Well, not the old vault. Most of these photos have been posted before, and all are from early April, 2008. That was the last spring we were to spend on the horse farm and these photos are especially close to my heart because of that.
They were all taken in our backyard, a yard that bordered a huge paddock full of mares and foals. I remember being comforted by the sounds of them as I fell asleep every night.
I wonder if any of them went on to race. These are all thoroughbreds and were taken at Northview Stallion Station, outside of Chesapeake City, MD.
I like how furry they are for the first several months.
All I see when I look at these is contentment.
For anyone interested, Pioneer Woman is hosting another photography assignment. The theme this time is ‘Four Legs’.
I submitted one from my files, which I spent over an hour searching for.
Which is when I came across the mares and foals.
I submitted this. I actually sell it on my etsy site. It wasn’t my idea. A reader wrote and asked if she could purchase it, so I put it up. And since then, I’ve sold several others, which really surprised me. I call it ‘The Truth About Cats and Dogs’.
Long-time readers will remember George as a puppy here, playing with the stray cat that used to climb the fence to visit with him.
It was a weird kind of love . . . oh! I remember posting about it once. Please don’t judge me for what I wrote back then. I’d taken a pain pill for my knee.
One of my favorite photos of my husband.

And on that note, I wish you good day, good night ~ whatever time it may be in your world when you read this.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
