Is Dinner Late?

8 X 6 Oil on Masonite $100 SOLD
I could feed "Easy" 10 times a day and I would still get this "look" as he's standing over his empty feed pan. So pathetic. If you have horses, you know that they are predominately directed by their appetite - and most are insatiable. If a horse gets free choice of grain, he usually will eat until he gets sick - and for horses that often means laminitis or colic - both potentially fatal. Easy is no different. And he's a sloppy eater, spilling grain all around the pan. My other horse, PJ, puts her face into the bucket and keeps it there until the grain is gone - no mess. Easy grabs a mouthful, lifts his head, looks around, spills grain, paws the bucket and often even picks it up - spilling grain everywhere. Such a slob - but he always brings a smile to my face. Does he even have a clue as to how grand his life is - a race horse who didn't want to run....?
Matthew 25:37 "Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
