We’re so delighted that Annabelle, our huge Shire, has taken a liking to some of the “little guys” in the barnyard. Annabelle and Whinny, our mini-horse, hit it off right away. After all, they are in the same horse family, more or less.
But what is so absolutely sweet to see is that Annabelle (Mom-to-be) has also taken a shining to our Baby Bull, even showing a bit of a maternal side, protecting Baby Bull from the llamas, who aren’t always so nice to him. Perhaps Annabelle is practicing for what’s to come?
As I stood in the rain taking these photos today, sometimes I feel like, OMG, this could be the barnyard in “Charlotte’s Web.” How lucky are we?
