Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse


Sometimes I see a father playing with his child, tossing her in the air and catching her, holding her tight to his chest. Then my heartbeat feels tight in my own chest and I think of Spirit. He did that toss and catch with me. –Anna Blake, Stable Relation

He’s old and sway-back, he casts a long shadow, but he never stands alone. My Grandfather Horse is more than a muse; part of him is in everything I write. Never want to miss a chance to say thank you. Do you owe a debt to a horse?

(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.)

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. Congrats on the book. My equine muses are my first horse and the one with me in my gravatar, both now gone.


  2. I solemnly believe that any one who has had the privilege of spending some time with a horse owes them a bit of something. Very sweet of you to dedicate a novel to the experience. ☺
