Mara B and I enjoyed a ride with Tera and Rosie this morning. It was warm and sunny and I noticed how very blue the sky was and how much green is still around. There are certainly signs of fall, however today’s route kept us surrounded by lush growing green alfalfa and grasses.
The brown we’re observing are burrs, and no one wants to touch those.
Subtle September changes are noticeable.
Mara and her pals where staying dry in their shelter when I arrived today, and Mara wasn’t even wet after a night of very heavy rain.
Mara and I then had perfect timing to ride out with Kim/Rio and Anne/Kol this morning between rain, mist and drizzle. However Kim lost both her phone case and her car key on the way to Sam’s.
Searching along the side of the road on our return to the Barn, we had no luck spotting the lost phone case. I even called it but we never heard the ringing. So we retraced our steps and headed back towards Sam’s for a second time.
Kim spotted it! I retrieved it, however there was no car key in the bag.
Low and behold I saw the key on the opposite side of the road quite a distance from the found phone case! I dismounted and picked it up! Yeah.
Three women out with their horses and a surprise twist that made for an ‘out of the ordinary’ ride this Monday morning. We were all delighted with the conclusion.
Mara B and I were ready for an outing this morning and we liked strolling the quiet neighborhood street. The beautiful lawns and gardens were lovely and Toni even invited us up to see her gardens and cute shed where she grows herbs.
We also noticed the snowy white fluff from cottonwood trees fly through the air and blanket the ground today.
This lawn is one of my favorites and motivated me to get home and on to my own yard work!
Mara B was very good and seemed to also be happy to be out and about on such a nice morning.
Mara and I had a pleasant walk on our quiet neighborhood road this morning and the flags we saw were all still, which is just the way we like it. We think that Spring is on the verge of breaking out. I noticed “brighter” light and many more bird sounds today.
Mara and walked to Sam’s this afternoon and the corn fields are now plowed fields. We enjoyed sunshine and clear skies. It seemed warmer outside than in the barn, but the heat is now on! Preparing to tack up I start in the bathroom these days to use the heat in there to warm up Mara’s bit. Just one of those seasonal changes brought on by the cold temps.
