    Default The "I love fall" thread!

    Fall is my favorite time of year around horses. The days are cool yet beautiful, the light is yellow and gorgeous, and the horses are at their best after a summer in work. It doesn't get much better. I really enjoy seeing the horses blast around happily after watching them mope in the summer heat and bugs. Share pics/clips/stories of you and your ponies enjoying the fall!

    I love fall but don't tell that to our very furry pony who started growing her fur fervently in August. After a 30 min ride today she looked like she'd been in a 300 mile endurance ride Near 80s today, gonna be in the 60s later this week. Crazy temperature swings, that's what fall is like here in VA!

    I love it so much that I take 2 weeks vacation every year! My birthday and my wedding anniversary are in the last 2 weeks of September, and it's usually the best weather of the year. This year, though, it's been rainy and muggy, and I have no doubt that the second I go back to work it will be 65-70, sunny and low humidity.
    Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

    lucky ducks! Its still in the 70's here with the threat of rain which means CRAZY humidity (96% tomorrow). I went to teach a lesson today and my girls were dying! Were all praying for fall weather

    Ha! My boys (horses) all have their gorgeous sleek shiny fall supercoats and the fuzzy pony looks like dead winter has set in.

    It is her first winter with us, she obviously didn't get the memo that I am happy to provide her with all the pretty coats she desires -- she doesn't need to grow her own. Darn!

    I'd love fall a lot more if it hadn't been pouring down rain for the past... what, week? Grr.

    I'm jealous. Fall is my favorite season and ... well, the weather hasn't been cooperating. It is so humid and wet and the bugs.are.not.dying! I feel like I was transplanted to a rainforest lately I can't wait for the crisp, cool air and fall colors and light.

    Beautiful pictures, dorytuo!

    I'd love fall a little more if it didn't get dark so early! I rode as soon as I got home from work yesterday and took a short trail ride to cool out and it was dark by the time I turned him back out!

    Love this weather. Especially after what seemed like the HOTTEST summer ever. We took the jumpers out for a two-hour trail ride on Sunday with the dogs. They all seemed to love it. My husband and I did, too. The horses didn't even spook at the cows we had to ride through on part of the trail. (though my Malinois did start to chase one before I caught him...shhhh. Bad doggy.)

    I don't have pictures and I didn't even have hot weather here in Ireland but my horses are just having the best time the past couple of weeks. There are great little professionals under saddle but when they are outside the tomfoolery has been hysterical. And the lovely coats that have come in are gorgeous. Yeah, I'm gonna clip it all off because I don't have a free hour on each to dry off properly after working, but for now the velvet dark shiny coats are gorgeous!

    I love fall!
