The autumn weather has been absolutely wonderful in Maine this year, giving me plenty of horse time. I have had several really nice rides on my Ah-D, even fitting in an after-work ride or two. The foliage is spectacular this year. Some places are peak and some are gone by, but there are some places where bright red leaves are juxtaposed against bright green leaves, so there is more to come.

|Even though the forest floor is littered with leaves, there is plenty of green left to turn color over the next couple of weeks!|
I mentioned before that I have been putting in quite a bit of time on the Haflinger Nike who is staying at my house, and I have noticed this makes AhD crave my attention and ask to be picked when I come out to the pasture. What a rush! I love how he makes himself available, and I especially love how he hasn't been bratty at all, even when he has had time off. Could it be he is growing up?
|What a beautiful frame under this foliage! :)|
