Feather Creek Farm

A couple of miles from my house, is the farm equestrian olympian Mike Huber used to own. The next owner did not keep the place up, sold some of the land and left it in disrepair. Luckily a someone new is returning the farm to its former glory, with new cross country jumps,a stadium jumping set up, a dressage arena, and repaired and refurbished fencing. This weekend Feather Creek Farm held a recognized show, so I stopped by to capture a few images.

Loved this horse's earnest expression.

Waiting their turn to jump.

My favorite pair of the day.

Cloud's Herd in Peril

Hello all, today's post was supposed to be the winner of the cowgirl necklace, I will post that next. Now, I like to keep my blog light and fluffy, so that it is fun to visit. But once in awhile I pull out the old soapbox,{mine is decoupaged with horses} to let you know when foul play is afoot {yes I've been working on my murder mystery.}
The bureau of land management is planning a September 1st round-up of Cloud's herd in the Pryor mountains. Many fear the worst for the herd, and the horses removed. The data says the numbers are not high enough for any removal and that the range is in better shape than it has been in many years. The round-ups alone are dangerous and six horses died in the Challis herd round-up. Please visit The Cloud Foundation

Life Quote

" Who finds a faithful friend, finds a treasure." --- Old proverb

Photo is from my collection. Notice not only the dog, but the pidgeon on the rump of the donkey. The back of the image notes that it is "Orlando" and his pets.
