First time grazing on the green pasture

The barn where Panama is stabled has a pasture that grows very green grass 9 months out of the year. It also has a watering system, which helps the grass keep growing as fast as the horses can eat it.

The horses haven't been turned out in this pasture for several weeks, ever since the green grass started coming in — the owner wanted the grass to have a chance to take root before the horses started grazing on it. Also, the sprinklers were not working, so that had to be fixed — and then the holes from working on them had to be filled in.

Today the pasture was all ready, though, and the horses got their first chance to graze on the green grass. Here is a picture I took of Panama and one of his buddies:

There is something very peaceful about watching a herd of horses grazing together. Don't they look happy?
