2013 Project 365

Project 365/142 – Filly


A drive to the veterinarian was needed today to pick up some medications for Remy. I had seen on Wolf Creek Equine’sfacebook page that there were some new babies on the farm. I was hoping to be able to see them on my short visit.

I was fortunate as the babies were in a lush field with their mothers enjoying the day. Of course, no drive to the countryside is complete without a barn capture.


The horses paw and prance and neigh,
Fillies and colts like kittens play,
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins.

    • You can tell this filly will be a handful when she grows up. I got to pet her, talk about soft fur ! Thanks on the barn compliment. I think I’ve found my magic formula for processing those barn images.

      • Hi Emily, I haven’t painted horses yet – but am trying to draw one now. and yes, this would make an amazing painting – I should give it a try.

        Not sure if you saw my posting on Thursday – actually I think you may not be receiving my postings. Several bloggers have had to un-follow and re-follow my blog, for some reason and this seems to correct the problem.

        Have a great weekend – I’m trying really hard to get everything set up on the new website and I might have to re-take each photograph. I know I sound like a broken record, but I’m getting close to having things ready to go – worked with the State and County for taxes, etc.

        • I haven’t been reading for about two weeks now as I’ve been so busy ! So can’t guarantee I’m not getting your posts on my feed. I’m also seeing my reader numbers drop significantly. I’ll pop over in a minute.

    • Thank you Rachael. Funny little bit, I saw the vet and she said that they were painting the barn so the babies were out in the field for a few days. They would lay down like they were in the Serengeti. 🙂
