Thankful Tuesday

This is the horse Tracey named Charm. We really got nearly that close. It didn't seem to mind us too much. There was another mare and a stallion with her. She will be having her baby pretty soon now it looks like.

This was a bachelor that just came trotting towards us. I thought he was coming right up to us to visit. He stopped there and looked at us for a little bit and then ambled over and stood under a tree. It was snowing as you can probably see. And it was very cold with a brisk breeze blowing in our faces.

A group in the corrals. That is not Sage but would have been my second pick. The biggest difference is their tail color. Sage has a black tail that touches the ground but not so long a mane.

This is the group of horses we saw the first trip to the South Steens. The sun was setting and the glow was beautiful on the horses. There were several more of them just outside the picture.

This another view of Sage. Her head was behind the pole obviously. I just can't wait for her to get here so I can get started.
I did not go out and work Rusty today. I had too much house stuff and I was too tired. Back to her tomorrow. She did let me walk up to her in her pen when I went to let her out. I just wish she would get "that look" from her eyes. I want her to relax.
My thankful today - you would think it would be Sage - and that is a part of it but the most I am thankful for was the time I get to spend with my daughter. I can't remember when just she and I had time together. We talked, we laughed, we just were still and had fun. I got to introduce her to my friends in Burns and she got along well and liked them. It was a blessing to be sure. She is under extreme stress at home and I just wanted her to rest and relax and have fun. She said she did. I believe her. I know that I did.


  1. Lea--did a lot of the horses get adopted?

    I'm glad you got to see your daughter, too. Sounds like she needed her mom.

  2. "Daughter time" is precious, isn't it? I don't get to see my two oldest daughters who live in Portland nearly enough - but when we do, it's a time full of laughing and being silly - like a slumber party! Glad you got some daughter time!
