“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Ask A Horse

Ask a horse what kind of day would be his favorite,
and he will tell you:
"blue skies, cool temperatures, no insects, with plenty of fresh, green,
spring grass in front of him."

Hooves down, that would be the best day for a horse.

He might also tell you that he would prefer to not be experiencing such a day
with a grazing muzzle on his face.
But, that's beside the point... not an option.

Yesterday was one such day.


We've been quite lucky this spring.
Summer has been in no rush to push Spring aside;
and so, we have enjoyed cooler than usual temperatures.

While the horses were out in the upper pastures, grazing,
the dogs and I took off for the Field of Dreams.
I wanted to immerse myself in the day...
in all of its sights, and sounds, and smells, and feels.

I packed up my tea, a quilt, my knitting and some camera equipment.
