The View From Here

A tour of my place in New Mexico wouldn't be complete without throwing in the most important the "four-leggeds" anyway...the barn.

I feast my eyes on it as I walk from the kitchen or mud ("dust") room of the house to the barn. We'll do a full circle drive so I can turn the truck and horse trailer combo around, the hay can be delivered easily, etc.

Look right and I see the mini horse side. Each little horse will have his own back door. It'll open into a run and the run will open into a big pasture or two.

On the left side of the barn I have an area for parking carriages, a big space for hay and a stall for "Big Horse", as he's called now. I don't know what else to call him since I haven't met him yet...what I mean is, I haven't bought him yet. He'll have a good home waiting for him when he comes to live with me.

The back of the barn opens east to the morning sun and more pasture area. From there I can drive or ride forever. The national forest is my next door neighbor and totals over a million acres. I'm guessing it'll take me awhile before I have it all traveled.

I met this little guy the last time I visited the barn. He said he'd take care of things 'til I get moved there, permanently.

Thanks, neighbor.

I just discovered your blog and have been catching up on your place. It's just lovely.

My father lives in New Mexico and I grew up in El Paso (so close we considered it more like New Mexico than Texas).

The skies in New Mexico are incredible. Only there do the clouds look like sailing ships.

I look forward to keeping up with your journey as you get closer to moving.

Folks following my blog...
