Autumn...






Photos by my mom yesterday...

Fall is here. Last week (Wednesday) it snowed and, though the "in town" there was NO snow on the ground, we had 2 inches EVERYWHERE. Luckily it melted that day and the next. Now it's just kinda mushy on the ground. On Thursday I didn't ride Daisy because it was raining, on Friday I didn't ride because the farrier came and pulled Daisy's shoes for the winter (and you know what she did? She REARED AGAIN! I coulda' killed her. (I don't actually mean that). Normally she only reared when he'd hammer in the shoes, but she reared just because he was taking them off! TWICE! Once on each front hoof. The little brat.), and on Saturday I didn't ride because...*scratching head*...maybe I did ride? Anyway, either Saturday or Sunday I went out for a ride and rode on a road we don't normally go on. Since Daisy hadn't been ridden in 2 days, she was really hyper. I told her I thought she was a quarter horse, not an Arabian! lol. We were cantering at one point, and she saw a puddle, and she lept in the air! Not reared, just bounced up. It was funny. So then I had to tell her all the scary things a puddle can do (Daisy-Mae, it can eat you up! Oh my goodness, look at you go by it! You're so brave! Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, I can't believe we survived passing it! It's a miracle!, etc, etc) and we got by. Then we visited a few horses that we've never met. I think they're retired, because they are old and skinny-ish, and I never see someone ride them. Then we went home...

So that's all.

I just had to include those last two pictures of my "little man". Forgive me. :)

Oh my goodness. I just realized the pictures posted in the opposite order that I wanted them to :-/....well...look at them backwards now. :D

Oh wow, Mell! Those pics your Mom took of you and Daisy are absolutely gorgeous!

I love them all. The lighting is so perfect. The colors of the leaves and grass, and sky. Ahhh!Your smile is so joyful, and you look really great on Daisy, too.
Daisy looks so pretty wearing her blue saddle pad and lovely saddle, too.

My favorite photo has to be the one with her all 'squared-up' and facing the camera with a quizzical look on her face. hehe
She's such a pretty girl. You two make such a great pair.

Oh! And it just makes me smile and laugh reading how you walked her past the horse-eating puddle talking to her the whole way. Reminds me of that video you took a while ago while riding her on the trails.

Those pics of your lil man are sure cute, too. He's really grown into a handsome boy, hasn't he?
