Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind

2016-02-04 13.58.04 (2)


State of mind: Here’s the last snow photo, it’s leap day, and we’re calling it lucky. The light is coming back warm. We’re paused and cogitating; coiling our strength because this season will bring changes. But the hibernating season is over…

The hairs are loose and we are itchy. Very, very itchy…

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)

  1. Ah yes – the itchy season! I remember it well – the hair that finds itself EVERYWHERE!!! Places where you cannot imagine how it would get there. But the last couple years of Chico’s life – I had to clip him twice a year – he didn’t shed – didn’t actually have cushings – but took meds for the symptoms. Actually, the act of clipping also accentuated the hair “travel”, too.

  2. I like seeing the wild birds picking up the horses hair and imagining them snuggling their babies in to nice warm nests.
