the way to salvage a dreary day

It's cloudy and windy, again.  Cliff and I did our shopping this morning, and had some wonderful tenderloin sandwiches afterward (from our home-butchered pork).  After he went to work, I stepped outside and decided it was not too cold for a horseback ride.  By george, I paid $75 to have Blue shod, and I'm doggone sure gonna get my money's worth!  Besides, every time I stepped outside the door, Blue whinnied at me... a sure sign he wanted to go someplace.

I learned long ago that if you wait for perfect conditions to take a walk or ride a horse, you won't go far.  So Blue and I faced the wind and headed away.  It was great!  How quickly I forget the pleasure of enjoying this great land in the company of the best horse I've ever known.

I sure did enjoy the ride with you.  Thanks for the pics.

This wind is driving me crazy! Blue must not hear buggeers in the wind. Precious does.

Oh, I think this would have been fun.  I love those pics with Blue's head and ears in them, you know you have taken the pic on top of the horse!!!!  It's cute.

I love horses.  I love their fierce yet gentle souls.  And oh, how I miss the countryside.  Thanks for your lovely photojournal.
