I took all the fencing down a few weeks ago, so Cassie and Minnie can wander at will. I don’t always see them when I get home after work, because they have cover the whole area at least once a day, but they know when I’m back and they usually come up. They have been spending a lot of time close to the house. Apart from the pleasure they take in finally being allowed to graze on our new lawn as long as they like, they take great interest in what we are doing. Initially they would just watch from a little distance, but now they come up and investigate.
They can go a bit far at times. My husband was bringing the shopping in the other day, and found Cassie rummaging around in the boot of the car when he came back out to get the last bag. Not only that, but she nearly came in with him through the backdoor, no doubt attracted by the bag of carrots he was carrying. Unfortunately, he didn’t think to take a picture, but here is Minnie, on her way to take an apple out of the fruit bowl.
She nearly managed it, but Cassie came up and pushed Minnie out of the way. Unfortunately for her, I blocked her access. I love my horses, but I don’t need them inside.
With apple and carrot stealing no longer an option, they decided to rearrange the garden furniture.
We all enjoy having Cassie and Minnie mooch around the house. It’s so nice to read a book in the evenings and look up to see the horses grazing on the lawn, but it won’t last much longer. We have already had a phenomenal amount of rain this week, and as soon as the ground gets soft, the lawn, and with it easy access to the house, will be out of bounds.
