Once upon a time, there was a young horse with a dream and a HUGE imagination.In his dreams he could fly with lovely wings and meet friends all over the world.But, he was not white like a Pegasus,he was full of colours like a parrot!
CUTE Friend there!
*** I need to say one more time, THANK you so much for your poem!I really appreciate it! :)

An eye catching horse... Love the bright color.

Oh my lord and mercy!! A color I have never cared for even on a horse. And he does have a very red face. But a horse is a horse so it can't be ALL bad. MB

Jacob--regarding you comment about the white hay bales: These hay bales are called 'haylage' --
Haylage is grass, cut just like hay but, instead of being allowed to dry out completely, it is baled when the moisture content is still relatively high. Dust and spores are retained along with the moisture and will not become airborne when the bale is opened.


The bales are immediately wrapped in multiple layers of polythene to exclude all air from the bale and allow a mild fermentation to take place to preserve the bale with no waste.
You can find out more here--well if you wanted too that is--

This horse turned into a peacock. Pretty cool. I wonder how many of these painted horses are somewhere in the U.S.? I saw one in Porland a couple of weeks ago. Not so bright.

We've had Peanuts characters and dinosaurs around our town, but I would certainly welcome horses. Love your new banner altho I know I will miss the "old" one, too.
