Somehow, I ended up with 2 black geldings - both of them found us, we didn't go shopping for them. I also have two other horses that are light chestnuts with flaxen manes. They found us also. I also had a pair of dark chestnut mares that now have a great home with my friend Molly. They are the same size, the same exact color and both have white blazes on their faces and white stockings. Both of those mares found us as well, coming from completely different places. It's just funny - the little quirks of fate in life.

Anyway.... I went out on Saturday to play with my black boys, Buzz and Bo, (I also didn't name either of them) and they were napping flat out on the warm sand. They looked like twins - facing the same way, looking like the same horse - twice.

They were really out - for prey animals, especially. They obviously feel pretty safe in their own pen. I wanted to ride, but I didn't have the heart to get them up.

So I putzed around the yard, putting things away, taking pictures.... until they finally noticed me.

And even after they woke up, they still looked like twins.

After a few minutes, they got up and started following me around. They're bored and would rather play with me than hang around doing nothing. So I rode one and led the other and had a lovely outing around town on a gorgeous, coolish, March day. Aaaaah, 50 degrees, my favorite weather.

What a blessed life!
