Tuesday 4/22

Sunny this morning and lots of wild turnip blooming around the area, some whole fields are covered with it.
The big excitement at work today was when the horses got through the fence and at first onto the campus and then the ran down the highway and cars were stopping. We scrambled after them and eventually the settled down at the elementary school down the road and the police blocked traffic as the boss got a halter on one and the other followed back down the highway and into the field. Hopefully they will stay there as there was plenty of grass and no need to run off. They must just miss Rebecca who is on vacation this week and takes care of them.
The supervisor was waiting for me in her queen's chair.
Another low flying airplane, this one is a C130 and was unusually quiet.
Our red bud tree is blooming, I keep telling people that it isn't red but nobody wants to hear it.

  1. I didn't know c-130's could even BE quiet!

    1. I think they are practicing being quiet somehow and flying under radar, probably up to something.

  2. Horses, which are by nature always a pain in the butt and never satisfied even though they are really nothing more than the welfare class of the animal kingdom these days, will run off just to cause a ruckus. Ever since all the animal rights freaks managed to get most of the equine slaughter houses shut down the four hoofed critters of ultimate pasture destruction have felt they can get away with stuff like that.

    Times be a changin though, the Liberal animal freaks don't realize eatin horses is a big thing with the South of the Border crowd and the more they let in the more demand there is for horseflesh once again.

    1. Wouldn't that be ironic that all of these clowns come into the country and take jobs away from welfare people and then eat all the horses.Buuuurrrrp!

    1. I didn't have time to grab my camera when they were running up the road. They were having a great time and knew it. Something must have got them worked up as they were just standing there eating just before the great escape.

    1. They are a weed that can ruin a field but I do like the bright yellow and have sold a few paintings with them, they really set off a blue sky.

    1. Yes it was a good sight to see them heading back into the pasture. I have to keep mine where there isn't much grass or he will eat too much so I keep him in electric as he wants to get to greener pastures so to speak.

    1. If you were doing a painting of redbud, you wouldn't have too much luck using red without a blue and some white.

  11. Oh my that would have caused a real distraction when the horses got loose.. they were probably pretty unsettled themselves :) How nice to have such a sweet supervisor waiting for you at home.

    1. Distraction wasn't the word, everyone got out of their way for sure!
      I am not sure how sweet the supervisors are, they seem impatient every time I see them.
