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 love taking photos of our “kids” being carefree.

Happy, healthy, feeling their oats and not a care in the world…

…except maybe, which direction did the ball go?

I thought I’d twist this around a little.

What the horses see.

Well actually Sophia is the only one here that had issues crossing the “oceans”. We’ve happily overcome that obstacle.

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…

A couple weeks ago Scott went into town and picked up his mother.

Took her grocery shopping and then brought her out for the day.

Scott was raised with horses and animals. His dad was a farrier and leather craftsman.

_DSC9009                                                            She was a great sport about all the dogs.

_DSC9053                                                           Gunner just loved her!

_DSC9051

_DSC8997   I harnessed up Feather for a drive in my cart.

She’s saying “you know this is my horse”! Smile

Ilene always tells me that I would’ve loved to have met Scott’s dad Bob. (he passed away from cancer years before I met Scott) He loved horses and his job.

_DSC9021  Smiling Ilene. Of course Whinny HAS to be a passenger!

_DSC9027    I handed her the reins. Then asked if she’d ever driven a horse.

I love putting the feather plume on Feather when we drive. You can never have enough bling!

_DSC9036   No? Okay, give them back!

_DSC9023

We had lunch then Scott wanted some camera time in the house.

Here we go…

_DSC8976

Ilene?

_DSC8977

Ahem…Ilene?

_DSC8980

There, we have your attention now.

_DSC8989

_DSC8985

Now what are you thinking?

_DSC8986

Typical  Smile with tongue out

_DSC8987

Yes put your teeth back in please.

_DSC8974  She’s such a lovely old lady! Winking smile

But she cheats at cards.

Until next time…Appy Trails Smile

I’ve been on medical rest and restrictions since December and it’s really setting in! No riding and no heavy lifting, among other restrictions. Let’s just say it’s hard to be a woman some days.

So all you men out there, reading this…go buy your wife or girlfriend a nice gift tonight just to say thank you. Thank you for dealing with your womanly parts and I totally don’t mind your mood swings as I realize they are a direct result of “said” parts. No I’m not saying your moody. I uhm…just saying every aspect of you is loved and cherished.  I realize and take notice of all the little things you do around here that make this place run. No I’m not saying you do “little” around here. I uhm….just saying…uhm…

Oh…where was I?

Oh yea about me.

Lets just say mama had a procedure and now mama is now on hormones, and mama has cabin fever because it’s winter but she has to do allot of resting and she’s REALLY getting bored!

DSC_1829Oh sure, I have my little helpers. Who can’t feed themselves or let themselves outside and need to be entertained all day and want me to throw the ball all day and decide to chase the cat on the spur of the moment, just as I’m drifting off into a nap…but the cat starts it.

DSC_1784Although I think they’re kind of bored as well. Don’t let this one fool ya…

DSC_1814Surfing, surfing, surfing…and there really isn’t anything on stupid TV despite all the stupid channels…Hey look that lady just won on Card Sharks! I don’t remember that game show. It looked like it was from the 80’s to me. But the host reminds me of the guy with that skinny microphone from the Nationwide commercials. Those commercials are funny.

Thank God for the internet. Did you know you can put up to 15 photos on a coffee mug now?

I just had to get 2 mugs. For travel and home.

…I need to take a walk.

DSC_1819It’s a gray day again.

DSC_1824And Punxsutawney Phil said he saw his shadow which means 6 more weeks of winter.

But wait a minute!!

DSC_1821 This is Wisconsin, not Philadelphia… I’m going to go with Sun Prairie’s Jimmy the groundhog, who didn’t see his shadow. Looks like an early spring is on it’s way to me!

DSC_1836Ok, back in the house now…and what do I see? The Man From Snowy River is on!!

Gotta go!

Until next time…Appy Trails! Smile
