Last Sunday afternoon, Jack called out, “there are horses in our backyard!”. And, sure enough, there were two horses that had escaped their pen and walked to our house for a visit. They first explored our backyard. Then they both walked around to the front of our house. Morgan, Mary Katherine, Jack, and I watched their every move. We opened our front door talking about how pretty they both were. When all a sudden, both horses decided to meet us up close and personal! I have to admit. We are not horse people. We scattered like a shot! All of us ran back into the house and slammed the front door. Jack was so cute, waving us girls inside and locking the front door for good measure. The horses just kept coming right up to the door. One even took a bite out of the creeping jenny in one of my urns. We were all inside yelling,”Noooo!” and beating on the door, but it didn’t stop him from eating it. And to make matters worse, a long piece of my creeping jenny hung out of his mouth like a trophy. I bet the two of them were laughing at us!
And just like that, after their little snack, they both turned and left our yard. Our neigbors reported that they came to their house too. It’s not every day that two horses come right up to your front door!
