I have spent the last 3 months feeling sad and tired.
I am, quite honestly, sick and tired of feeling sad and tired.
And the ridiculous cold has not helped at all.

So when Hubby had to pull the tractor out to move hay bales and clear snow, he asked if I wanted him to exercise the Girls while I took pictures…I happily agreed.
Both because I needed the camera time, and because those mares were getting fat and lazy.

Galloping towards the camera…

I will admit, I lost my breath for a bit when I only counted 3…
Of course, I have the same problem every time I hang their beet pulp buckets. Every damn day, a tear escapes when I hang 3 buckets instead of 4. :/

Galloping away from the camera…

Took those nags a bit to get back into the swing of running about, having fun. When they caught on, they ran for a good 45 minutes.
Those were happy, happy equines!

I love Sable’s face in this shot…she looks so happy!

And then…


Ruby put on the cranky mare ears because Sable tried licking her muzzle…it’s something she used to do to Cookie.
Old habits and all that stuff.
To be fair, Cookie wasn’t thrilled with it either, but it’s something Sable does to be affectionate with her herdmates.

I’ve also been working my way through some old images on the hard drives. I have sooooo many that I need to pare down.
Including a couple of cute ones from the Stable where The Kid takes her lessons:

Joe the Barn Cat

The horses were coming in and Joe wanted to be out before they got there!


He’s a lovely, snuggly fellow.

I love that big door for taking pictures.
I get so many great shots there.

  1. It is hard to find one’s way out of grief. Sharing love is a great way to do it. Hugs.

    Lovely shot of all your babies, and the barn cat too. Got to have a barn cat. They keep the mice away.

    I know the three buckets made you sad, but getting out and watching them run made you feel better. We are all tired of winter.

    Have a fabulous day, my friend. ♥
