Farewell September


Maple LeavesTurning Leaves

The last days of September have slipped away, and Fall is officially here.  The weather continues to smile on us with chilly nights, but mild, sunny days.  The rain, which has drenched so much of the country, still eludes us, but I suppose it will come eventually – and we will probably complain!  Because of the hot, dry summer, this doesn’t promise to be a very colorful Fall, but I am finding touches of reds and yellows here and there, and the farmer down the road has a bumper crop of pumpkins.

At about this time last year, Twiggy twice escaped from the pasture.  Apparently the grass there becomes less appetizing as the growing season ends, and what is on the other side of the fence is more tempting.  She has learned to lean on the fence until something breaks and she is free!  Consequently, we have now banned the horses from my neighbor’s pasture, where the fence is not electrified and are feverishly working to restring our aging hot wire, hoping that an occasional ‘zap’ will teach her more respect.

In another month, we will purchase large, round hay bales to give them something to chew on and keep them amused and out of mischief.
