it's a living

I was just going to rest while Emily worked at Pokagon today, but the horse said "neigh" ... So I hiked three miles. The horse probably went further, but hey--it's his job.

That's Willow -- she likes apples, and being scratched on the side of her face!

No, I just stopped by to visit: Willow is one of the horses at the saddle barn in Pokagon State Park, where my wife works. The last horse I road had a more interesting name: Whisky!

Horses are so lovely looking. I punched one once but it was for very good cause and a reflex, I swear. That one is a handsome sod, what a beauty.

Don't feel bad -- since being around Emily at her work, I've learned that people who work around horses have to get pretty rough with them sometimes, to keep them in line. Not quite punching rough!

I was running for our lives with 8 year old Chad under one arm away from a crzy mental horse that took a dislike to us, we jumped a fence and it didnt stop running in time and it's head broke through the flimsy fence and as I shoved Chad behind me I punched it. Instinct. I neither condone or am proud of what I did. Quite an amusing story to none horse lovers tho. :0/

It's an amusing story to horse lovers, too! Emily will be the first to tell you that there are crazy mental horses out there ... and you just can't reason with them.

It was mental man! It was on a chain thing and staked into the ground and when it saw us walking to school that morning (can I just point out this was a tiny field in the middle of a housing estate so there was no rhyme or reason to why it was suddenly there that day) it ran at us making very strange/scary noises, when the chain just came out of the ground and started beating against the floor behind it I picked Chad up and ran and ended up jumping over a fence. Bloody deranged thing it was. I range the police and the day after and it was gone. But yeah, punched a horse, bucket list item #7 completed lol

I have a feeling your bucket list is more interesting than mine!
