Sydney and I awoke to a very quiet house this morning. Way before I got out of bed, Hubby and Jevan headed off to work for the day and won’t be back until suppertime.
Sydney and I took the opportunity to bundle up and head out the door, cameras in hand, to take pictures around the Ranch.
I have no idea what the name of this horse is but was taken aback with the white of his eyelashes! Sydney said “Wow Mama if it was snowing we never would have seen this horse!”
Walking the field up from Grandma & Pops’ house, we see the view looking towards Lytton. There’s an electric fence between us and the cows so they don’t wander over to the driveway. I never tire of this view and I find there’s always something to look at, whether it’s the swirl of clouds, a colourful rainbow, flashes of lightning, pink sky morning or night… yup always something going on down this way.
Getting to the top of the field we turn around and who’s following us? Jumbo! Most times he stays in the house because I’m sure his little paws get pretty chilly… but maybe the house was just too quiet with all of us gone?
Remember the huge bonfire we had around New Years? It’s all out now and there’s not much left!
We head back down the driveway and decide to check in with the other horses. We already have an apple quartered up and tucked into a Ziploc bag. We stop at the coral and see a lone horse. Pops takes in horses for the winter from folks in town so a lot of these horses I don’t have a clue what their names are… no matter, they still like apples. :)
With each year that passes, the Mossy Shack gets worse and worse and I fear the roof is going to cave in soon.
Even the fence rails aren’t safe from bugs and need to be replaced on occasion.
Woody sneaks a peak around the rail, most likely sniffing out the apples we have. :)
As we walk by the barn Sydney can’t resist climbing the hay bales, “Hey Mama take my picture!!”
Time to head back up to the house and Sydney has to give one last pet as we pass by the coral again. The deck you see in the background is Grandma’s house.
The last picture I took this morning is of Sydney. She was going to sit on our little tractor but there was way too much snow and opted to stand instead.
