Girl on a Gate

Jul
29

IMG_6177
Morgan went out yesterday evening to move the horses from the field across the road to the upper pasture. Barefoot. Down the gravel driveway and into the field. Barefoot.
IMG_6181
Horses are coming!
IMG_6183
She was planning on this whole thing being so easy that she didn’t even put her boots on, so all she brought was a can of feed, no lead rope.
IMG_6186
Shortcake was briefly tempted.
IMG_6189
Then she went back to the grass outside the gates. And left Morgan begging.
IMG_6199
She needed help. And probably her boots. A lead rope probably wouldn’t hurt either. Because, turns out, they liked the grass on this side of the road, too.
IMG_6225
Then she went back to the house.
IMG_6227
For a lead rope.
IMG_6231
But still no boots. Because she’s still a teenager.

The End.

  1. IMG_6174 July 28, 2015 - Next Up, Monkeys

    It has rained almost every day this summer. I’m pretty sure West Virginia has been reclassified as part of the Amazon jungle. I’m expecting to see monkeys hanging from the trees at any time. Anyway! Here’s how the odd mimosa tree is looking now. It did bloom.

    But only from the few branches that survived … Continued…

    Will write about the cows tomorrow. I think the bull is feeling happy!

    I’ve been waiting! Finally! Tomatoes from my own garden are ripe! (These are cherry yellow tomatoes.)

  1. IMG_6065 July 22, 2015 - Happiness

    Milking the cow, collecting eggs, working the goats, moving the cows, fixing supper. A man working on my farm with me. Who loves me and wants to do it, and wants to be with me, and who I love.

    I’ll take that and call it perfect because I’ve never been this comfortably happy.

    Fog coming down in the hills after (another) storm.

  1. IMG_6034 July 20, 2015 - Butterfly

    The butterflies have been all over the flowers at the front porch. This morning, I noticed one of my cats trying to hunt them! Seriously. I think that idea had to have come from the birds….

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
