Cool Skills

with 2 comments

It was hot yesterday, and tropically humid. That double whammy is enough to alter our choice of activities. That goes for the horses, too. Cyndie put a halter on Legacy in a plan of walking him out to a shadier and breezier spot to graze. She reported that he responded with a sigh and a look spoke volumes to her.

He didn’t want to expend the energy of walking to a potentially better spot.

IMG_iP1410eMaybe that is what inspired Cyndie to find a way to emulate Legacy’s attention to self-preservation. She offered to help me prepare the rest of the pallets I have been collecting from work. I looked up to find her hammering with one hand while sipping an ice-cold smoothie gripped in the other.

Now that’s efficiency.

I wish I could manufacture some of that efficiency for myself. It would come in handy for actually turning a pile of pallets into a structure that will house and protect some chickens.

In case someday we ever actually get chickens.

  1. Wow Cyndie! It’s never occurred to me to burn calories as I consume them … 🤔
