TAG!!! Apple Sauce!

I was patching up one of the fences Sunday, we share a fence line with several horses, and they like to bend the fences over because the grass is greener on this side (I guess). When I heard hooves beating the ground. I looked back and sunny was running toward me. I stood up, and he stopped, so I went back to work, keeping my ear out for him. He walked up, and nudged my hair. I turned, not wanting him to grab a mouth full of it. I have had the goats do that before, not fun. Sunny pushed against my shoulder, made a high pitch horse noise and ran off. I shrugged and went back to work. Sunny came back, and repeated the nudge. I reached up to scratch him, and he took off. The third time he did it, I stood up and followed. He stopped a little ways from me and waited. But as soon as I got into a n arms length of him, he booked. I turned around to go back to my fence, when he ran back around. Once again waiting until I was an arm length away, before running off again. We did this several times, before he stopped running and allowed me to scratch him. He pushed his forehead into my chest. I am still trying to get over the fear of horse bites. I have heard horror stories to that effect. (Like a kid who got an ear bitten off, and that woman on AFV that got her chest bit, still don't see how half those videos were ever funny).

I told my husband about Sunny's behavior, and he said that Sunny has done that to him before, he seems to like to play tag.

In canning news,

I worked on a bit more of my apples. Somehow a bad one got into my cellar stored ones, so process we must, before the whole bunch is spoiled. I made Spiced apple butter. Same as apple butter (plain) except replace the water you soak them in with spiced rum.

Also made Apple Pie Apple sauce. Taste like Christmas.

Apples soaked until tender in water, and but through a food mill into a crock pot. 2 tablespoons of vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to taste. Cook on low until the preferred thickness of applesauce.

Wow. I had never thought of apple butter in a crockpot. I'll have to try that. I'm still trying to get a handle on the latest bushel and a half that my parents brought me from their orchard. Thanks for a great idea. J

I couldn't figure out where you were going with this story about Sunny. I was envisioning a Lassie type thing, where Sunny was trying to tell you that one of the other animals was sick, or one of the kids was hurt or something. ;-)

Yum, that sounds great. I too was thinking of Lassie with your story, was timmy stuck in a well? hehe I love animals, they can be so playful.

Applebutter and sauce can go into the crockpot. Keep it on the lowest setting you should be able to leave it all day without stirring it.

Wren, me too! When it first happened that's what I was thinking as well.

While I'm not an applesauce fan, alcohol and I are great friends :) I'm thinking the rum-pple sauce sounds DELISH!
