Our weather has been just phenomenal, and so have my pony rides. Here is the lovely Foggy boy out beside our neighbor's forsythia. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils - everyone is popping out. The temperatures have been in the 60's and 70's for a week! Today is raining and cool air is coming, but how lucky we were for so long!
Foggy sees some fruit trees with blossoms. These little beauties were light pink and smelled heavenly.
Little Foggy had just ducked out to the side before this photo was taken. There was a clump of daffodils on the trail and he could not figure them out. Sovey shied at the same clump back in May of 2009. The horses must not trust daffodils because they just pop out of nowhere and aren't always there.
This is a video of Foggy walking down a lane on the south side of our farm. You can see him flicking all the bugs off his ears. I ordered the Fly Predators already. I am not feeling good about the bugs this year after our mild winter.
And this is one near the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The trucks roar past and Little Fog doesn't care. After I shot this video he wanted to go over to the field right beside the turnpike. So over we went. That is owned by other people and they have two old horses. There is a manure pile out there and Foggy wanted to investigate. I don't think he noticed that there were cars and trucks beside us. He was so involved in smelling and investigating. He is a bird!
