We Love Visitors!

I love it when I can get a signal on my cell phone at the barn...because often I can't.


When I can, I'm always thrilled to answer a call and have someone say, "Are you at the barn? We want to drop by."
This particular photo was taken when my friends Jeff and Rae were out for a drive with one of their dogs, Erin. Erin had never met horses before and Jeff and Rae felt like she was up for an adventure. The three horses in the picture happen to be very young Friesians. They were really curious about Erin.
Erin sniffed. The three horses lowered their heads and snorted a bit. I'm pretty sure Erin yawned and said, "You guys may be big, but you're amazingly boring. Snorting does not impress me in the least!"
And I'm fairly certain at least one of the Friesians said, "Whatcha doing on that side of the fence? If you wanna play, you gotta come in! Snort. Snort."
Erin has manners and good sense. She politely stayed right where she was. It was fun to watch the interaction between four animals who had never met before. It was even more fun to have company.
If you're ever out and about, drop by! I don't know where Tango was in this photo, but I'm sure he'd come out to see you. He might even do a trick or two!
Jeff and Rae are coming out again tomorrow with more dogs. Tango wrote it on his calendar so he won't forget!

It's so nice to make new friends, even if you don't speak the same language!
Friends are a good thing. I would love to visit!

It was great fun to stop by your blog. I can tell you love animals too. My daughter is 13 and wants to be a writer. Her fav topic? Animals!

Loved the part about the snort snort, I've read animal communication books and a sneeze or a snort means something, I just can't remember what. But I do know my daughters yorkie-poo and my bichon spent a great deal of their play/fight time sneezing and snorting! :-)

Oh and thanks for following, I did the same!

When Tango snorts, he's scared. I have to pretend I'm really brave then...especially when I'm riding him. He counts on me!
