My friend, Leslie Anne Webb, has a lovely filly named, Lucia.
Last week, Leslie called me and asked, “Uh, this may sound odd, but do birds crowd around any of your horses?”
Me: “Sure, we have tons of birds on the fences and eating after the hay…”.
Leslie: “No, I mean ON your horses. Do the birds sit on your horses and crowd around a particular horse?”
Me (thinking about this…): “Uhhh, no. No, the birds don’t sit on my horses or crowd around a certain horse.
Leslie: “Well, they are ALL OVER Lucia. I swear, they never leave her alone! She has birds on her all the time and usually several on the ground, following her around.”
Me: “What kind of birds?”
Leslie: “I don’t know. Little brown ones.”
Me: “Do they land on all of your horses?”
Leslie: “No… only Lucia….
Me: Send me pics.
And so she did.
Are any of your horses bird attractions? If so, PLEASE send pics! Maybe some of you are bird experts and can explain this? Does it have to do with scent? Leslie and I are baffled.
