Yup, it happened! As we were finishing up breakfast yesterday morning (Dec 6), there is a furious pounding on our door. It's my behind me neighbor. She says, "Come help quick, Eric's horse has a chair on its head!" I thought, wait, did I just hear that right or did my coffee just not kick in yet? My husband was dressed, so he ran outside. I ran back to the bedroom to pull on some clothes. He sticks his head in and yells, "BRING THE CAMERA!"
I go outside and look in my other neighbor's pasture, and this is what I see...
That's Eric trying to catch poor Cinnabar! And yup, that's one of those old metal outdoor chairs, on his head... Eric just feeds these guys, he really doesn't know the first thing about horses. They're his wife's horses and she's off shopping. The horses know me pretty well though, I sneak them carrots over the fence all the time, .
So, as soon as Raymond and I hop the fence, Cinnabar winnys at us, and makes a b-line straight for us!
"Hooray! I'm SAVED! Please HELP!!"
Now, Cinnabar is head/ear shy, we think from abusive previous owners. So, it takes a bit of coaxing (and some oats) to get a halter on him and convince him that we won't hurt his ears. Once we do, I got his head lowered and Raymond (my DH) was able to slide the chair off his head without incident.
I just thought you all would get a kick out of this one. I know I won't forget it! Lol
