Pepper's new Neighbor
We stopped by to see my old horse Pepper on Monday, on our way back from the elephant seals. Look who moved in to the next paddock!
A one day old colt and his mama. The mare's owner said Pepper stayed at the fence, transfixed and excited, all through the birth.
I used a Photoshop action for that first shot. Here's another one of Dinah and me, right before she drove back to college- can you tell how sad I was feeling?
She called last night while waiting for the vet. Her old goat Margarethe had lost her horn, but it wasn't as serious as it sounds, though it had me worried for awhile. The goat was actually de-horned as a baby, (not by us, it's a cruel procedure), and this horn that fell off was hollow inside. The goats are nine years old now. I guess she'll bring them home this summer. I've always been fond of the goats even though they're forever mean.
