I call this picture "Sovey without a Christmas tree" because it reminds me of the Christmas show "The House Without a Christmas Tree". Do you remember that show? Jason Robards was the grumpy old father and every time they went to a commercial they would make the scene into a graphic just like Sovey looks, above. Sovey should never be without a Christmas tree because he is the best boy in the whole world. (Well, he shares that title with Pie!) I don't know why I am talking about Christmas on October 1st! Ok, back to autumn...I rode Sovey this morning all over the farm. It was extremely windy following our flood yesterday. There was zero reason for Sovereign to be good other than he is good. We even rode out to the new wooden playland/swing set at our apple barstool friends' house, and Sovey didn't bat an eyelash at the flags and swings in the wind. He munched his apples and stared at the new contraption. I love him so much! After our ride, mom and I grazed the horses under an apple tree. Sovey closed his eyes as he quietly and neatly chewed his apples. Of course, Pie chomped madly, grinding the apples into applesauce and apple cider and flung apple mush in all directions while he swatted at flies. They are so different and very funny. Talk about the odd couple - Pie definitely is Oscar Madison to Sovey's Felix Unger!
