Green Coming

Merlin and I are there again. Back to regular riding, and back to communicating like partners. Every spring it gets easier, a combination of learning more about horses and riding and just knowing him. We ride to the top of our mountain on the neighbor's trails and take in the early spring view. It looks like this. The stark white birch and the grass yellow and trees bare. In a few weeks buds and green will take over. That will be a welcome time for sure.

I am hoping to start taking on some art commissions as well as sketch commissions from anyone interested. Right now pencil sketches are going up on Facebook every day and two readers asked about sketching their chickens and cats. I am happy to do so! Any way I can keep the lights on and wolves from the door, especially through art, is welcome.

Looking forward to moving past this time of uncertainty and fear and into the real work of a summer farm.

What a great view!! Riding on such a beautiful day does lift the spirits. I'm not on FB, but glad your art work is helping your dreams to stay alive :)

Jenna, I know nothing about riding, hence my question: why don't you ride in the winter? Is the footing too slippery for Merlin? The weather too cold for you? Both? Some other reason I have no inkling of?

The place I ride belongs to my neighbor, and they are snow mobile trails. The unspoken rule is winter is theirs and summer is horse-okay. But I also avoid riding on slippery ground since I don't want either of us to slip and fall.

Beautiful. Maybe take a pic from the same spot in a month or two, bet it will look a lot different
