It's a dreary, cold, windy day. We took our walk this morning, and then went shopping. We're always debating whether to go to Blue Springs Walmart, or cross the river to Richmond. The Richmond store is never as crowded, being in more of a rural setting; and the road from here to there is not a busy one. Both stores are good-sized and well-stocked.
Today we chose Richmond, and Cliff set the trip meter in the car so we could see if it was further there. Well, it's only 21 miles. So that will probably be our choice from now on. We have a small Walmart 15 miles away, but it's just too small to be able to stock everything.
Although there isn't much for them to graze, I decided to turn the three horses out of their pen so they could feel free for awhile. I knew they'd run, buck and carry on, so I had my camera. Unfortunately, once through the gate, they ran so fast I didn't get any really good pictures of them running! Snickers, the mare, ran out immediately; but the cowardly boys first circled their pen before passing through the gate. In the first picture, you can see Blue just dying to get past Tude and run:
And next, you'll see the best shot I could get of them running. Next time I do this, I'll have Cliff open the gate for them while I stand poised with the camera.
It's amazing how a dreary day can be lightened up by watching animals enjoy life.
