Today's photos

It's been exactly one month since I touched a horse. I miss them so much.
Every day Facebook reminds me that April is usually a really horsey month. 
Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, April 2018
My memories are filled with riding pictures,
April 2017
foal pictures...
April 2015
and shedding pictures.
April 2010
So many shedding pictures!
April 2016
Shedding season was just beginning a month ago. 
March 2020
I bet it will be over when I get back to the barn. I never thought I'd say this, but I am so sad to be missing out on shedding season.
Not quite April 2012
Today's prompt for the Shelter & Share Photo Challenge is "Spring Scene." I chose to set up a shedding scene, because nothing says spring to me like giant piles of horse hair.
The prompt for the April Photo Challenge is "Rarest." I'm not really a rarities type collector, but I think this Lane Ceramics piece by Maureen Love is pretty neat.
There are only five days - and ten photos - left in this month. It's been a long twenty five days, but I think I'm going to make it.


  1. I can totally relate to the shedding picture.
    It's one of my favorites you've posted for the challenges.

  2. As ever, I very much enjoy this blog. Foal hugs! That is a very nice Maureen Love piece.

  3. That shedding picture is so accurate!

  4. A true horse person associates spring with shedding! Love it! I think we can get back to the new normal, we will take fewer things for granted. :D

  5. I don't actually remember for sure the last time I touched a horse. It has been a ridiculously long time.

    1. Me too, Anne. Thank goodness for the model variety!

  6. Hair, hair, Everywhere! :) Sure sign of Spring...
