Feeding Time

I can't believe the horses arrived a week ago today.  It seems longer.

They have sorted out a routine for eating together harmoniously.  At first, George had to drive all the mares away from their food and insist on his superior claim to everyone's share, before settling down to one portion and allowing the mares to drift back to theirs.

Now the routine is:  George gets his portion, then Bridget, then Rose; then as I start to give Chloe her portion, Bridget leaves hers and comes over to try and steal Chloe's.  I wave my arms emphatically at Bridget to shoo her away (usually takes a couple of tries), whereupon she returns to her own pile of food, Chloe settles down to hers, and harmony reigns.
