Sorry no picture today, except the one in my head, I will try to share!
Went out to feed the horses this morning, as usual Easy was waiting outside, so her stall was empty. I get to throwing hay to the other two and filling Easys slow feed hay net. I hear crowing of roosters out behind the barn, so I walked to the back to take a look. There are three big white roosters and four big white hens, they are kind of a creamy white, but you get the picture. I am watching them, they are about 20 feet away. They are the neighbors chickens, that run in the pasture. They scratch in the manure pile almost every morning, I dont mind all the bugs they eat.
The roosters are crowing every so often. Then I notice they are on alert, cluck cluck cluck in a deep voice, one of the roosters makes, with their funny head strut. To my left, on top of the manure pile, I see a wild rabbit. He is slowly stalking the chickens. I just assume it is a he, protecting his territory, rabbits are very territorial. He starts hopping towards the chickens, they continue to alarm cluck, as they slowly wander farther out in the pasture. He gets them far enough away and turns around and heads back towards the barn. He then sees a tweety bird, and proceeds to try to chase it away to! The little bird flies into the blackberry bush. (which I am spraying this week!) Silly rabbit!
I went back inside and finished feeding the mares. I dont think he tries to chase them off! LOL hmm but maybe thats why they were so squirrely when they came in last night!!! LOL LOL
People think rabbits are so cute and cuddly! But really they are evil, I tell you, evil !!! LOL LOL
