Yesterday morning I looked out our kitchen window and saw Pegasus, the winged divine stallion…..   He wasn’t white like the mythical creature, but his wings were. 

I called for Bill to grab his camera and a long lens and come quickly!  One of the wild horses was munching away on sea oats in our neighbors’ yard; and on it’s back was an egret.

When the horse started running, the egret flapped its wings to maintain its balance.  It was quite a funny sight!

Once the horse stopped to eat again, the egret settled back into it’s comfortable seat and enjoyed the view from its perch.

Five horses were roaming around our house for the rest of the day, but we didn’t see anymore free-loading egrets!

 

  • Questions:
  • How’s your balance – good enough to avoid falling off a horse while riding bareback?
  • Have you ever ridden a horse?
  • Did you race this weekend?

 

Happy Running! ~ Deb
