apples to oranges

Here is a photo of my dear Florida friends, Janet and Ted on Diablo and Red. I miss them and our sunny, warm rides. One day when I was grooming Red in her stall, another boarder, Virginia, handed Red a whole orange! Red started gobbling it up, peel and all, with the sweet citrus juice squishing out all over her face and my shirt. I could not believe that a horse would actually eat an orange! Janet and Virginia told me that all the horses there love oranges and grapefruit too! Our Pennsylvania farm has two types of apple trees and, of course, the horses love them - but oranges - who knew? I miss Red and her orange juice kisses!
