    I was brushing my mini horse, Stumpy, when the two chicks came toolin' into the stall. Survivor (a scissorbeaked, spunky chick) hopped onto Stumpy's back and loudly peeped at me to remind me it was feeding time. The less outgoing chick, Wilhemina Omelletta, can be seen skulking in te background.
    My girl Stumpy didn't care, so long as she got brushed. As you can see in the photo, I was also using her back as a shelf. [​IMG]
    She's a therapy horse, by the way. I'm very proud of her.

    Very cute! We have a barn cat who likes to climb on the horses & then another one who would go into the stall with the horses at night & curl up with them when they laid down. Our chickens however, are not as fond of our horses.

    aaawwww what a precious sight. Stumpy should have started to walk outside and take little one for his ride around the place.
