A Repost From Eight Years Ago~More Pictures...Fewer Words



It is...was a beautiful day. Warm, windy, and did I say wonderfully, comfortingly warm!
No snow, no rain, only mud left over from both.
Started at the barn with my four God-Given equine treasures.
(Refer to previous post, My Mistakes, My Glories.)
All not recently groomed with their winter coats.
As you can see the wind is blowing.

I took pictures of Arrow's whorls so I can get them read by some whorl experts (y'all!). 
In this picture you can see plainly why he is dubbed Broken Arrow.

Knot was too busy eating to smile for the camera.

Showing Magic's blue eye.
It was a day for muck boots, not these!
 It was warm enough that the mud felt quite wonderful pouring through all the holes
while I was trying to keep my balance.

Maggie and Lil anticipating the walk
Then we walked.

One of five ponds we have. This is the New pond, meaning it was built in the last twenty years. We also have the Top Pond, the Highline Pond, the Frog or Hog Pond and the Spring Pond.

Parts of the creek no one sees
Another hidden jewel
Help! I've lost my feet!
The sky darkens!
Watching Lil hunt a varmint.
Enjoyed the day and took many pictures.
and found my feet!

This post was written eight years ago, two months after I entered the blogosphere. Circumstances may have changed but I think I may be about the same.

Happy Holidays!

I did not know you eight years ago, so am glad you shared this today. Your horse pictures are beautiful captures. I never had the privilege to own one, but do appreciate them. Thank you for the adventure, as always. Hugs.

I had no idea you have so many ponds. Do you sill have your beautiful horses? Do you ride ever? My favorite is the very first horse with the beautiful white line all the way down his face and white eyelashes. Such brilliant blue eyes Magic has!

Jo said...

Hi Gail, your horses and dogs are beautiful. Are those markings on Arrow's forehead for real? You don't have the horses any more or have I missed seeing them recently. Have a great day. Jo

Lynne said...

Loved seeing your horse treasures . . .
I'd say the love of muddy feet is still the same . . .
Squish Squash . . . Oooooze . . .
I too am surprised at the number of ponds . . .

Show horses anytime--they always make me happy. Broken Arrow is the perfect name.
Hey, those toes haven't aged a day in 8 years.

As I have gone back in many of your previously written posts, I have seen many wonderful posts about your horses. What beauties they were. I especially like the name "Broken Arrow", which sure is perfect. Aah, even back then you got your gators on your feet. ha,ha - Gail, somethings never change....in your case, this is a good thing. Happy Day my friend. Hugz to my buddy.

8 years! Wow! You made me think back to what I was doing 8 years ago and I can't remember. LOL Love the pictures!

Sandy said...

Gail,

Love these pictures. OMG those eyes!!!

Harry Flashman said...

I look at your posts, and I think to myself I need to get my camera out and go take pictures again. I used to do a lot of that, but these last few years I have just not had the get up and go.

You sure caught some sweet faces, the horses and dogs are sure all having a wonderful life!
