I couldn't help but laugh at her the other day when I rode her. We have an abundance of grasshoppers. While we were riding there were hopping everywhere and hitting Ballerina in the face. She didn't like that and started throwing her head to avoid collision with these pesky insects. Here's a short video.
I am just amazed at how many grasshoppers there are! Almost like an invasion!
As I was riding today, a chorus of locust could be heard. I found the remains of one clinging to a tree.
I stopped and dismounted. I let the mare begin to graze. I watched as my horse grazed close by. Contented that his pasture buddy was near.
I listened to the locust as they sang. I could hear the horses grazing, felt the gentle warm breeze on my face. Looked over the green pasture and took a deep breathe and exhaled slowly. For just this moment I don't have a care in the world. All is good!
Have a good one!
