You Know Your Country When...

...You get home from church Resurrection Sunday, cook up some lunch, then pull your hair up into a ponytail, step into your rubber muck boots with your Easter dress on, grab a plaid quilted jacket, and run out into the rain to feed the horses and chickens before the real storm hits.

My Chicken Posse following
me around this morning.
Yeah, that's right, I'm Real Country!

I definitely was a sight! I almost wish I had had my husband get a photo, it was pretty comical. I half wonder what the horses thought as I rushed around in my dress, probably nothing except "Hurry up lady and get me some food."

On another note, and speaking about the horses... this morning I was doing the dishes and as I looked out my kitchen window I noticed a white bird following around one of the horses. At first I thought maybe it was one of my chickens, but then it stood upright. It had a long sleek neck, much longer than any of my chickens. I don't know what it is about Fugit, our Thoroughbred, but birds gravitate to him. When he was in a stall at our other farm, the chickens would jump up on the gate and he would slide his neck along the gate so that the chickens were crawl up onto his neck and sit. Maybe he liked their little claws massaging his mane, who knows, he is just odd like that. So, it didn't totally surprise me that a wild bird had befriended Fugit. I got a could pictures from the house, but they don't give enough detail to the bird. I have NO idea what type of bird it was, and as I got closer it got nervous and fly away. Personally, I would think that a horse would be scarier than a person, being that they are much heavier and if they get annoyed those hooves don't feel to good making contact with you (not that I think Fugit would ever kick a bird, but it is possible I guess). Well, hope you enjoy the pictures, maybe you could tell me what kind of bird it is and why it seems to like the horses!
Fugit and the Mystery Bird!

is following Fugit around.

In as much as possible from the house...
