i actually meant the being high part, i absolutely pictured a spaced out, wobbly horse that would laugh at everything (if horses laugh the way humans do).

that was actually much more interesting to read, though. i love that you let them choose what they want to do - riding, pet, pasture decor, if they're happy you're happy too. you're the best.

I wish working with horses paid more than poverty. Everything about them is therapeutic.

You pretty much described Anniversary Year the night we claimed him except if you switch out the laughing for snapping at a, then, 5yo Anna as she was offering up treats. He’s a big ole 17.1h puppy dog now though. A.Y. and Border do often get the munchies, however, and this is WA State. Maybe I need to get that Timothy analyzed........
