Caution: Livestock at Large

We love driving through Cataloochee Ranch (our neighbors).

Watching the horses enjoy the spring grass.

Horses as far as you can see.

These two are just beautiful.

Ignoring the stares from us.

And Qannik and Kodiak are certainly staring.

    Woooo those faces look so familiar. I met the neighbours horse and foal on one of my campo excursions, wasnt sure what to make of them :_)

    Have you ever introduced the dogs to them? I’m wondering how they would react to a closer look….

    “Livestock at large”??? Wow, that’s a new one for me, so they are just allowed to wander like that???

    Wow those are a lot of horses! I think it’s so lucky that you guys have neigh-bors with horses. Geddit? Neigh-bors???

    Okay that wasn’t very funny. But I drooled on the keyboard anyway…

    Wow, those are some really big dogs! Why do they eat grass?

    Those horses are beautiful.
    We were driving yesterday and there were geese crossing the road (we had to stop of course). I thought Starr was going to jump out of the car and Sagira was barking at them. 🙂

    Those two white big dogs are so handsome, look like twins too. They sure did catch some pups’ attention.

    What a beautiful ranch!!!

    Beautiful countryside!

    What sort of crimes did these livestock commit that caused them to go on the lam(b)?

  12. Anna the GSD on April 26, 2010 at 10:52 am

    What beautiful horses! I’ve never seen one in person, so I’d probably gawk and stare too!

    Okay, I’m going to admit that when I saw that sign in the first picture, I was a little worried about what The Herd might have gotten into. The boys look like they’re working out a plan. “You take the one on the left and I’ll head to the right!”

  14. Mimi & CC Cabana on April 26, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Ha ha! They’re positively gawking! But I would, too–those ARE beautiful horses.

  15. Kira The BeaWoootiful on April 26, 2010 at 9:36 am

    Woooos! I would stare too, those are some BIG doggies! Do they smell funny to woo?

  16. KB on April 26, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Qannik and Kodiak: It’s not polite to stare, even at the BIGGEST dogs ever!

  17. Huskys Rule on April 26, 2010 at 9:33 am

    How do we get that big they are wondering……

  18. Wild Dingo on April 26, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Those two didn’t get the memo on canine body language and etiquette!

  19. Khyra on April 26, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Rusty told them something about pony rides!

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
