My afternoon ride....:)

"There comes a point in every rider's life when he wonders if it's all worth it. Then one look at the horse, and he realizes - it is." - Kelly Stewart 

This quote pretty much sums up the way I was feeling today; I was feeling down in the dumps because I my math score wasn't what I wanted. 
 I'll say right now that I am a perfectionist and a problem solver. One of the worst feelings in the world to me is failure, with the worst being helplessness.
But, I also loath being unhappy, so I went to my tried and true way of solving all my troubles: Riding. What else? :D 
I also like photography, so, feeling artsy too, I brought the camera along for the ride. And, in a way, I brought you too:)
I rode in our "neighbor's" pasture today because it has a lot more places I haven't discovered in full yet.
Going down a hill and into the old riverbed, long dried up.
A yecka plant
Over the old dam
Shyanne smelling the pine needles
Up on the hills, our neighbors have pine trees, which are rare this far north.
You can see in this pic that the brood mares have stomped and eaten any grass that was under the tree at one time into oblivion
A dead tree, torn apart by time and weather. And curious foals.
The drinking pond. I fixed it up in iPhoto to give it a vintage look.
Big sky country.

For some reason I really like this shot. I'm not quite sure if it's the colors or what... 
But you can also see my purity ring I've mentioned a few times; its a christian fish<><
I like this shot as well.
A fox or badger den. Maybe even a skunk lair. (:l
Leaves I played with on iPhoto

Rocks. :P

There's nothing so good for the inside of a man as the outside of a horse. - Ronald Reagan

  1. I like the first picture the most.

    Because it is like with her ears pricked forward that there is a new beginning and new hope.

    That's what I thought when I saw it!
