Re: [RC] Purple Flowers - Merri Melde

Yes! Purple flowers!

In the desert of Ridgecrest, on the rare spring when purple flowers bloomed from normally dry brown plants, Jackie Bumgardner's wonderful horse Zayante, even after some 11,000 miles, was absolutely certain they were Horse Eaters!

Oh, thank goodness.  I always thought Alpine was just a twit.  He always spooks at the purple flowers.  Actually, I thought perhaps I was insane because I thought my horse was afraid of purple flowers, but it's not just me!  You have no idea how much better that makes me feel.


I have spent more than one ride yelling "it's just a stupid FLOWER".


Juli and the Herd

Alpine (who is colicky tonight, and the vet is on her way.  Sigh….)

Merlin (who is enjoying a nice night in his stall eating hay instead of being pastured because Alpine is colicky and the vet is on her way, mainly because he is a PEST and will bug me, Alpine, the vet, and anyone and everyone else)
