Usually this topic would have me think of the babies around the farm, but not this year. I have two older dogs with health problems, one has the prefix “end stage”. Several outside animals are showing their age, like the Grandfather Horse. Being mindful of his mortality is a pinch and an ache, all the time. Simple actions become fine art in such a precious time.
I have a HOPE -as immense as an old horse’s heart- that this time of life is kind to all of us.

I can’t tell you how much your comments touch my heart, Anna Blake. I look forward to your blog like I look forward to Blue Mountains Thought for the Day. You really get it.
Thank you. Really.
I love reading your blog, it always makes me smile and think about my horses and dogs. I lost my Grandfather Horse almost 2 weeks ago, the hurt is still a constant but getting better. Thanks again for your blog.
So sorry for you loss, and happy for you to have had a horse so worthy of mourning.
Something so intrinsically wonderful about the old ones, dogs or horses. Time with them becomes more precious each day.
I love the photo and the prose, and I can’t help saying that I love the goat in the distance too.
