One of those ‘Oh f***’ moments

30 Sep

Pippin and Zanzi

Pippin and Zanzi are enjoying a bit of Indian summer. They are lying in the warm grass in the paddock trying to stare each other out. Zanzi knows that if she moves fast, Pippin will chase her. So she just lies there with a challenging look and Pippin watches and waits.

Horses on their way

Suddenly their attention is diverted by the appearance of our two horses moving up the paddock. They are wearing their scary masks (they keep the flies from crawling into their eyes – a torment for all horses in the warm months and are made of netting).  The horses are only walking at this moment but they could break into a gallop at any time.

Zanzi and Pippin watch them for a few frozen seconds. The horses are bearing down on them curious to see what is in their paddock. For our small pets, it is one of those ‘Oh f***’ moments! They seem to have the same thought at the exact same time. Time to beat a very hasty exit.  They turn and flee in unison.
