Hoss, Duke and Knight in the evening sunset

September 27, 2015

Tonight is a full moon. There are lots of folks watching it because it is very close to Earth and there will be a lunar eclipse. I will say that it is a beautiful sight, but talking about beautiful sights…. My horses were shining like a new car last night in the evening sun. We had a quick few days, the horses and I, with getting the speltz out. Then I had to work a few shifts at my off farm job. So, tonight, after moving some gilts in with the boar, I am relaxing and watching the moon shine 😮

The horses and I will be skidding firewood and sugarwood this week. This job is one like shoveling manure…it is just never done. Watching the horses muscles move and ripple when they work is a sight that I never get tired of seeing. Their glossy summer coats, slick and shiny, tells me they are in great condition. They are eating good pasture, getting plenty of exercise and lots of rests in the cool evenings. They are content and I am also.

As I clean and store farm equipment ahead of the coming foul, winter weather, I feel as if I am “putting a shine” on my farm. It is beginning to look neat and orderly. Believe me there are plenty of opportunities to improve, but it does look a little better each day. Soon, the Autumn leaves will adorn our place in color fit for a Christmas package…and that is exactly how I see this farm… it is a gift!
