Rolling

Horses love to roll in the dirt. They especially love to roll right after you have spent about 45 minutes giving them a bath and doing their hair. Come to think of it they aren’t much different than Addie, who is almost 6 years old. Only she really prefers mud to plain, old dirt.

'It's okay Preacher, we both know you are worth more than that!"

I love how he looks like he is licking the post in this picture even though he was a good 6 feet from the fence.  Silly old Preacher.
