Late night and I venture out to feed the horses. It is cold and crisp and the air smells like snow.
The horses are quiet- we’ll pretend they weren’t having their normal squabbles. I’m enjoying the time in the dark and the silence. It barely seems cold although the temperature is probably in the teens. I am just enjoying my quiet time…
Wilson & Levi are sniffing noses… Levi gives Wilson a “kiss.” They lived together for a while and are friends. I smile at them. Such an odd friendship.
Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Then the silence is shattered by Levi yelping. Wilson stepped on Levi because he felt threatened by another horse and Levi failed to move.
So much for “Silent Night.”
These are the days of my life…
(note- Levi is fine)
