Farrier, dentist

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:

Gently takes from hand

His soft muzzle, chews, juicy

Favorite apple.

Art Prescription:  I love sharing an apple with my horse Finn. I take a bite and then offer him a bite. After a ride and grooming this ritual is so nice. Good boy!!

I found a rainbow

When I looked into the eyes

Sweet mare, Frosty Girl.

Art Prescription:  Joy is what you find at the end of a rainbow!

Window to the soul

A place you gaze when in love

Where you find the truth.

Art Prescription:  I did this sketch one night in bed. Added colored pencil just now.

Like the Eagle’s song

I’m pushing it to limits

With color and marks.

Art Prescription:  Thinking last nights painting was a bit dull, I went back into it with color, graphite, and colored pencil. Could be just emotion…

Finn grazing, spring grass

So ripe and green, expansive

Buries his nose, bliss.

Art Prescription:  I love seeing the horses out in the pasture where they are wild and free.

Morning at the farm

A white horse stands in a field

Yellow buttercups.
