Sun Teaser

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 & Snow

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!

Riding Out

Mara and I were able to ride the back trail this afternoon.

The pasture horses at the neighboring stable where all blanketed and munching on their round bales.

We circled back around and rode home through the bare fields.

It was refreshing to be “out” for both of us, and we would have ridden longer but my chilly toes sent us back to the barn. It was 24 degrees.

Chaps over ski pants were toasty but I think I need to pull out my winter boots too.

AZ Visitor meets Mara & WI Snow

Mara B and I have not seen each other for a few days while I’ve been enjoying Little Free Library meetings and visiting LFL Board Members! I was definitely missing my horse time but found some horse inspiration on a few of our outings.

(There will be a special prize for the follower who can correctly identify where I spotted this beautiful horse.)

Today at the end of our meetings Jake, from Arizona visited Mara B with me and they really hit it off.

I was delighted to have my Mara B check in time and to share her with Jake. We seem to be on to a new season.

Sweet Pup & Out!

Mara and I have been enjoying Pat’s pup Bo lately and this morning he was our sweet greeting committee. Bo is proving to be as dear as Brutus, and it’s fun to be seeing more of him.

Mara and I got ‘out’ of the indoor and enjoyed the Meyer’s loop. Today’s photos highlight the current landscape.

We had pretty chilly temps (in the 30s) but Ms Mara was great, the country side beautiful and slowly some sunshine brightened the morning.

September Sun

Mara B and I had a later afternoon ride today and the angle of the sun was beautiful.

The conditions were what I like, very calm, quiet and still.

It was one lovely view after another this afternoon!

And new Barn pup Bo greeted us when we returned to the Barn.

Happy Labor Day Weekend to all our wonderful Mara Moments followers, thank you for riding along with us, we appreciate your support. 💛☀️🐎 Helen
