a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Last Sign Of Winter...

I hope!
A piece of fall floated in the creek branch
as spring begins to show.
Green grass is peeking out.
Ki is becoming accustomed to horses and they to her.

Today after work, I viewed hubby's accomplishments and was very proud.  He had smoothed some washed places and planted sprigs in hopes the grass will reset. 

I quietly walked the creek's edge and in the water.  It does sooth the soul after a hard day with the public.  I threw sticks, of course, and watched for arrowheads.

Hubby whistled up the horses and they galloped towards us.  My heart melted with their beauty in motion.  They got their loves and scratches and a treat.  There are times, I think, I do not need horses, then I see them like this and I know, for my center, for my soul,  for my heart, I NEED my horses...and guess who did not bring her camera!

You need those horses and those horses need you, that's for sure. Neither of you could do without the other. It's a very healthy love affair.

Yes Spring is here, and I love it, Spring is my favorite time of year, all things budding out new, just such a sense of life. I know from following your blog you have some pretty cold winters, thank God we do not, but have the really cold tempts at times, hope your day is as bright as mine, and I have named my 3 new hens too, lol
Be blessed, Barbara

I have 2 beauties here too. When my old mare died last year, I was tempted to try to find a new home for my gelding and be "out of horses". I couldn't do it. So I adopted another mare to keep him company. I don't ride. I just enjoy their beauty and make them happy. They in turn do the same for me. Spoiled rotten pasture pets...

And the way they come when whistled for? I'd say your horses need you, too!

Lovely post. It is so sunny and warm today I have been able to open the windows and air the house out. I hear ya there are days I feel I dont need animals but then I think back to the days that I didnt have them for a short period and I cant live without them they are my buddies and keep me company now that I am retired and Papa is at work. Spring in 2 days .Have a great weekend.

Your horses respond to whistles? That's a beautiful image...did you folks train them to that, or did someone else? I'm hazy on the difference between "training" and "breaking" a horse (for some people I've met there doesn't seem to be a difference, sadly) and I was wondering about your "process." How does one train without "breaking?"

I'm just glad I can at least enjoy their beauty through your camera...when you bring it. LOL

It's been spring here for over a month...I'll be glad to send some of the heat your way!

Things are altering very quickly now. I've noticed that in just the two weeks I have been off work.

Why it would not be the country without horses. Sorry be down with allergies. What do you mean watching for arrowheads? You sure have a lot of my favorite things on that farm :)

Awww....it's always very special when they come running when you call them, isn't it? It feels like such an honor, even if you know that part of the reason they do, is that they know you come bearing food. :)
