A couple of years ago I decided to fix the the mud problem at our gates with gravel. I chose to dig out about eight inches of dirt and replace it with gravel. I dumped the dirt in a pile about twenty feet from the gate and left it as a future project to fill various low spots on the farm. I was surprised to find the horses fascination with this little hill. After snorting at it for awhile, they each took turns placing their front hooves on the peak. When they did this they got this funny look on their face like I’m “King of the Hill”. They repeated this for many days till I finally moved the dirt elsewhere.
Last night when I took Whimsy out he stopped and climbed a small berm to get some grass. Once again he that look at me attitude, “I’m king of the hill!” Silly horse!
