All was well tonight with Thunder and the rest. A huge relief!
He was back to his perky, bright-eyed self, and headed right down to the hay to dive in after his grain.
NONE of them are as excited about this bale - it's a lot stemmier than the last few, and they're picking through it pretty thoroughly, leaving a fair amount. Which is fine - the calves are getting what the horses push aside, and are making a nice nest of it. (I kid you not - where I've dumped the hay over the fence it looks like a giant, rather messy, bird's been nesting!)
Now I'm going to go sit quietly and stare at something that's not pixelated for a while - it's been a very long day at work.
