Do you ever wonder about your place in the world?
Are you doing what makes you happy?
What you feel you’re meant to be doing?
I used to wonder…
Now, I’m pretty sure I’m right where I’m meant to be.
Let’s face it, if I wasn’t where I’m meant to be, I never would have had 3 days shy of 4 years with the Very Best Horse Ever™…
She made the best faces in this shoot…
I keep going back and editing images from it that I just love because they show her personality.
Like this one:
That tongue! ❤ Sassy pants paint
I wouldn’t have been in a place to bring this beauty Home for my Kid…
Hubby wouldn’t have gotten his Girl…
And who knows what might have been when Astrid needed a soft landing from her former home…
Not sure what’s going on with that mane, colour wise, but it sure looks pretty!
I guess knowing where my place is in this big wide world is pretty darn amazing. I’m sure there are people who live their whole lives never being sure where they belong.
I’m one of the lucky ones.
I waited 40 years to get here, and I ain’t going to give it up.
I cannot tell you how much I’m loving these longer days.
I mean I could, but words aren’t quite enough, I think, to explain how much the sunshine is a balm for the Spirit.
We call Astrid “Little Red” for a reason…as she sheds out her winter coat, she shines like a copper penny.
Here I was looking to capture the glow of the sun on her emerging blonde streak.
This is what grabbed my attention, and drew me to grab the camera, the other day.
Her mane was gently floating in the breeze while she ate her beet pulp. It looked so pretty, I simply had to capture the image.
After finishing her bucket, she moved over to lick out what was left of Astrid’s pail, which gave me a chance to get this shot.
I can’t wait until Sable is fully shed out, with her golden summer coat and those gorgeous dapples.
I have photographic plans for her. 😉
And, thankfully, she’s a cooperative model and works for food, snuggles and scratches.
“In those vernal seasons of the year,
when the air is calm and pleasant,
it were an injury and sullenness
not to go out and see her riches,
and partake in her rejoicing
with heaven and earth”

Just a quick photo for today.
Weather is supposed to be nice, the snow is melting, and we’ve got a whole lot of work to do outside.
Plus, in just about an hour, we’re picking up some easter egger chicks. 🙂
Ima little excited about having chicks so soon!
We normally don’t get them until closer to June, and then only meaties.
These ones will, I hope, have a good amount of ladies to help replace our hennys when it’s time.
And, of course, there is our professional photobomber, sticking her butt in the frame. Hahaha!!
That’s our Astrid. 😉
How are y’all doing?
I know posts have been sparse.
Sorry ’bout that.
We’re getting deeper into mud/puddle season.
Before we’re into full on mud season, we’re trying to move some snow away from the equine common areas, fill holes with straw, and make sure everyone has their hooves done. I really hate when mud season messes with their trim schedule… 😡
I’m still fighting my camera.
The urge to shoot has been…lackluster is the best way to put it.
And yet, I’m trying to force myself out into the farm yard with it.
Watch the side bar, because I’m trying to put up images on Instagram on a regular basis…or you can follow us over there. Cookie’n’Cream Photography
In the meantime, the WordPress photo challenge for this week caught my eye…
