Thursday 16 October 2008

I am very sad today as Gee, the thoroughbred filly that we have been boarding for the past 2 years and who I love to death, went to her new home today. I was very sad to say goodbye to her. This first picture is one I shot of her on one of her excursions into the turnout area, saying hello to Taxes through the bars.

I had to put a horse photo up of one of our horses as I have been neglecting them for a while. This is one of the "3 babies", Dee. She is a two year old right now and has started with her education to be a riding horse. She has a beautiful face and is very refined, almost dainty. I think Larry is wanting to keep her unless someone expresses a huge interest in her LOL.

I have been trying to get shots of the milkweed seeds suspended in the air but they always seem to blow in the wrong direction and I cant get a clear shot. This was the best I could do unless I had someone to blow on them to make them float while I shoot LOL. The Milkweed plant is a very important part of the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly.

Fall is finally coming and this is the view down part of our driveway looking towards the woods on the other side of the road and you can see our mailboxes at the end. The leaves on the trees and bushes lining the drive are starting to turn and I thought made a nice scene, despite the electric pole!
As usual you can click on any of the pictures o this page to see a slightly larger version of each one.

I have made some more family contacts today and am thinking of starting a journal. I am remembering experiences and people and places that I had supressed a long time ago and am finding it very therapeutic to remember right now and deal with it in order to move forward with my life.

Abraham, I meant to post a response on the fact that my leg was more leg than you had seen in a long time other than your wife's LOL, Hey I have knobbly knees as you can see and I was wearing shorts!!!! The leg has healed and I only have a smallish lump on my leg now but the bruising has gone. My neck is still a bit stiff mainly at night when I am trying to sleep.
Well nothig exciting happening, we did have two tenths of an inch of rain last night which was very welcome, not nearly enough but I am not complaining, although when it finally does start getting muddy and wet especially like it does during the winter months, I will be complaining about all the mud LOL.
Hope everyone is well (((Hugs))))

Hi Lori,
The road is beautiful, as are the horses. I love the milkweed...we don't have that in Newfoundland and I've never seen it.

The pictures are beautiful.

Will Gee be returning again next year or is this a permanent thing this time?
