conversations with major: clean up

Um, Major, what is this mess?
What mess?
Don't be coy, see the side and wheel of the trailer!?

Tasty rice bran!
OK, I know the contents…
Then why did you ask?
Stop interrupting. Why is it all over the trailer?
Because I just ate!
Um, dude, the bowl was on the ground. Why is the mess on the trailer?
Because I have to pick my head up to chew it, the trailer is in the way.
In your paddock you don't do that with dinner!
It is different here, just wait, I'll clean up…

That is gross Major.
No, it's leftover tasty rice bran! 
Thanks for trying buddy.
It's good, you should try it.
NO THANKS, you keep your messy face over there.

But will there be more tomorrow?
It is really only for when we do something, like go for a ride.
Then can we go for a ride tomorrow?
Just so you can have rice bran?
Ummm, yes?!
Maybe Major, maybe.


  1. Love his towel face and that he has actual sweat marks, a good working horse!

    1. Actual sweat marks because some dumb horse worked himself up so much that we were not going fast everywhere in a 7-mile ride he needed a cooler...sigh...

  2. Major has the cutest muzzle... very smoochable - even covered in trailer leavings lol

    1. It might be cute, but it is too dirty for smooches from me!
