That Time of Year

Wednesday November 9 2011

Snow dusts the Owyhee mountains. Cold winds blow down the canyons. Hair grows thick and soft on horse hides. Bellies expand. The winter fat builds up.

The endurance season in the Pacific Northwest is over for the season.

Time to hang around the hay feeders and eat. Time to sit around the campfire and munch carrots and roast oats and tell the season's ride stories to their herdmates.

They aren't even running down from the canyon like they often do.

Snow, cold, lazy days, lazy horses.

Happy horses!


  1. As always, beautiful horses and scenery! Time to grow fat :)

  2. Can I send you over some of our mud? :-)

  3. Great equestrian blog! Why not come over and post this for more to follow at Haynet an Equine Social Blogging Network

  4. Aww...that is so cute. Love the campfire and roasted oats! LOL

  5. Like true endurance horses, they know well when to conserve their energy.
