I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Taking a blogging break

I am taking a blogging break after the freak accidental death of my chestnut mare, Beauty, this morning. At least she didn't suffer and went quickly. There were no thrashing marks in her corral. For the full story, please visit http://deserthorses.blogspot.com/. If you can, and want to, please make a donation to either SAFER or TB Friends in her name. Beauty was a slaughter feedlot rescue herself when she was an unbroke 2 year old. I helped train her and I rode her last summer. She was a wonderful, gentle animal that died way before her time. She was only 5 years old. I'm just not up to blogging right now. RIP Beauty 062509

So sorry to hear you lost your friend Beauty, at least you gave her 3 happy years. Bless you for rescuing her.

Thank you for your kind words. The dark mists that I've been living in lately are beginning to fade. It will take time. She was such a special creature.
