Late afternoon ride a few hours ago after Maizie's cross country invitational. Pie first and Foggy second. The day started gray and wet and humid and warm and then it suddenly got windy and blew in autumn proper. By the time I got to the barn it was chilly and beautiful and the light was...indescribable. I tried to shoot some pictures, but I could not capture what I was seeing.
Between rides I gave Pie a post-ride graze. I pretended that I was not rushing him, and acted nonchalant, but really, I only allowed him to graze for two minutes. I timed it - two minutes. That way, he thinks he is getting some lushness like the other boys, but his belly doesn't add the unnecessary heft.
And speaking of heft! Look at the heft here!!! Long shadows make Pie-Pie look worse than he actually is!
The actual is a little round.
My ride on Foggy was equally breathtaking. Fall is the best season ever. The light, the temperatures, the leaves, the grass - just perfect.
