Farewell. . .


The last of the leaves are under my feet now!
There is so much to be thankful for......
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 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!

I usually am the only one taking pictures with one hand on the reins...
.....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 ~

I left Washahse to happily dose in her Christmas colored blanket...

We loved the sunshine hitting our faces

Into the trees now we go.....
The Mossy branches were beautiful!

Then back out into an opening...Romeo had the right idea to gaze upon the horizon to see...

......the waxing "Blue Moon" rising in the sky over Mount Hood.

Nice Horseback riding days of met with the chill of December...
It looks good in pictures ,  looking on it again  here...wrapped in the suns hazy warmth. We return at sundown, refreshed and excited to still be riding into oncoming winter's shadow!


  1. Wow, Kacy beautiful pictures! wish I could ride, it's been cold, raining all day, deer hunters are blasting away...think I'll stay in.
    Love your new header! :-)

  2. Beautiful pictures! I have a very large cat, but that cat is larger, a lot larger! We are cat people too - we have 3. Looks beautiful where you are!

  3. Oh, and I love the new header photo!

  4. What a beautiful way to document the end of November. Lucky you with your gorgeous trails and views. Especially your wooded view through two cute ears!

  5. May I say, I love the socks! Not to mention the great mossy forest photos and, of course one of my faves, Mt. Hood!

  6. KK those socks made me giggle!!! I thought I was the only one who wore strange socks over her breeches.

    The pictures are beautiful as always. I haven't been able to ride as our weather has been rainy/freezing rainy. So I envy you.

  7. Awesome pictures and I love your leg warmers.

    In fact, I was just looking for a stretched pair to make Yoda a coat.

  8. Oh darn. Yet again I try to leave a comment and it tells me 'unable to do so'

    I try again.

    Your photos were lovely, Kacy. My fave is the mossy tree through the horse's ears. And the last one is so soft and mysterious.

    I'm glad you were able to spend a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
    And man, that Freda sure ius.....err....fluffy. lol!
