Hay guys! Check it out!

These horses, who came one by one to stand with their heads in the doorway of the pigeonnier (dovecote) at the Chateau de Boussay, amused me. They belong either to a member of the local hunt or to a local pony trekking stable, and I doubt that there really is hay stored in there. I think they were probably standing with their heads in the dark to discourage annoying flies on their faces.

If you are interested in knowing more about pigeonniers, Niall and Antoinette wrote an excellent post a while ago over on Chez Charnizay.
