Morning walk, with horses

This is me and Drifter (as in High Plains), our newest addition. She's a nearly one year old buckskin. Ain't she cute!!!

She and Winnie, in the background, are in the new pasture we just recently fenced in across the creek. Our new house site is just beyond the tamaracks in the background. This pasture, this whole place, was amazingly beautiful in the morning sunlight, so beautiful I just wanted to stay there, lie down in the sweet grass, and feel the day wash over me.

But, of course, I had stuff to do.

That's the antidote to the State Fair, I'm sure.

Darn "stuff to do"!

Horses, tamaracks - can I be you for a day?


I would love a horse. Honestly, I know nothing about them. Would like a neighbor with horses, just so I could look at them and nuzzle them once in a while, without any of the work or strings attached.

I don't know how you keep up with everything, Deb. You have an amazing sense of appreciation and balance, especially considering all of the people and critters depending on you. :) Congrats on the newest addition.

madcap- yes, it was nice to wake up to such a peaceful morning.

FC- That stuff always seems to get in the way of living!

laurahinnj- I really know almost nothing about horses, but since my husband is determined to have them, and the kids are interested in riding, I have taken more interest lately. They are a nice excuse to go walking across the creek.

lene- You obviously haven't seen me in person, in one of my lesser moments! ;) I don't know how I keep up with everything either, but I've found the sense of calm and balance I've managed to cultivate here helps me focus on what is important. That's almost another post in itself.

Dragonfly- I was instantly drawn to her; we've just had quarter horses and Appaloosas before. I was watching her run tonight, and she has the most beautiful motion.
