      Aren’t baby possums just the cutest?! I know there are divided opinions on the cuteness of possums, but their ears and little pink noses are completely adorable to me.

        And the adults are like natures monks who have taken a vow of silence,staying quiet as they go about their ventures in the dark of the night,silent and stoic.

          Murkle46, this is poetically special and lovely. Are you sharing this or is it your own?

    I am so jealous of that woman I’m turning bright green.

    Mike, I am sorry to be so harsh about this, but I must protest. That lady being viciously attacked by corgi puppies is gross cruelty and neglect. It should be me.

      Yes, I’m going to alert PETCO (People for the Ethical Treatment of Cutetropolitans Online).

    The whiteboard thing is ok, if a human happens to be looking at the whiteboard when the horse is hot or cold. But what they really need is a button to push that sends a text to the human so that the human can come running to clothe/unclothe the horse as needed. Kind of like those Amazon buttons that let you reorder stuff.

    • DebG September 28, 2016 / 4:29 pm

      AB, I think you should get on that right away. When you’re done, please send me one of those buttons.

      And one for husbands who ignore their wives for the computer.

    The full horse study report is a joy to read. Two of the horses tried nibbling the board in interesting ways, in an effort to get more carrots, so they had to be retrained. One of them really liked the hoomins coming and changing his blanket, regardless of what temperature it was.

      Thanks for the tip, I would have missed it – also the part at the end where, once the horses realized they could really communicate with their trainers and make their wishes known, they became even more eager to participate.
