(As opposed to “Long Ears” ~ which you see a lot of on this blog.) I have today as my special guest model my father-in-law’s horse. She is our one and only equine of the short ear variety on the farm. Her two companion horses were taken by lightning three years ago. She keeps watch over the cows and adds some grace and beauty to our pastures.
She is a Percheron ~ Morgan. I just love her white face.
She doesn’t really have a name, just like his dog who also remains nameless. I call her Sweetie or Big Girl. Anyone remember the song “Horse With No Name?” Does that date me? Probably! I only wish she had an equine companion again.
Here’s our last Fall tree for the season. The Bradford Pear comes through at the tail end with a nice show of color for us.
Last, but certainly not least, a Remembrance and Thank You to our Veterans and those currently serving in the Military. I’ll re-post this photo I took around Memorial Day of this year at a local cemetery. Their flag display is amazing.
