Now I know what they were plotting...

When last we saw Hank and Lyle, they were having a little tete a tete, quietly plotting something that would either: a) cause me more work, b) make me cringe in fear, or c) both of the above.

Hank...why are you looking at me like that?

Swell. Got yourself a little dirty, eh?

Lyle, where are you going? It's muddy. Be careful. Don't you be hurting yourself.


Feel better now that you've got all that out of your system?


Those clouds up there? Dumped a little snow up on the mountains today. It's been in the low 40s and raining all day, I haven't seen the sun once, and there's a fire burning in the woodstove.

Forecast for tomorrow? 63 and sunny, after patchy fog in the morning. Sounds like a photo op to me.


  1. Looks like the boys were feeling a little frisky, in their own way, but I see Deets is coming along to perhaps referee?

    Our days are now starting off in the low 40's and going up to the low 80's ... talk about crazy ... but no humidity, so it's really pleasant.

  2. Great pictures. We had the rain today as well. I had thought about riding tomorrow, but it will still be too muddy. The only accident I have had on my horse happened on a muddy ride. So, I wait for a little drying out which fortunately doesn't take too long in these parts.


  3. Oh, fall is here! Just love the coziness of a fire in the woodstove! Can't wait to see your first snowfall!

  4. OOOOOOOO, looking forward to those photos. Lyle and Hank really are a source of endless entertainment.

  5. Wow, the weather sure seems to change quickly over where you are. First it's sweltering and then there's snow on them thar hills.

  6. Oh, we had rain today....all afternoon....great time for a nap. Love the photos.

  7. That makes total sense - they were plotting to get one last, good roll before the snow hits!

    Not to mention getting those neck kinks out! :)

  8. Your pictures are amazing and I love the scenery!!!

    Greetings from West Africa,

  9. LOL!!
    Lyle looks a little embarrassed that he just did that!
    I definitely think that Hank put him up to it. :)

  10. Isn't it amazing for such powerful animals as horses that they can at the same time be so fragile!!??

    I used to hold my breath watching my horses tear around my hilly pasture.

    Mud is a common place thing here in the Pac. NW but I still cringe everytime I see one of my animals slipping in it (not to mention myself!).

  11. Nothing like wood heat when temps drop. Lyle seemed to sense the weather. What great shots.

  12. I'm here from Bossy - I luuurve your barn cat - he looks EXACTLY like mine!
