Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand


Our GRANDfather horse holds a special position of respect in our herd. He has lead with kind fairness, and now we all want to return the favor, we all want to protect him. Cold weather is cruel to old bodies, and in the afternoon light, a young gelding stands watch while the sun warms his GRANDfather bones.

Nothing so precious, nothing so grand.

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. No psych, definitely not high-tech.

This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  1. I, too, have a grandfather gelding. He is still very vibrant at 29. He luxuriates in a thick gray fur coat and is still a very easy keeper. He runs the dry lot with his two friends Kate, a 40+ yr old pony mule, and the youngster, Sage, my more than fluffy Haflinger mare. Kiss your grandfather on the nose and I will do the same!
