Ignoble Perch

with 4 comments

Last week, when the snow was rapidly vanishing in the sun, Cyndie captured this poignant portrait of Delilah perched regally on one of the manure piles in the paddock.

IMG_iP3105eCHIt must have improved her vantage point to see the property in the distance where a certain 2 dogs who keep showing up on our trail cam happen to reside.

It surprises me that Delilah can come in the house after mucking around in the mud and manure in the paddocks for hours, and somehow, she won’t smell bad. It’s like she has a natural odor barrier that wicks off stink. Well, simple stink, anyway. The time she tangled with a skunk, she smelled awful for weeks.

Of course, it didn’t help much that one of the concoctions Cyndie purchased to get rid of the skunk odor left Delilah smelling like she’d just had a perm (hairdo).

Hey, I just noticed this image also shows a pretty clear representation of how good the footing looks where we have limestone screenings compared to how bad it is everywhere else this time of year. This solution sure has worked out well for us.

  1. It also appears that some your horses’ “output” did not make the pile! LOL!

    • An astute observation. I’m sure Cyndie was in the process of scooping when she paused the photo op.
      Hey, you should go for a scenic drive some beautiful spring day and stop by for a visit. I’m home Fridays, plus the weekends…
