Simple Pleasures

I've said it before and it's been reiterated time and time again: animals seem to really appreciate the simple things in life.
Stoney's such a multitasker--bathing and grazing simultaneously.
With the hot weather we've been having, I try to give the horses a quick spray-down every afternoon or evening to give them some kind of relief.
Stoney in particular, has always enjoyed his baths.  After he's turned back in the pasture, the first thing he does with his newly cooled, cleaned body is take a good roll in the dirt until he's caked in mud.
Getting a bath and a good roll obviously put some pep in his step! His squeal of pleasure as he gallops by is a gentler reminder that I should be more grateful for the comforts I all too often take for granted.
