. . . SWEET NOVEMBER!
The last of the leaves are under my feet now!
The Thanksgiving Holiday was very wonderful this year with one of my sissy's contacting me about cooking for our mom, at mom's. That was a special time with them and my man. We enjoyed the relaxed environment...and my sissy's very LARGE FELINE -FREDA!
She only gets 1/2 cup of vitals a day..and she is this large!
My man LOVES her ...and we intend on adopting her, when our little kitten no longer holds the homestead down.
Good times of blessing~
I was on stable duty over the Holiday, as my PBO's were away visiting family.
It made for quite a few early mornings to travel the 20 miles for the AM feedingtime.
I just made myself breakfast and lunch to go. I usually stayed the entire day- to skip the traveling to and fro thing.
The second day I got there for AM feeding and turnout, was the day after Thanksgiving. The horses had been in wayyyy too long and though my mare is VERY ORGANISED with her poo piles-as seen here.... all in one neat pile- off to the back of the stall!
Romeo, on the other hand, had managed to REMOVE a 15 foot plank divider from his stall wall...an attempt to free himself, no doubt! And I failed to get the picture of his stall floor =WHOA...he totally walks the poo into EVERY corner and space available. NOT fun to clean up after him!
Friday was so very nice, that after I got all stalls cleaned up and plank repalced and horses turned out..I borrowed the truck-hooked up my trailer and the mare and I headed out to a local equestrian site to ride solo.
Reflections of a perfectly wonderful November day of Riding!
The next day, my lovely girlfriend from Chocolate and Marmalade Tea,
joined me for a jaunt in the Fall wooded splendor...Burrr...was very cold though!
Riding in the woods is great for summertime heat..but we wanted to get into the sun!!!
Looking for a sun spot..we planned on eating lunch in the warmth!
.....this time, she took this picture, one I actually like! I was inspired and made it my "Header", as I am struck in heart with the wonderful friendships I have made since moving my mare to a private barn.
Hidden Blessings, to be sure!
After the ride,
Michelle made an new feline friend in Charlie cat!
Then, the next day I went out again in the sunny, yet cold day, with my PBO.
Danny as my mount, we ventured into the sunlit woods ~
