Apparently I'm running a B&B for Leo

And by B&B, I mean "Breakfast in Bed."

The Haffies keep a strict schedule around here. Breakfast is served at 6:30, then everyone snacks on hay until about 8:30, when they pause for morning naptime. Bitey face is from 9:30-10:30, then the hay is polished off, and by 1 or so it's afternoon naptime. After naptime there's browsing for leftover snacks, then more bitey-face from 3-4:30 or so, then everyone waits in the barn for me to serve dinner between 5 and 5:30.

But Leo has added a special step during morning naptime, when eating hay whilst standing becomes too exhausting. So he lays down for a bit of breakfast in bed.

Eating or napping? Why do one when you could do both? 

Sometimes the neighbor's donkeys join him.

But sometimes you just gotta stay in your plaid jammies and have breakfast in bed.

 Anybody else have one that does the eating and napping thing?


  1. Echo will eat grass when he's laying down, he's not one to let food pass by. My boys do agree though, the scheduling sufficient bitey-face time is critical to the success of any day.

  2. So cute. Nilla will do this, but none of the rest of ours do.

  3. If the opportunity for lazy multi-tasking ever presented itself, Val would be all over it, because second to eating, his favorite activity is catching serious zzzzs.
