In the hotter months in Tucson, we leave the horses out in the big arena at night. Room to roam, lie down, sleep in the really comfy loamy dirt. I bring them up to their stalls (with lots of shade, critical in the heat) in the morning.
This morning, I went out to bring up the horses.
And something caught my eye.
In the dirt, it blended in.
I was so excited to see this.
He looks just like a miniature dinosaur.
If he gets scared, he will shoot blood from his eyes, I kid you not.
