Horsing Around In Summerland
On 4 April 2001, Evalyn Wood took Kelly Wood and
me for a walk past some farms near the town of Summerland, B.C. After
reaching a viewpoint overlooking Okanagan Lake, we returned to our car
and fetched some old apples to feed some of the local horses. Although
they were at first somewhat wary of our presence, the horses soon warmed
up to us and were busily munching on our apples. Sometimes, we would
be overwhelmed when two or more horses would go after the same apple.
The scene eerily resembled sharks in a feeding frenzy. In such cases,
it's best to just drop the apple and move away slowly.
