Dear Diary,

I can’t decide if I was more surprised yesterday or today.

Yesterday we went for a ride. It was fun…until we got near these GIANTS. At least that is what I thought they were at first. But then I figured out it was just a huge wall. I think it was a can-yin like my mom told me about when I was a foal. I kept expecting to see some relatives but I didn’t. There were little bits of grass that were REALLY tasty – and – a couple that I wish I hadn’t tried. They were pokey and tasted bad.

Then today was a totally different kind of strange. Mom put me in a trailer that was great because it had alfalfa hay. I love alfalfa hay. Then some, well, strange looking guy jumped in beside me. I tried not to stare at him. I know it is rude…but his EARS WERE HUGE! I finally snuck a peek at him and found that he was staring at me. I guess he is OK. He didn’t mess with the alfalfa so I was happy.

Well, time for bed. I’m still tired from yesterday.

I wonder what will happen tomorrow.
