King of the Hill!

Carol and Angie's horse, Cloud, has an eye disease that left him with little vision. It is something like Macular Degeneration, I guess. Anyway, the poor fellow can't really see much. So when Angie called to him to get some hay, he took the straightest route to her voice, which happened to be over a mound of dirt in the pasture. I got this shot of him going down the other side, and Angie responding, "Cloud, what are you doing?"

To us he is king of the hill!
