The changing colors have been spectacular the past couple of days. Autumn is in its full glory all throughout. Driving along the road, each turn gets a gasp and a WOW with the incredible colors.
Hopefully I haven’t bored you this week with continual autumn images. But I can’t help it. I’m astounded by its beauty and I just have to share each day with you. A visit to the barn was due as it had been a few days since I’ve been to visit Remy Martin.
Darling Remy has been on rest the last two weeks, and has about a month more. She got new shoes last month and the farrier placed a nail too close to the bone. The nail and the shoe has been removed, but a bruise is inside her hoof which takes six weeks to heal.
You know how it is, when you’re not quite sick, but not quite well and you’re supposed to rest. It drives one crazy and all Remy wants to do is go out and gallop. Instead, I decided to bring her out for a photo opportunity on this after the rain, overcast and beautiful day.
So come with me out to the paddocks.
First there is always a quick visit with Macaroni so that I can give him an ear rub.
Getting Remy Martin out of her paddock, I tried to get her to pose in front of a beautiful autumn tree. Of course, the only thing she could think about was eating grass.
Her ‘brother’ – Javalin – kept nickering at her. Hoping that Remy would return his affection. He is such a hopeless romantic. I try to remind him Remy is his sister, but he doesn’t care.
Remy wasn’t that great of a model. She kept running off to better grass. So I pretty much gave up getting that gallery shot of Remy. Javalin however, was a picture perfect model. Don’t know what it is, but my cats are the same way. The girl always runs away when the camera is brought out. The boy loves to pose.
It’s going to be sunny weather this weekend, and then cooler. Autumn will be wrapping up soon and the holidays will be here before we know it. It will be sad when all this brilliant color is gone but it will forever be remembered.
Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.
