Me and my inspirational shadow

Isn't it magical how inspiration can just suddenly hit you sometimes when you least expect it?

I was messing around with my horses this morning, which I do twice a day every day of the year but today I got that wonderful feeling of inspiration, another idea to put into writing purely from my hobby.

My oldest horse, Chad really struggles to eat his hay these days as it is too hard for his ancient molars to cope with. He eats well but I wondered if there were any money saving ways of getting him to eat more. I had been thinking about it for a while and today I discovered a way of making my own Chaff which is like a finely chopped Hay/Straw mixture. I won't bore you with the details but it worked, he chomped his way through a huge bucket full and gave me the most slobbery kiss possible to say thanks.

The great thing was that I immediately drew inspiration from my exercise and thought I may turn it into an article at some stage. I got the photos and the evidence that it works - just need a nice editor to take an interest and say yes!


  1. I like it when inspiration skrikes out of the blue like that!

  2. Hi Diane,
    It's amazing how we find these moments of inspiration. The shadowy photo captures the essence of what you noted in this posting.
    Take good care, Gary.

  3. Lovely picture Di.
    The shadows make it seem to me as if Chad is about to rub noses with a lioness.
