Tea Time

I let the gang loose on the lawn today to mingle in the coffee klatch. This venture met with varying success.

The horses thought it was pretty cool and wanted to join the social circle. My husband was willing to put up with a little hair chewing, but my brother-in-law visibly winced at having a pair of horse jaws rooting around his scalp.

Aw, it's a happy George.

George still happy, but human not all 
that comfortable at proximity of beast.
I finally returned the horses to their field, as I guess not everyone wants to share their space with 1,000 pounds of furniture-turning, shoe-munching, tea-drinking horse. I was beginning to make some headway in teaching George that the point of the social circle is that you stay on the perimeter and don't plonk yourself right in the middle. I think he'll get it eventually.

I wonder who's responsible for this?


  1. Is it bad that I busted out laughing at these pictures? The human's discomfort is so obvious while the horses are like "what's your problem?"

  2. Yeah, I have to remind myself sometimes that not everyone appreciates horses climbing into their lap.

  3. Awwww George DOES look really pleased with himself. I would love love love to be able to do something like this with my boy - but since we are at a traditional boarding facility...it won't happen -- they already put up with quite a few o my "different " ideas :) ....maybe I'll just have to take a vacation and come visit you. It wouldn't bother me in the slightest to have a close encounter with George - I think he's a pretty cool dude!
