I am leading Star, Lilly and Sweet Hija over to the Pecan Tree Pasture. They don’t really need my assistance to go over to the field, but on that day, the horses had not been there in several months and I wanted to walk with them. The photograph was snapped in February 2009. Hija was pregnant with Shiney and Fanny was behind Brenda who took the shot. She stands in the creek bed and is looking up the road to the pasture.
The gate to the Pecan Tree Pasture was closed and I had to open it for them.
Their habit pattern is to go over to the far field and browse on grass most of the day, then near sundown that will come running at a gallop to get their grain in the stables. Since this photograph was taken, I have kept Lilly close to the stable because of her age. With Lilly back at the stables, they will not linger in the Pecan Tree Pasture all day long, but come back early to be with Lilly.
Brenda entitled this photograph, “Over the Hill.”
