Earlier this week we got a nice break in the late fall weather. The temperatures were in the 60s and the sun was shining bright. I asked Olive if she would like to take a walk to see if the horses were around. She said yes, of course. So off we went.
When we got down to where the horses hang out, they were nowhere in sight. I told a disappointed Olive that maybe they were eating their lunch or something and we continued on to the turtle pond. I was surprised to hear creatures plopping into the water but I couldn’t tell if they were turtles or frogs. That prompted me to make a mental note to find out what happens to turtles and frogs around here when the cold weather hits. I don’t think I’ve ever known. Olive and I stood around and admired the still water and the bright sunshine for a while and then turned around to head back home. It does get dark around here pretty early these days.
As we walked pass the horse field once again, I noticed that one of them noticed us and began to run down the hill to say hi. Of course, if one comes to say hi, the others follow along pretty quickly being pretty nosy and curious beings. We hung around for a little while and while I patted some equine noses, Olive scraped around in the dirt to let them know that that side of the fence was theirs and this side of the fence belonged to pugs and their adoring public.
Then we said good-by and they watched us walk away as we headed for home.
Until next time...
