Horses Down

with 2 comments

One really great thing about the proximity of our chicken coop to the pastures is that we are able to observe the herd while we work. The middle of the day has been a time when it is not surprising to look out and find them settled in for a group nap.

That is always such a captivating sight, having them all lay down for a rest at the same time.

I would assume that they feel much more comfortable conking out to that level of unconscious when they have enough light to safely survey the surroundings.

The funny thing for me is, the way they look here mirrors the way I tend to feel around those same hours while at the day-job lately. Trying to simultaneously design and build a chicken coop has me burning my candle at both ends. A long night’s sleep has been one of the things I’ve sacrificed.

Oh how I’d love to join the horses for a mid-morning power nap.
