The adventures of Gilly the rescue horse and his side kick and partner in crime, Pokey the donkey.


Being with a horse is a journey that never ends. What they have to teach us is amazing; but we must quiet our mind to hear them. ~ jca

Ride in the woods................

Gilly and I went for a ride in the woods on the old road that runs through our property. I turned Pokey loose to see what he would do, he is checking out the road that we were on.
Pokey is just to the left of the camera, you can just barely see him in the corner. Gilly was looking ahead to see where Lucy and Gonzo were. Gonzo is standing in the middle of the road looking pretty stupid for some reason. Lucy is always on the hunt for rabbits, squirrels or anything that moves............deer she has given up on, they run too fast!
Pokey thinks this is alright, he gets to nibble on grass along the way......
I held the camera out to the side and snapped this picture, surprised it turned out. Pokey was trailing a little behind Gilly...............

We came upon some thick grass here and Pokey ran ahead to get some of it; this is a nice open area in the road and lots of tall grass to the left.I am sure that Gilly is saying, "Hey, how come I don't get to stop and eat like the kid does?" He sure wanted to stop and eat but not while we are riding............he has a job to do and eating along the way isn't it. Grabbing a bit along the way turns into a bad habit so we won't start it, then it won't be a problem. Sorry Gilly, you have to wait until we get back home.

Beautiful pictures, Jane. I envy you the chance to ride down a country lane and enjoy the peacefulness. Gilly and Pokey looked to be having a good time but I feel for Gilly that Pokey got to eat and Gilly had to wait. I understand why, though.

That blue gazing ball is striking. I've never seen one with the swirls either. And the flowers are beautiful.
