Feeding horses

A couple of months ago I started feeding horses. This is a picture of me at the paddock.

It's about a 1.2 mile walk uphill from my house.  The original owners aren't around anymore (due to death) . The new owners do not live nearby.

So I volunteered to feed the horses in the mornings.  I walk up the hill, feed them and give them fresh water in scrubbed buckets.  

 It's wonderful exercise and fabulous for my soul.
