Freedom!!! Winston cantering in his field after being confined for a few days due to weather.

Winston has been contained to his dry lot for a few days following rain and wet ground. Today, I let him out as you can see, he enjoyed his freedom!

I love that he has his field and I’m trying SO hard to keep it “nice.”  I don’t want it to turn into a dirt lot.  I don’t let him go out when it’s raining or wet because I don’t want him tearing it up.  I’ve tried turning him out in another field be he gets upset when the other horses go where he can’t see them.

Here are some more pics of  my stallion… I just love this horse!!!  He’s everything I’ve always wanted in a horse- super mover, well put together, athletic, personality ++++, awesome disposition, and more.  He’s usually successful at bringing a smile to my face!  LOVE this horse!!!  Now… to just get him broke!!!   No husband to watch kiddo has made it impossible for the moment.

Zoom.... pretending he's a racehorse...

Looking back at me

He’s done playing and he looks back to see what kiddo and I are up to.  This is the same tree where I buried Winnie (Kit Kat & Toby (Stray Gray) are buried there as well.  You can see the flowers on the left side if you look carefully.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
