fat year round, even on dead winter grass. And Dandy gets fed separately because she is still growing. Easy is an ex-racehorse and tends to stay on the leaner side naturally - even while PJ stays fat - so I need to moniter him a little more closely. He really isn't too thin - he actaully looks quite fit at this body weight. But it is still an indication that I need to try to get him a little more and/or make sure he's covered if the weather turns nasty.
This painting is in my more painterly style, and I kinda like it. My pasture really looked like this this morning - cold, damp and dark, yet lit by the promising morning sun. The title reflects my continuing feeling of optimism as the days get longer toward Spring. Now if it would only rain....
1 Samuel 15:22
But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD ? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
