Mara and I thought the sun was going to peak out this afternoon for our ride time! We were delighted because we have had such a long stretch of gray days this month.
Even though the temps were cold, with low winds and my face mask on we did ride out, Mara was great but the sun went back into hiding for our spin around.
Coming back from walking around the back soybean field we captured this ‘creative’ shot in the equipment storage lot. I guess it’s a picture of a real snow blanket.
And the sun did shine on my drive home from the barn!
Holly and her owner Leah joined us on a wonderful snow ride this afternoon! It was really beautiful, we looped the fields and rode up to and around the cow pasture (apple orchard).
Frozen apples now hang as ornaments.
Mara and Holly were happy to be out stretching their legs while the riders loved the quiet, peaceful scenery.
Today’s post is extra long, however I also want to share the following article from today’s Wall Street Journal! I’m grateful to see this and am sharing a paragraph from the article.
Mara B and I do believe in “horse therapy” so reading about the topic in today’s WSJ was validating and exciting. Thanks for riding with us!
Mara and I had a peaceful ride out and enjoyed the quiet woods, snow covered berries, and winter grasses this afternoon.
Sharing a little muted snow zen from the two fields we circled.
We both found our outing to be relaxing and refreshing, and hope you do too.
Mara and I rode out this afternoon with both Brutus and Bo in tow. Very fun to follow them and to watch them go in and out of the woods ahead of us.
When I was a young rider my favorite barn dog was named Jumbo and he rode miles with us. Today’s ride reminded me of Jumbo and the fun of trail riding with good dogs along.
Here’s the field side of Mara’s paddock, her horse friends were relaxing this afternoon when we returned home.
The last day of November provided us with a delightful ride.
