Even in the mud the winter sun feels good!
My pretty puffy winter coat boy Finn!! His fur is so thick and warm.
Rode bareback to keep me warm!
It’s hot out there, get some water girl.

Vet day at the farm
Wait like air traffic control
Snow began to fall.

Art journal with watercolor:
And a new horse to the farm
Sweat rolls down my back.
Art Prescription: A wonderfully busy day at Blue Skies today! I drove out early hoping to get their before Bodie, the new horse, arrived on a trailer. It was shaping up to be an exciting morning around the barn. Of course Max, the barn cat, was asleep with his legs dangling in the back room.
Bodie arrived and even with all the activity, he got off the trailer cool, calm, and collected. The fact that horses live in the moment is demonstrated over and over again.
So I thought we all might need an ice-cream cone:

Index card with colored pencil:
Dried by sun and breeze
Clothes and towels hang on line
Load of fresh laundry.
Art Prescription: My grandmother’s towels smelled like fresh air and sunshine. I can see her right now with an apron on, clothespins in the pocket, reaching up to the clothesline to hang a fresh load of laundry.

Watch her canter through the field
I’m jealous and proud.
Art Prescription: This beautiful young lady rides my horse Finn on Tuesdays. She loves him. Today I watched her ride and felt both a sense of true pride to see my beautiful horse move, and I have to admit, jealousy. It’s okay though, it’s a win-win, and is super good for him. He OF COURSE! knows I’m his momma and loves me MORE. LOL, Sweet boy…
