George recycles the fence post

Way off in the far corner of the front 40 stands one lonely fence post from bygone days. I've been meaning to yank it out for years but have never gotten around to it. Last night, George found multiple practical uses for it, so I guess we're keeping it.

George: Smells pretty good.


George: Tasty, too.


George: And it's just the right height for a good face rub.


George: Nothin' doin', Lucy. I saw it first. Mine mine mine mine mine.



George stood in the same spot and scratched, and Hank stood in the same spot and grazed. 
And I stood in the same spot and took pictures for a double rollover.
Roll your mouse between the margin and the image for the full effect.

  1. That scratching can be some really good stuff when done properly.

  2. That's a particularly fun rollover because the motion is more extreme than for instance water drinking. They're like little kids with a wooden spoon and a box. Endless opportunity.

  3. Congratulations, Carson. The photo you submitted on PW's blog was spectacular. I see such a wonderful improvement in your photography since your blog started. Wow! Your photos need to turn into wall posters.
    Good for you!
    Best always, Sandra

  5. Looks like you'll have to leave the post there. You can't pull up a perfectly good snack/scratching post. :)

    George knows a good scratching post when he finds one! I've been out of town for a couple of days and I'm enjoying catching up. Thanks for all the great pic's.

  8. I'm surprised Lucy didn't take the post from George. I guess she figured it wasn't worth upsetting the the little squirt for it.

  11. George, I bet that feels so good. Good thing your critters are easy going. That post looks like a perfect height for an accident, but like you said it has been there for quite a while.

  12. Lovin the rollover feature! George sure seems like he's making the most out of that fencepost. I couldn't leave that in here though. I have one horse that always manages to either end up with open wounds or impaling himself on anything remotely sharp. :(

  15. Yeah,I had to come back to say it might be a danger and needs to be removed too! It might break or gorge an eye, UG! I don't want to think about those sweeties hurting theirselves!

  17. Remember when we were sitting at that restaurant in Albuquerque eating those magnificent burgers and amazing fries? (my mouth is watering...) And remember when we were playing with my new phone to see what web and blog pages looked like on it? Well...I figured out this morning what an iPhone *can't* do: roll-overs!
    That's ok, I will always prefer looking at your beautiful pics on my bigger laptop screen! :-)
