Don't Get Your Feelings Hurt

A few weeks ago some folks came all the way from Missouri to meet Maisie.  They wanted to get her hoof-ograph.

Um, okay.  How do I say this...

That's really not an off base idea...except it's Maisie.  Everyone I told about this had the exact same reaction.  "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Can we come watch???"


"Maisie?  Some nice folks are coming a long way to see you."

"Umbfwchrgh"

"Could you be polite and go over and let them take your picture?"


"Yeah.  I guess.  Munchmunchmunch."

And they'd like to get a hoofprint, too."



Maisie, Maisie, Maisie...

She's actually a very sweet girl.  That time she bit Saint Tim when we were trying to catch her to trim her feet was just a fluke.  Mostly ;-).  She's had that sassy attitude her whole life.  And that's probably why she's had a life.  Still, if you come out tomorrow hoping to hug Maisie, just be prepared.  she might give you the tail!

So don't get your feelings hurt ;-).

That's so funny! I wish I could be there to try and hug Maisie. I guess she's spared at least one hug attempt!

I would love to come to the "Hug a Sheep" event next year. I live in Utah and would need a little notice to get a flight out. Do you have any idea when next year's event will be or could you give us a month or so notice to make arrangements? I have read your wonderful blog for years and would love to meet everyone and see your beautiful Equinox Farm. It would also be our first visit to Kentucky so we could make a real adventure out of it. Thanks!

And I can only imagine where that hoof print might end up..

Alice said...

Well did she give them her stamp of authenticity, or a tall tail for the curious guests??? Inquiring minds want to know.

I am so disappointed. I was planning on coming to hug a sheep day but my grandkids are coming to go to the last day of Keeneland. Guess I'll have to wait till next year.
