When Life Gives you Apples...

Photobucket

...Make Applesauce!

I swear I have never seen a bigger mess in all my life! I let Sandy out to nibble on some green grass while I was busy filling water tubs yesterday, but did he take even a moments notice? Nope. The boy went straight for the spoils which lay on the ground after the recent winds. And did he ever lay waste! Eat half an apple, grab a new one, take a bite, step on this one, reach for that one. He was like a kid in a candy shop, unable to stop himself, always thinking the next apple would taste better than the one in his mouth. Apple slime came drooling out of his lips (but of course, that was before I grabbed the camera!) and the ground was littered with half chewed, slobbery bits, like body parts after a bloody massacre.

After the waterering was complete, I led his plumpness back to his paddock. I swear he waddled. It's nothing short of amazing that he didn't get a tummy ache. The hens, to say the least, will be delighted to come out and gobble up the remains this morning.

What a beautiful mosaic. I especially love animal mosaics and I don't see many horses anymore so this was especially fun.

Silly Sandy!! He was in horse heaven, all the apples he can eat! What horse wouldn't love to have an apple tree in their yard?

Beautiful REDS in your fun mosaic about this somewhat messy experience. It would certainly 'work' for Ruby Tuesday as well. Love the way you captured and shared it here ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Love the shots, I love watching horses eat, the way they drool :) He was loving those apples for sure, wonder if he ended up with red lips. When carrots given, my gosh do they drool and drool orange they do :) Enjoy your day :)

I have been cutting up apples for My Boy's bucket every time I catch him. I swear he does the same thing, take a big bite the drools it all out like he's rabid! :) I swear he's going to choke someday. I'm thinking of nicknaming him AP2 (Apple Pony 2) lol!
