All Good Things Must End


 I walked out to the barn with the dogs yesterday to see if I still had a barn...or horses.


Our region was engulfed in a super-crazy-dense-fog.  


There is a fence between the turnout and east pastures, where the horses usually hang out, but you couldn't see it at all.


I walked up to the gate and saw what appeared to be Little Joe.  Then, I turned and saw several more in the shadows.


It was so cool to see them emerging, one by one, starkly outlined by the white of the fog. I thought it would be fun to tape and share it.  





The fog greeted us each morning and disappeared midday.  We are guessing that was our last good weekend because the forecast is calling for snow in a few days.  We took the opportunity to get in what may be our last 2 trail rides.







Last Monday-Friday, during what has been this  lovely, long autumn, I spent one day working with Bee--driving her with her bit.  That went very well.  Another evening, after work, I rode Leah to the barn next door and around a 10 acre pasture--working on her collection at the walk and trot.  Afterward, I switched her out for Cowboy, who is acting stiff and needs exercise.  I spent another day at the barn next door working with Leah on the basics.  I realized she is very stiff and needs way more daily bending.  

It's going to be sad to see the weather change.  Very sad.  I will miss this time, but I guess all good things must end...for now.

  1. Sometimes it’s best to live in the moment and not worry about tomorrow

    1. I try to do that and take advantage of every day. Still, I will be sad to see these dreamy fall days fade off to winter. I will long remember them as some of my most favorite and horse-filled.

  2. Love the colorful Autumn pictures. Looks like a nice trail ride. The weather is so crazy you may be surprised with better weather than you expect. If not riding in snow is fun too.

    1. You know me, I love to ride bareback in the snow. It will be fun, too, but these last fall rides have been heavenly. I had one on Saturday and another on Sunday. Heading out tomorrow, too, the last warm day before our snowfall. I’ll move to the next door neighbor’s indoor when it truly turns bad, but I’ve tried to be out in the sun as much as possible, while it’s here.

  6. I just watched The Mist (Stephen King) on tv last night - lingering fear had me scared for you walking around in the fog! We are having another snow day, not lots, but it all adds up; & here I've been praying for a return to Fall.

  7. I think the horses were pretty curious about how you looked appearing out of the fog too. That li'l pony is cute.
    I sure hope we don't get as much snow as we did last winter.
