The colors, sights and smells of fall are now upon us here in Central, CA. Always my favorite time of year. The crisp coolness that surrounds you is invigorating and inspiring. I love walking with my mare in the evening, the ground crunches beneath her hooves and the colors that drape her thickening coat are saturated by the evening sunset. Tonight as she let out a faint whinney to the neighboring yearlings playing in the field, steam unfurled from her nostrils, and brushed across my cheeks. A warmth, a feeling, that makes the world right to me.
