It’s officially fall now; summer’s over. The Fair is in progress, which also marks the end of summer here. The days tend to be in the high eighties right now, which is a big improvement — and won’t hurt fair attendance, either.
Kitty and I got out and about this morning, and had a good time. The horses’ coats are beginning to thicken now, taking on the look of velvet. Kitty doesn’t get much of a winter coat, but she’s darker and almost iridescent now. Here’s a shot of her shoulder.
The ranch, too, is taking on a new look. It’s busier, for one thing, as everyone whose jobs don’t prevent it is out riding and enjoying the weather. The trees haven’t started to turn yet.
Here’s a new addition; great-granddaughter Isabella, just six weeks old. She’s a beauty.
It’s surprisingly hard to take a baby picture from horseback, even with a cooperative horse!
I met up with friend and boarder Jennifer, exercising the big Walking Horse, Randy. He and Kitty went along together very well, considering he’s about twice her size. We rode in together, and had a good time.
I’m pretty sure of one thing; I’m not going to miss summer much!
