Today I tried to get to the barn ahead of the nor’easter (which around here is what we call a serious storm with wind and precipitation.) By the time Tonka and I had finished our ride, the snow was coming down.
I stopped outside of the arena to take a photo of Tonka. I thought it’d be pretty – black horse, red building, white snow.
Tonka thought it’d be fun to catch snowflakes with his tongue.
He then deigned to pose. Briefly. This was nice but the background wasn’t ideal.
However, the wind and snow picked up and I decided not to keep trying for that perfect shot.
Tonka gave me one more goofy look, and we headed back to the barn.
Predictions vary as to how bad this storm will be. The snowfall is supposed to be very heavy tomorrow. I’m already holed up at home. I’m working on a more serious blogpost for later this week, but because I’m stuck indoors, and in front of the computer, and sorting through photos, I thought I’d share his silly faces with you. Let me know if you like these quick posts – I’ll do more of them! On the other hand, maybe yet more photos of Tonka are overload, and you’d rather I stick to one blog a week? Be honest. I know that I’m no judge as to whether there are too many Tonka photos!
I enjoy your posts, long or short, fun or informational! Keep ’em coming!
Thank you, I will!
I always enjoy reading about your time with Tonka and seeing him through your pictures. I did the same thing during the last storm. I thought “black horse, bright blue blanket and white snow”, and away I snapped! Here on the Maine coast, we are hoping for less beach erosion than we had last week. We shall see what the morning brings!
The coastal communities have been especially hard hit this winter. When will you do your first beach ride of the season?
We may try for sometime in April. There is only a small window before it gets busy, and of course horses are prohibited from mid-May until the end of September. You always have an open invitation to join us!
I’d love to! Tonka needs to be 100% sound for that long of a trip. He’s almost there.
Now be serious, Terry… Can there ever be too many photos of that gorgeous cheeky horse of yours? Answer: no! Just keep them coming!
We’ve just had our first ‘proper’ snow in several years in Cornwall. Great excitement for young and not-so-young (me included!)
But we were lucky, it was all gone in about 3 days and now Spring is well and truly sprung!
There are many parts of the UK which are struggling though.
We’ve heard about the UK snow here in the States. It’s always more challenging to deal with when you’re not used to it. There’s a reason that our stores stock snow shovels. Just regular shovels won’t do.
There are never too many photos of Tonka!
I absolutely agree with you! Thank you for commenting!
There is no such thing as too many Tonka photos. Keep them coming, as well as your quick posts. They’re fun to read!
I’m glad you feel that way, Nikki. I bet you’re looking forward to your first event of the season.
Too many Tonka pics? Sometimes I’m disappointed there’s not a beefy blog to learn from and think about, but a happy “this is my life “ share is always good and sometimes just what is needed to remember to count our blessings.
Always grateful to read your work. Thank you.
I’m happy that you like the “beefy”blogs. They take me hours to write, and knowing that they reach an appreciative audience makes the work worthwhile.
I like all your posts, it’s nice just to see something quick with Tonka’s pictures and not have to do any real thinking. Could there ever be too many horse pictures?
The quick ones are a brief moment of happy. Can never have too much of that.
I like ALL your posts!
And I like yours – even when you’re writing about Lance’s health issues.
I think a short post and a few photos is better than no post at all and so I see it as an added bonus. I love all your posts, long or short and NO there could never never be too many photos of Tonker. Loved this post and the photos of that adorable face.
Tonka is happy to make more goofy faces for you 🙂
Any post about anything is most welcome, love being able to have an insight into another way of life. Enjoy seeing pics of all the animals. Keep them coming. Keep safe and warm. 🙂
It’s been quite a storm! But so far, the power is on and all critters are fine.
I just went to hencam when I read your post about having quite a storm. You did get a lot of snow. Someone was out there shoveling the chicken pen. Hope the roads are clear so you can go see Tonka.
I enjoy reading every post you publish! I usually learn something, and always want more pictures of Tonka 🙂
