The Whirling Wind

Today, Siete was an angel. I especially appreciated it because the wind was wild. Neither horse seemed to even notice the ten foot tall swirling cyclones of leaves in the middle of the pasture. When a huge branch broke off a tree and fell about twenty feet from us as I led Siete into the barn, she didn’t even blink. She was totally calm and on perfect behavior. I’m hoping she got my message yesterday.

The wind really rattled me. I’ve been forgetting things and feeling really disorganized. I’m just jumpy. It reminded me of the Santa Ana’s from the California desert and the Mistral from North Africa when I was in the Greek Islands. Only this wind of ours caused the temperatures to drop big time.

I’m off again tomorrow to shoot more video at an apple orchard in Massachusetts. I pulled out my fuzzies and my warm hat and gloves. It’s going to be a long day. So, why don’t you join me right now by the fire.....

Oh boy, can I appreciate that fire. The guys that were supposed to install our second pellet burner canceled today and won't be here until Monday. I refuse to turn the heat on right now. I am freezing even in sweats ,slippers and blankie! I posted a pic of the dolls for you to check out. :)

Victoria...we had wind and a big drop in temperature yesterday and it's not much better today. Of course we have our fire going too, so I will be joining you shortly.

It sure is windy today. Glad to hear Siete cooperated with you, especially when the tree branch hit the ground. Hope you have a good trip to Mass. and a good shoot. The fire looks inviting.

Mmmm! That fire looks so cozy. I'd love to join you. Our temps dropped into the low 20's tonight. I'm freezing!

I'm pleased for you that Siete and Silk were calm even in the midst of the whirling winds.

It is great to see another horse blogger out there. We just started a blog so we can talk with other horse owners. We have some medical conditions to discuss (loss of an eye due to moon blindness), trail stores to share, and it always just great to get advice from other horse owners.
