Once upon a time…
Sounds like the promise of a good story, right?
Ha! I shall leave you to be the judge of that. There are at least some good pictures!
Once upon a time, it rained and rained and created all kinds of mud all over the state of Texas. And everywhere else across the land. A gal named Avery was kinda busy and losing her mind for lack of riding time.
What is that? You have heard this one? No, no, no. The ending is good. Just stick with it. OK. Where was I? Oh ya…
Then it got cold while it continued to rain. That gal named Avery became even more busy (in a good way) and wondered if she would ever be able to really ride her horses again or write to her dear readers. Please forgive that gal named Avery for falling off the face of the earth and going MIA. Time kept passing her by.
This is where it gets good.
Then one fine day, spring appeared. The rains let up. The mud dried. The horses started to lose their winter coats. The pecan trees started to bud. All of a sudden, the stars aligned and the time was right. That gal named Avery loaded up that dog named Darcy and booked it out of town. She rode by herself. She rode with important people in her life. They rode. And that is what they did. And it was glorious.
The horses lost more hair.
Darcy took some naps when she was not running or getting dirty.
They rode by the river.
They rode under the clouds and across green pastures.
They rode down to the river on the beach.
The sun came out and sunsets were watched and it was magical in more ways than one.
They rode under the trees, over logs, and among favorite blue flowers down in the river bottom listening to the breeze and the light rain in the leaves.
They watched a little rain storm roll by and felt the drops cool their skin with the threat of the last cold snap.
Then more rain and wind and cold came. But that did not stop them. Still they rode.
It got even colder, but fun was still had by all.
Manes and pony tails went everywhere.
And that is what they did.
Then all was right in the world again.
They could not be more thankful or blessed.
Best story you have ever heard, right?!
I knew it.
How is it already April?! APRIL!!!
I am back, y’all, I promise.
Walk in love, dear readers, and I will talk to you soon.
