Blessi and the Plume

Blessi is one of the most observant horses that I know.  The resident farm rooster usually roosts in the beams of the stable at night.   Yesterday, Blessi was loose in the arena and he walked right up to a fallen tail feather to investigate it.  He has done this to an owl feather, a sale tag from T J Maxx, an empty water bottle, etc.

I always thought Blessi would look quite dashing as a carriage horse with a plume.  I guess a rooster tail feather may be the closest we will ever get.

It is also hard to take a picture of Blessi
when he is loose--either he comes too close
or he eats grass--as can be seen by some of
these failed pictures.
