Water Worship

Buckles spent the day worshiping his golden calf.

He stood there, like this, for hours.

Occasionally, for kicks, he'd swish the water around. He thought he was so cool because he wasn't spooking anymore at the sound it made when it refilled. Yeah, he's bad.

Sometimes, he'd lap the water up like a dog.

Speckles finally really needed a drink. This is a brave move on his part because Buckles is the boss.

Buckles allowed him to drink, but didn't actually get out of Speckles' way. He moved his big club head just enough for Speckles to squeeze in.

That's the news from Golden Calf Acres, where the water is fresh and the horses are well-hydrated.

That's pretty cool. Too bad you had to wait so long to get it installed.

By the way, what are those things on the horses' heads (that look like Batman getups)? I apologize in advance for my horsie ignorance.

I was wondering the same thing myself...it looks like the horse is blind folded...which made me wonder if they could see to appreciate the water tank

Those are fly masks. They keep pesky bugs out of the horses' eyes. They're made out of net material; if you held one up to your face, you'd be surprises how well you can see through it. They also work like sunglasses in that they cut down a lot of the sun's glare. My horses are as spoiled as my children.

Beautiful horses! I was also wondering about what was on their heads. What lucky horses.
