Time Got Away from me....

Can't believe how much time has passed since I wrote.
Kids are already on their way back to school tomorrow.
Both in Junior High.
My oldest daughter/child is getting married in two weeks. Yikes!!
Does that make her old, or me? I would have to say her. :)
Yellow has been with us for a year.
Love that horse. We make a great match. Mellow but yet a little bit of sass.
Girls have become better riders and will soon be looking for the next step up.
Poses the question of keeping their first horses or selling them.  I already know what
their answers will be.  They will be great horses for a long time to come.  Horses that
we can put anyone on without a doubt and know they will be just fine.  So they
won't be leaving our property and have a final resting place by Black Jack.  He holds a special place
in my heart as well as the rest of the animals do.  People that don't have animals don't understand
how animals mean so much to us animal lovers.  I tried to explain it to my Mom, she said she understood but I don't think she did.  They touch you in ways no human can.  They are my therapy.  Have
a bad day, go to the barn or play fetch with the dogs. That's me :)
One of my dreams finally came true!  The hubby went on a trail ride with us!!!!  Up until that day, we had not been on a ride together. Beautiful day and gorgeous property along with wonderful horses, friends and family made for a perfect day.  Add a super potluck afterwards, and it was over the top.
Hubby still doesn't have a horse of his own but someday, hopefully soon, he will.
Love this picture of a night sky.  We had some crazy storms come through that night.  When we walked out to take pictures, everything had the yellow/orange haze, almost as if we were in and old black and white movie that had yellowed.  On our phones and camera's it's a setting called Sepia but I didn't need to set the camera to get a beautiful picture.I hope all of you are well. All 6 of you :)  that were following at one time.
I hope to start writing again.  We shall see. :)
Until next time :)

Yellow Isn't Just a Color....

I know it's been a while since I last wrote.  I was grieving the loss of my black beauty.  I have days when I think of him and miss him tremendously.  He will always hold a special place in my heart and mind. 
I started looking for a horse and found one, he's one I met before, about 2 years ago.  Beautiful now 9 year old registered Morgan gelding about 14.2 hh, palomino with dapples!! He also has a strip of brown on his face, like most horses have white he has brown.  There is a small white star on his forehead.  What a stunning horse.  He may be younger but that horse will go where you point him without balking.  Over, through, around anything! Sure footed! I took him places I never would have taken BJ.  BJ had a bum knee that prevented us from going down anything too steep. I was always afraid his knee would go out and we would go for a tumble.  I loved BJ and always will but it is time to go forward and ride with my daughters while I still can.  Fall riding is the best!  We have to squeeze as much in as possible, since hunting season and winter are right around the corner.  Hunters do not take to kindly to riders going through the woods when they are trying to put winter meat in the freezer or a trophy on their wall.
So without further ado, I'd like you to meet Yellow.

He is a looker and a lover.  He loves attention, in fact he almost demands it.  What an absolutely gorgeous boy! :) Hard for me to believe that we have horses!  We are fortunate to have them.  One of my favorite places to be is out in the pasture with them :)  Amazing creatures put on this earth.  Best therapy in the world for me is spending time with our animals.
Til, next time.....
