  1. Nice pictures Pix! It’s so lush and green there, very UNlike here. Love that big horsy face. What’s the story on the horse? Is he yours or a friends? Is this the same horse that you always photograph? Just curious.

    1. Good Morning Deb! This horse is not mine, he is a school horse at a college in CH’s hometown. I visit there frequently. They have an excellent equestrian program. He is the one that I had on my old photo blog where I cropped the shot down to his soft old muzzle with the bit of hay hanging out of his mouth. He was being lunged by one of the college gals and I snapped the shot when she finished up. We have had lots of rain 🙂 So any news or pictures on the property? I am going to love it when you give your bit of country a name!

      1. Closing was changed from Monday until Friday. Makes me crazy. I don’t know why they drag their feet… It’s been a little tricky getting a property like this one bought. I’ll be glad when it’s all over and we are moved in. I’ll be able to relax my brain.

        1. I don’t think there is another thing on earth that is more of a pain in the you know what than buying a house. Too many people trying to do too many things or not doing what they need to do or not knowing how to do what they need to do and not telling you when they are not getting it done. CH had to stay on the mortgage company constantly when we built our house in St. Louis. I will keep my fingers crossed that closing goes off without a hitch Friday.

    1. Good Morning Katie! You must be feeling a little better! Thanks for the visit. I am loving this Weekly Photo Challenge. It was what I was looking for when I was spinning my wheels at the other blog. I am hearing thunder. Dang. Enjoy your Friday, hope there is not a rumbly sky in your bit of MissouREE.

  2. Both photos are exquisite. I love the perspective you chose. It’s like saying, “Look! Hey, really look at this!” As you know, I have a softspot for horses (and that is one majestic horse), but the super green landscape is also very enticing. Outstanding job!

    1. Thanks Theresa! I appreciate the kind comment on the photos. Makes me smile that you like them 🙂 It is a beautiful horse. I get a kick out of taking pictures of gates and benches. We have some rumbly clouds going on here. Enjoy your Friday! We are going to get Izzy the Busy a new litter pan and some more toys. Toys, of course she has nothing, absolutely nada to play with. Kidding! We can’t walk anywhere without stepping on some cat thingie toy.

    1. Good Morning Patti! Said a little prayer this morning 🙂 You just might see us there, that would be fun! Do you think the Blacksmith could make me a hook for the kitchen trolley to hang my towels and stuff on. I bet he already has some. We will look, I am thinking you will have a table set up with his goodies to buy? The hook has to be blunt so Izzy the Busy doesn’t do anything crazy to herself. It is all rumbly here now and has been for about an hour.

    1. Thank you Janice! I read about Winter last night, well actually it was 2:30 in the morning and I thought it was a crazy time to comment because everyBODY would know I was on the blog that late! So, I will be visiting and leaving a comment at a more reasonable time this morning 🙂 I think he is a very interesting horse. He is a school horse at a college not far from us.

    1. Good Evening Maura! Me too, me too! I love horses mouths and I love to nuzzle up to their noses and let them breathe that wonderful warm horse breath right on my face. A nuzzling muzzle! Enjoy your weekend too!

    1. I am sorry I missed this comment! I am still learning this WordPress thing. The horse is a school horse at a college near to us. Very sweet horse and BIG! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit here at Under the Oaks. I think some how some way I have gotten all befuddled on answering your comments. I will get it figured out. I think.

  4. Hi Pix! You have some great photos and of subjects I’m familiar with, at least when I was younger. I opened a lot of gates for my dad when he was farming. The beautiful horse reminds me of Star, a horse we had with a white star on her forehead. It’s a nice day so far here, loving these cooler temps! Oh, glad you got a chuckle this morning. 😀 Have a nice weekend!

    1. I would love to hear more about Star. I opened a few gates for my GrandDad too. He plopped me on my first horse at three years old. Beautiful day today here in MissouREE! We got more than a chuckle! Oh.My.Gosh. Drive safe and have fun and eat good food and bring me back some birthday cake 🙂

  5. I love your pictures. And, if horse’s leather halters are like clothes for us, the older the softer. The best for me, though, is the profile of that horse, the sweetness of his eye and the pouting looking lower lip… I would smootch him on the tip of his nose!

    1. Hi Miriam! He does have a very sweet eye doesn’t he? You are a gal after my heart! I love to smooch those soft muzzles 🙂 I kind of think he had a pout going on that day, he didn’t behave well if I remember. I was just snapping pictures, I wasn’t working with him. I was an observer just enjoying being in the company of horsie-ness!

  6. Am just now getting around to looking at this — I wonder how many, many people have been back and forth through that old gate! I think horses are always photogenic(!) — and this one is no exception. Great photos!

    1. Hello Little Things of Life! Thank you for stopping by Under the Oaks 🙂 That gate has had lots of opening and closing. At Christmas I put a large wreath on it. I don’t know what it is about that gate but I love having it on our property. I think horses make beautiful subjects to photograph too!

  7. I love these photos. Thehummingbird is such an unusual color. Beautiful. We had one yesterday that had the most brilliant red throat. Of course I didn’t have my camera handy.
