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 my eyes see.

What the horses see.

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

I have to admit, this one can be kind of entertaining if not read.

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!

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…

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 wasn’t gone for very long.

All I needed to do is run to the store for some milk and fruit. On my way home I realize my husband is behind me in his car, on his way home from work. So we both get out of our cars and what’s the first thing out of his mouth?

No it wasn’t hi honey, how was your day. It was, is that your horse on the other side of the fence?

Oh don’t be silly!

Sometimes it just looks that way with the angles at the corners and such…

Wait a minute…

I don’t think this has anything to do with angles…

_DSC8385

I’m thinking it may have to do with tension!

Apparently the ground is pretty greasy when you want to run and play.

…and who was the horse that ended up on the other side?

_DSC8373

Sora!! I’m not sure who started it or what all happened but she was the only one with a mud bath. Well a dried mud mask! About 2 inches thick in some spots and only on her left side.

_DSC8387

Nothing a little elbow grease and a shedding comb couldn’t take care of.

_DSC8368

Make that allot of elbow grease and about 20 minutes of working through the dried mess.

So I’m thinking she’d been out for quite awhile and I’m a bad mama for not doing a security check before heading down the road.

Sora’s mama, Feather stood and watched the whole time.

_DSC8392

While Whinny attempted to knock over the bag of horse treats…

_DSC8378-1

and…

_DSC8379-1

succeeded!

Still, this is my life and I wouldn’t give it up for any amount of money.

Donations are always welcome though. Winking smile

Until next time…Appy Trails.

This is a photo my husband took of Sora “Ima Hollywood Costar” when she was about 2 hrs old. Nap attack!

I entered it in a photo contest and she won “Cutest Foal” and a leather weanling size halter!
