Autumn has officially arrived and the weather has embraced the new season seemingly without hesitation. After a Saturday storm dropped a couple of inches of rain on us, we are now enjoying mornings in the high 40s, glorious sunlight sparkling on a world washed clean, and that stirring fall breeze that whispers of apples and wood stoves and christmas lights twinkling somewhere far down the horizon. If you can't tell, Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, especially to be on horseback!
After being out of town last weekend, we had family visiting here over this weekend and are now due to leave this Friday for Chamberlain Creek 50! Today was crunch time on getting Scrappy out for a few miles, making sure he was moving and feeling good, tack and boots were working well, and his hooves were just how I wanted them. Scrappy has been here for 2 1/2 months now and I still hadn't ridden him out from home, so on went the gear and out the front gate we went!
D'aww he is just so cute you'll forgive the lollipop head photo angle, right!
