When Insomnia Strikes...

.... write a blog post, and maybe you'll start to feel sleepy....

That's what I am telling myself tonight as I tap on the keys, ignoring my normal mantra of "just close your eyes and even though you aren't asleep, you are getting some rest".

While trying to fall asleep, I remembered that it's almost Thursday and time for two of my favorite blog memes - This or That Thursday and Rural Thursday. So I'm up to post some more photos I took at the new stable.

While the last stable housed only eight horses, there are at least 20 at this one. Each visit affords us a new encounter with these beautiful animals. I called this one "Blondie", although her official name is "Whitey". I have been informed she's a bit mean, but she seemed OK with me (although I didn't get too close).
OK, maybe she's got some attitude in her eyes...

Fences everywhere - I love fences and leading lines...
Down the Valley Road

A windmill to remind us it's always blowing on the prairie:
Westerly Wind

Finally, a bit of what I'll call "altered reality":
Long Shadows of Sunset #stable #barn #shadow
Because I'm really only 5'3" tall....

There, I actually do feel more tired now....

I guess I don't know exactly where you live, Shirley -- but I always enjoy your rural captures. Especially the horses. And I'm honored you enjoy Rural Thursdays -- I admire your photography. :)

Nice job, Shirley! The horse does look like she has a bit of attitude in that shot. Love your fence photo and the windmill is beautiful!
