Nap Time

For Me....Z-z-z-z-z-z-z

Well, that didn't work out as planned.  I came home a little late because I'd stayed after school to visit my 9th graders fundraising "Game Night."  They had several electronic games set up throughout the school as well as some board games and charged a fee for students to join in the fun.   I didn't contribute any money but I did stay for about an hour laughing with them and just watching them have fun.

I got home, fed the Boys and made myself a light supper.  Then, after a bit at the computer, I was rather suddenly overwhelmed with "tired."  So I lay down on the couch for a little rest.


I fell asleep.  It's now dark out.  I could put on the lights and use the arena, but nearly 10 PM is a bit late.

The Boys were out enjoying the pasture when I got home.  When I fed, I called and there wasn't much movement towards the barn.  I guess I was out there for about ten minutes waiting and I THINK I saw Tucker starting to move towards the gate.

If the feed's gone when I go out for late feed, I'll know the Boys finally decided to come in to eat.  The grass is not that lush, but I guess nibbling green is tastier than nibbling grain.  As long as they are happy, it's fine by me.

And, I'd much rather have my horses act casually about their feed rather than charging in, tumbling all over each other and stampeding to the feed tubs.  Contentment is much more relaxing for everyone.
