Have to admit, that after completing my recent Project 365, I’ve been having this feeling everyday that I’m supposed to be taking a picture. Seems a year of taking a daily capture is now ingrained into my spirit and I seem a bit lost knowing that I don’t have to take a daily photo.
A later start got me to the barn in the chilly 25 degree weather. At least it was 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. All was quiet, and the horses were out in their snow filled pastures. Tacking up Remy, we went out on a trail ride in the woods. All was quiet and serene. No human footprints or horse hoof beats were imprinted on the snowy trails.
There was quite a bit of wild animals tracks that showed a lot of activity. I had no idea what they could be. Was it deer, rabbit, raccoon, fox? One set of tracks were quite light and intrigued me even more.
My iPhone quickly succumbed to the cold and I was only able to capture this one horse-back view.
Remy has become accustomed to getting cookies while out. Remember those automated horses in front of K-Mart? Put a quarter in, and you get to ride? When it decides to stop, only another quarter will get it going again.
Well, it seems that Remy has learned that trick. She’ll stop in her tracks, turn her head all the way around to me leg. It’s as if she is saying “Quarter (cookie) please” Or else this ride won’t keep going. She has me well trained by now, and I always remember to have a pocket full of cookies. Works every time.
