a carry

Yesterday Mallie and I took a walk at Lincoln Parish Park, Ruston's best kept secret. O.K., so I took a walk; Mallie took a carry.
She will be ONE on Wednesday.
(This picture is possibly my best ever self-taken snapshot!)

Putting aside the very sad news of a struggling sister late in the afternoon, I had just about one of the best days.

I had my first day volunteering up at a place called Covenant Farms.
I am going up there once a week to help out and learn more. This morning I got to help with the feeding of about 35 horses. Just being around them was invigorating to my soul. I got to feel the sunrise whilst trying not to step in poo, and scoop bucketfuls of alfalfa, and watch the farrier shoe and trim several hooves. I got to catch and lead, and ask lots and lots and lots of questions.
I was so happy and so busy that I did not take one single picture.
