“A horse is a thing of beauty… none will tire of looking at him as long as he displays himself in his splendor.” – Xenophon of Athens

A wonderful sight… a mare and her foal.

A few days ago one of my neighbors asked if he could ageist a horse and her foal in our bottom paddock.  Kitty and I discussed it and although I have plans for this paddock that I would like to put into motion we decided it was worth having a horse there till winter was past.  Our paddock has an old milk shed that is currently in the process of falling down.  I intend to turn it into a greenhouse sometime this coming year.  This shed will provide some shelter for the horse. I also intended to put some pigs on the paddock later (I will go into more details on this in a later post, once I have them worked out) in the year.  I will have to put this on hold for a while.

Feel the serenity.

The day the horse was put into the paddock we all went and had a look.  The young foal sure can run.  They are still a bit timid so they don’t come close enough for me to get good photos.  I will try in a few weeks.
