*Based on a true story.
Backstory: Blustery spring day - snow in the morning, rain mid-day and sunshine-y evening with tree-bending wind gusts throughout. Horses inside during the day. Me coming into the barn for evening chores.
Me: Hi girls! Aren't you lucky to be inside on this weird weather day?
Horses: Blue sky... <sigh>
Horses: Oxygen... <deep breath>
Horses: Green grass! ... <yummy yummy>
Me: You want to go out? OK but...
Horses: Letusout! Letusout! Letusout!
Horses go out.
Me: (Cleaning stalls) Doo...doo...dooo....
Me: (Filling water buckets) Doo... doooo .... doooo
Me: (Preparing grain) Doo... dooo.... d
Horses: (Banging on gate) Heyyyyyyyyy!
Me: (Poking my head out of the barn doors) Hi!
Horses: Mud! ... <yuckk>
Horses: Windy .... <can barely keep our eyes open>
Horses: Letusin! Letusin! Letusin!
