No, Mac wasn't being a turkey, he was chased by a turkey!

I wish I had my video camera or at least my cell phone to get a picture or video. After riding on Saturday, I put Mac out in the pasture. He had a nice roll and walked over to the tall grass to eat. And he was promptly chased away by a mama turkey - tail feathers fanned, wings spread, neck out, and screaming! She startled Mac and he turned and ran away, only to turn back and go check her out again! Back and forth they went, chasing each other, until I put his halter on and took him out of the pasture. Mama turkey then guided her little turklets out of the tall grass . . . they couldn't have been more than a few days old. So cute!
