Hay Toss


Mrs. Owner:  Are you ready, Doc?

Doc: Yup!  I've turned my head and my eyes are shut. Toss the hay down.


Every morning, after sweeping the boys' "breakfast plates"  I head up to the hay loft. I weigh the hay for Pippin and Doc and throw it down to them. Pippin with his ADHD is no problem. While he waits he is walking in and out of his stall, so I can time my toss when he is out of the area. Doc, however, comes in and stands.... and waits... oh, so patiently. He has learned to turn his head away from the target area - cracks me up every time!
