Okay, okay, okay... fine...

Here's the view out the front of the boarding barn, looking across the outdoor arena to the hillside pastures. As you can see, it is the wet season here in the northwest. The outdoor arena is one giant mud puddle from November until sometime in April or so, so it doesn't get used very much. On the hillside you see Gusto and Centennial standing getting rained on, while Cinnabar and Sunfire are hiding in the shed at the top of the hill. In the further pasture, Ben is peeking out from behind a stand of blackberry bushes. Looks like knocked down another fence rail -- darn drafts.


March: it's not as wet as before, but the corner of the arena's still pretty boggy. Forsythia and cherry trees in bloom at the top of the hill.


After our early spring, it turned cold and rainy again for a few weeks, but today the sun came out again and people took advantage of it:

I like the pictures! Too bad the arena is so wet, but what a nice area around the barn...even WITH the rain.
...I see you have those ever-present blackberry brambles!! Those things are TERRIBLE and can really take over an area.

A great addition to the monthly photo collection with hills, fences and horses.

Thanks for indulging us.......it's going to be nice to watch your pictures develop (sorry for the pun) over the year.

My horses look like wooly worms with legs, esp when they stand their winter coats up for insulation. Pepper looks cute.

If you can't be a good example, at least be a horrible warning.

It hasn't been a month, but the FuzzWatch photo needed updating, as we're now in full mid-winter shed:





She looks just as fuzzy as before, though!

I am jealous!!
Our guys aren't even thinking about shedding yet. Unless I get them started under lights soon we are looking at March/April for shedding out.

Your monthly landscape pic is going to be fun to follow!

No signs of shedding yet here but it's nice to see it's happening somewhere.

Looks like things are drying out and blossoms are good. But ...... where are the horses?

Well, Ben is at the top of the hill in the left pasture, poking his nose over the fence just at the crest of the hill. The guys in the right pasture are off to the right out of the frame. Couldn't get them to pose nicely. Pepper and her buddy Bo had a good frolic in that arena after practice this morning -- with riders still on board. We were all having a little fun, but hey, I got a flying lead change on cue out of it...!
