I caught more than the horses this day!!
|Easy Peasy! the two I need to catch right beside each other - Think again!!|
- They look at you see the head collar and put their ears flat back on their head.
(horsey translation - stay away from me)
- They will turn their hind quarters or their bottom towards you. This is a threatening motion as they are letting you know if you don't leave them alone they may kick you.
- General look of unease and not wanting to be caught by you.
|Tubs spots me and puts her ears back - (warning not to come any closer)|
|Tubs: Ears back and walking away from me|
|Tubs finally turns her bottom towards me as her final warning to stay away|
|Tubs spys the treat of a carrot I've brought for her and her ear go forward to let me know that shes considering my offer|
After Tubs gave me the run around for 10 minutes Oscar being the gent that he is proved to uphold his dapper nature and was easily caught. A welcome contrast to Tubs moody morning displays!!
|Oscar the dapper gentleman in the front and Scooby behind|
|Ta Da both caught and heading yard bound|
My instincts were right when I took my boot and sock off this is what I found.
Later to be found (two weeks later in fact) that I had indeed sustained a broken little toe out of my early morning dalliance with the lady Tubs.
The other thing I found out was that supposedly there is zero one or even the medical profession will do for a broken toe they say just leave it to heal!!
