The Guardian's caption for this painting, Kōnosu Station by Eisen, says that "the traveller on the left is a mendicant monk wearing a tengai – a conical straw hat that obscured the wearer’s identity and symbolised detachment from a worldly life." I gotta get me one of those.

Oh, this is great - check out this visualization (Dressage Today).

Rode Hot Shot solo in the round pen for the first time :)
The middle picture is Aria forlorn - her bff Wremi left the ranch this morning, off to college with his owner. (She'll be fine - her owner rocks.)

Saw a coral snake crossing the road on the way over. It was bigger than I thought they got - maybe 18 inches? Bright, beautiful, scary.

Sweet old Champ

We had some clouds and drizzle and the temperature dropped to the 80s so we were able to do some groundwork this evening. I had a chopped-up carrot in a baggie in my cargo pocket and boy he knew it - remind me to leave those in the car until we're done from now on.
