Amazing pics, Jgirl.

Dark, wet and dismal here at the moment, so I've drawn the curtains and am ignoring it!

We do get a bit of snow now and again.....2009......

nice pic!
made me reminisce the days at our ranch. we had three of our own horses and boarded several others. i loved being around those creatures. i loved watching their social structure and the sheer beauty and grace of their movements.
i don't ride horses however, strange huh?

The pic was taken by Mrs.Ealdwita from the warmth of the Landrover! She doesn't ride either! She did bring us a nice,hot flask of coffee, if I remember rightly though.

here are a couple pics of the ranch. we had to sell and move back to town because my partner was too often away on business and i couldn't keep the place going on my own.

first pic - Heidi the morgan and Obie the peruvian

this pic was taken as i was getting them back to the paddocks for feeding. good old 'treasure' in the foreground. that mare was 27 i think, and she ruled all the younger horses. like a grandmother that took no crap - even the alpha horse didn't mess with her and he was a jerk to everyone.

Thanx for the free lattes, JGirl. :tu: My local weather is mild, sunny skies with bits of cloudiness over the mountains and no snow on the ground. The one Christmas/Holiday song best describes what it's like to be in a warmer climate in this time of year cracks me up. :lol:

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the wavetops glisten,
and children listen
To find shells on sand as white as snow
