It seems a rarity that we have snow so early in the season. The past few years we have had snow in December but usually, it’s only a few inches. On Sunday, December 1st this year we were clobbered with an unusually large storm that dropped about 20″ of snow on by Tuesday morning.
Once it stopped snowing I took the blankets off the boys. They have halfway decent winter coats…could still use a bit more fuzz but I’ll take what I can get.
Within minutes of being naked and free they took to play! These are the last photos I took of Blade and how wonderful it is that they were joyful ones. This is the Blade that we will remember.
Tiger had a blast letting loose and getting some energy out.
and Blade enjoyed letting the snow fly!
Together they were a sight to see. Strong and powerful. Beautiful. Glorious. Happiness.
They were also very silly.
If you’re overwhelmed by the beauty and grace let’s bring you down just a moment and get real. Tiger showed his goofball side a little with his best derp face.
Bardi also had some fun in the snow. We actually needed to snow-blow a path for him because he had so much trouble getting around. Something about a black and white dog against the pure white snow looks so good.
Blade was an amazing horse with a huge heart.
These are the memories that I will cherish for life.
These are the memories that I will remember Blade by.
