One of the truly wonderful traits of horses is their ability to embrace the now-ness of any given moment. On this unusually clement afternoon in late January a young cellist sets up to practice for an equine audience. Iota McHippus, the mini in the yard with him has shown interest in music before so he was the natural choice to join Augustus Post, the musician that day. MuMu caught wind of the goings on and came cantering closer from his roll bale in the barnyard.
Do note how MuMu prefers to stand as close as he can to the music at the gate – having left his buckets of oats hanging on the fence. MuMu is a happy oat eater – this is so small thing for him and speaks volumes about his gifts of being a natural appreciator of the finer things of life.
