The recent storms trimmed the tops of the major power lines for a mile down our road, knocking out power to the entire area for a week. With crews and large equipment up and down the road for the better part of the week the horses didn’t leave the front pastures. I had always been told that horses are afraid of big noisy machinery. Someone should have told my three. They line the fence to watch; the bigger and nosier the truck better. Even Mint, the most skittish one of the three, seems to think that this is the best channel on.
