What a difference a day makes

After the sunshine on Friday and warmer (50s) temps), yesterday we had snow and didnt waver much off of 34 the whole day!!! Today again it is cold will be a bit warmer than yesterday and is very sunny!!!! The mud is drying up but it will just take one rain shower to make it into mud soup again because of all the deep hoof marks which will just fill with water again. Abraham I feel your pain although I do know that only 60 miles south of us which is more or less where you are they have been having far nore rain. We seem to be in the average belt which I am grateful for.

Expecting some hay tomorrow which I will have to unload because I just can't come up with someone to help me do it, Richard will help but lifting large bales of hay is the last thing he should be doing.

I am going to try to get some poop out of the barn today, the horses have been living out because it hasnt been raining and they have managed really well especially since it was about 23 when we woke this morning. My poor babies had frost on their backs LOL, but they didnt seem to mind. Can't wait to see a bit of green out there although with this many horses on that small space I am not holding my breath.

On to my picture for the day. A new group tht I have joined of equine photographers have set themselves an assignment to shoot a picture that they consider abstract art or that has the potential for an abstract picture, so I spend a little while out in the cold yesterday looking for textures, it doesnt necessarily have to be a horsy image. Ths is the rust on part of my poor little pickup truck. I dont know how it keeps going but it does and has been so reliable. I am going to play with it in PS and see if I can make something interesting and appealing out of it and a few other shots I took of other stuff.

Hope you have all been having a great weeked and havent indulged in too many chocolate easter eggs. Stay warm safe and happy.

Oh, Lori, your poor truck. I have a very small spot of rust on mine. Looking at your makes me think I better get mine fixed. lol

I'm wrong again! Dammit! I thought the photograph was one of me. You know, kinda old and decaying!

Well, we had a housefull all day today (Easter) and my computer was off since about 5:30 a.m. this morning. I am on now, about 7:30 p.m. and played with some images but and also trying to decide if I want to change my layout again. Oh well.

Your rusty spot is a sign of rust. You can cut it out put a frame on it and sell it on E-bay for the price of a new Dodge Ram Pickup. Just call it Lori's Pickup. You might be surprised.

I hope things works out and you get the poop scooped out and the hay put in and you don't break your back getting it all done. I got this rheumatoid arthritis now and it makes me hurt places I never hurt before so My spine is driving me nuts.

I am glad your horses are well, fed and happy. Hope the wound is healing up on the little one.
