Come with me for an early morning drive into the country. One good friend is already in my car, but there is room for all of you,I'm sure.
We head north out of Morden, just looking for something of interest to photograph.
The first stop is at an old abandoned railway trestle.Many of you will recognize this place.It is about 12 miles north and west of Morden, but driving along with friends as company, the road seems short.
The blue sky makes for a great photo opportunity.
Heading even further north down a country road, we see some horses. Normally I don't get terribly excited about horses, I know, I'm different, but on this morning the sunlight makes these animals look spectacular. Of course, what's not to love about a sweet foal? He is a cutie.
When Mama noticed that we had stopped, she quickly guided him further to the back of the fence and safety, in her mind.
One young foal had obviously not gotten the memo, as he calmly slept while the other horses trotted away. His Mama, was not too happy about that and quickly made her way back to his side and the nap was over.
Mama and baby trotting off to the safety of the barn at the other end of the pasture, but not before I was able to get some pictures.
Something To Think About:
Just as these mares were trying to get their foals to safety, God says in His word:
I am your shelter and a place of safety from your enemies. Psalm 61:3
