Here's the thing about November: it's a transitional month.  Because it bridges the gap between fall and winter, it can provide you with a real mixed bag of  weather.   I generally think of this month as being all greys and browns and darkness.  But it's not, really.  This weekend we experienced a little of everything.   A few moments of snow-globe swirls:

Some wind-less sunshine, perfect for doing a little training of giant baby horses:

"I don't like to be trained.  Look at the gear they make me wear.  It's positively undignified".

And the proverbial greys and browns.  The farmers who lease our land decided to fertilize and plow.  It looks like a giant fudge cake right now (but smells oddly like salty beef boullion).  I hope you all had a good (and varied ) weekend!

Love the pictures. I think your horse looks very dignified!

November even looks beautiful at your place. To me there is nothing more wonderful than farmland...

Giant baby horsey looks great!

Fall for me is my favorite time. Yes..mostly because of the Thanksgiving feast..but also because of the smell in the air.. Of course, we don't have horses, so the smell of *my* air is probably much different than the smell of *your* air.. LOLOL
