Our New Year’s Eve

Many times, clicking on a blog post titled “New Year’s Eve” would bring up pictures of folks in fancy clothes, enjoying music, dancing and good food at a festively decorated venue.  Not here. To close out our year, Motor Man and I took a day trip last Saturday to one of our favorite places…

…to visit some of our favorites of God’s creatures.  They are looking especially healthy and hearty with their woolly winter coats.

They appear ready for the cold temperatures and snow, possibly several inches, that’s forecast for this weekend.

I ask you: does this majestic stallion with the windblown mane not know that he’s handsome?

When we see the horses, they’re usually just standing (posing, we say), sometimes grazing.  It’s always fun to see them running, and the thrill is to see one (or both) rear up during a little scuffle.  And then, there are fun little shows like this one.  (Volume up)

Uh…’scuse me, you didn’t quite shake off all that sand there, buddy. But, that’s okay: you wear it well.

Motor Man and I packed a picnic lunch, which we ate while looking out on the ocean (from the comfort of our vehicle.).  And we remembered the tripod, so we could get a picture.

We were safely back at home long before dark. It was a fun, no-frills New Year’s Eve….just our style.
