Fall is on her way to north Texas, but she’s taking her time. School is in session and some of our caretakers are back in class. The horses are starting their short shed to ready for thicker coats. We are hoping for one more hay cutting as the days turn shorter and the nights get milder. It’s always a hot summer anywhere in Texas. Goodbye. So long. Farewell. We are looking forward to a quieter time and frisky mornings. Sweaters and hoodies. Many thanks to all of our owners and helpers for these wonderful horses we take care of everyday summer, winter, spring and fall. Here’s to colorful, falling leaves and beautiful old horses!
Rush had to be first in everything. First through the gate. First for feed. First for treats. First in the show ring. Rush was sound throughout his twenties in retirement — a bit antsy in case a horse or human beat him to something.
We loved you Rush for your wonderful cockeyed ears. For your “I’m always Rushing” to something. Elvis is still waiting and watching for you to rush around the live oaks in your pasture one upping him somehow – king of the hill up by the double ponds. You are first in our hearts, dear Rush. Gallop and jump to blue and blue and blue.
