Sid....Joy In The Morning

Yesterday morning, as the rising sun turned the eastern sky to crackling embers,

I was finishing up morning chores...

and had the pleasure of watching Sid and his pony race around the upper pasture
waiting for Becky to bring him home to the barn for breakfast...
(please excuse the wobbly video...I shot this from quite a distance away using a zoom lens)

Sid and Shirley spend their nights in this pasture,
with old Duffy, Becky's elderly retired horse, in the next pasture over from them.

Each morning, Becky gathers all three and leads them back to the barn for breakfast.

If you have followed my blog for a long time,
you will remember that Becky is Hubb's sister, an equine vet.
Her horse, Sid, was an off-the-track thoroughbred rescue
who came to the farm sad and skinny.
He had never known the joy of just being a horse.
With love, kindness, and many hours of mutual training,
Becky has turned him into a magnificent, enthusiastic eventing horse.
They have shared many happy and amazing adventures over the past few years...
truly, the happiest of happy endings!
