The Friends’ Final Frolics

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.

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.
