it’s fall y’all*

Horseshoe leather bracelet and necklace“I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers…”

Fall in Leipers Fork  by far my very favorite time of the year. The heat is lifted, the braids come out of my horses manes and the flies start to go off duty. It is glorious.

The horses also get a little more spring in their step. Pretty much the only downside is Mr. or Mrs. skunk that likes to reside under the barn begins his/her mating season. And you know who loves to chase skunks? Because he thinks they look like kitty cats. You guessed it. Nigel.

I don’t need to tell you how that story ends.
