a stable and will put them inside, when temperatures go even lower. I didn't find one but the property is huge. That guy I've met probably knows but he's already gone after his affairs. It's just me, my bike and the ponies. Feels really good to be among them.
Enjoy your day! :-)
