I was gone only a week from Owyhee, but it was a whole week. I missed the busting out of the locust tree blossoms. I missed the baby Raven fledging down the crick. I missed a week of riding. I missed the horses.
And they missed me!
Stormy doesn't always notice when I leave, or particularly get excited when I get back. He doesn't always stop his eating to come up to me, because he knows he can keep eating and I'll come up to him. This time he was happy to see me return, and he walked up to greet me. And it wasn't just about treats. He had some serious bug bites on his chest and belly and armpits that he couldn't reach and needed some serious scratching.
Jose always notices when I'm gone, he always misses me and he's always happy to see me when I get back. He walked up to me to say hi, to get some neck hugs, to nudge me for treats, and get some scratches for his bug bites.
And when I walked away from them, they kept following me.
It's good to be missed!
