Well, it wasn’t a huge logging event but, when you’re trying to load up on wood for the winter, it sure feels like it.

My husband and I were cutting out some dead trees in the woods behind us (well I was supervising the cutting down part) and he decided we needed our mare Feather to help out.

So I threw the roping saddle on her and headed down the road.

There’s something about this mare…I just love.

I always tell people we may not be super great at one thing but, she’s done everything I’ve asked her to do.

I’ll never get sick of posting photos like this. Winking smile

I’m amazed at how wonderful mares can be when the baby is giving some pretty good udder bumps to open the milk bar! Ouch

Belly (and face) full of warm milk.

What does a girl like me do on a beautiful fall day?

I do whatever the critters want…

Who needs expensive toys when you have corn fields and stuff around the farm?

When you’re running at the speed of light, it helps to stick out your tongue.

This is a great photo if you don’t mind the fresh “I just rolled in something but, maybe my ear will hide it” look.

Got one shot of Emma as she sat down for 1/100th of a second.

My road to a sane, take me anywhere, horse…

Let’s recycle.

Sora wanted to mow the lawn and walked over.

The wind was blowing. That’s my baby, just keep munching away. Red heart

Oops! Almost forgot the princess!

Uh oh! Getting behind on my weekly photo challenges!

This is what came to mind for “big”.

When I saw that the weekly photo challenge was free spirit, I immediately thought of this photo.

My husband took this last fall.

It’s dusk and the sky was brilliant.

No fences, saddle, bridle or halter. What better way (in my opinion) to represent “free spirit” than an Appaloosa. With their rich Native American history…

Free Spirit

This is the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this challenge.

We live on a farm and I think this is a beautiful moment.

Whether you’re a horse, dog, cat, cow, human or basically “All Creatures Great And Small”.

Did you read those books by James Herriot?

You should.

 

Get ready…

Are you sure you want to see?

Ok…

here…

it…

is…

I found a great sale on personalized halters, online. So I just couldn’t wait to get Sora’s.

She’s only 10 months old but she’ll grow into the adult halter eventually.

I adjusted it so it was as small as it would go and told everyone to stand still for the pictures I wanted to take.

Except for Feather, it didn’t go too bad…

DSC_2061

 

Ok, I see you, now “whoa”!

Whoa

Whoa

DSC_2062Mmmpth!

So I ended up turning and making a run for the other side of the lot…

Great now Sora is in on the game. Whoa…

DSC_2071Oh come on! I’m running out of breath! She can sneak up on a person pretty quick in this snow! Smile with tongue out

DSC_2067-1

Finally! I’m going to stop now. My hands are freezing and I’m pooped.

Until next time…Appy Trails Smile

Uh oh, the ball is in the horse paddock! I don’t think Sophia is going to throw it back Emma.

Do you think Gus will help?

_DSC7897I’m sure baby Sora will play along and throw it back. Smile
