Four pictures is seriously not fair Ed. Do you really know how much stuff I do in a day!? Four minimum maybe. I'll please and follow the rules for once in my life. Cause I am such a rule breaker with a lot of other Sunday stills entries.
Well first of all I see the sun rise. Every day except weekends when I sometimes get to sleep in, sometimes.
You can hardly see the road there in front of me. I was at a fork down a back road just after finishing feeding and doing stalls at my 2nd barn of the day off to my third before breakfast. It was just a little after 7 am.
I wouldn't have it any other way. As much as I love sleeping in I must remind myself people die in their sleep.
Then my inner couch potato reminds me They die happy too.
Touche inner couch potato, touche.
I see a lot of this, a lot. More times my body weight in this than you could imagine. I kick it, scoop it, dump it, wheel it and occasionally throw some of it at a passerby, which can end up as a full blown road apple fight to most of you non-horse peoples disgust I am sure. To me theres nothing better than the smell of manure, shavings and a dirty horse.. Well maybe freshly tanned leather or a brand new saddle or bridle. Us horse people are just a little bit off our rockers.
I would have taken my camera with me riding but thats a bit risky. I don't fancy replacing over a grand in camera and lenses. I do ride nearly every day. Not necessarily my horses since they are outside but at other barns along with my sh*t kicking I do.
I say find something you would do for free and figure out a way to make money doing it.
And never call your job a "job" or "work" because that drills it into your mind your like everyone else working just to survive. You gotta enjoy what you do or else you'll be sour through your life, especially when you retire knowing you "worked" your whole life. I call working for me "chores". Makes it seem a little less "work" like.
So instead I show you a sleepy Indigo who was actually watching a bulldozer driver moon the other construction workers. I think I seen enough white arse to last me a lifetime that day.
My horses are always a part of my day. Unless I am on vacation or away someplace, rain, shine, sickness or health I go out and see my horses. I have to, it's my lifeblood.
Because it's spring I can sympathize with other horse owners. Dirty, hairy, shedding horses. I do love grooming in the spring. Getting hair off makes me feel like I am actually getting something done when I groom. I do have the white horse with the teflon coated hair, all the dirt just comes right off.
Thats about my day in a nutshell if you add in more KM driving in a day than most people do in a week you got it covered.
