Subject:Froday and other.
Time:08:20 pm

Doing a bit more photo-sorting and thought I'd share a couple of pics I took about two years ago when we were having a bit of warm weather, unlike this year's pathetic 'summer'! One of the places where we sometimes go for a meal out has a field with a couple of horses, they've been there for years and we've never known their names but we always go to say hello to them. This particular day they were wearing the latest in horse fashion. You'll all be wearing one tomorrow!!

Horses are tormented by flies in warm weather and it's nice to know the owners care enough to protect them. Very fetching!


This isn't as cruel as it looks - the horse can see perfectly well through it:


Today is, of course, Froday! And as I've just found out it's also the birthday of the_mad_hobbit I thought I'd dedicate this pic to her. Possibly the sweetest of all Frodo/Sam pics!



Our daughter's baby is due on Sunday though I have a feeling she will go over this date. As you can imagine, we're all on tenterhooks and I'm finding it hard to concentrate on anything. I get butterflies every time I think about it:)

Lovely horses and even more lovely hobbits.
First children are often late. So you may need patience. Not easy! All the best to you & the rest of the family. *hug*

Many thanks Ambree. Yes, I believe first children are often late - but she was four weeks early (and she was my first)!! And apparently I was two weeks early - but as she is due tomorrow she's already broken the family tradition:)

I've never seen these horse summer fashions before, and I used to live on a horse farm! That is very clever. I'm sure the horses are grateful -- even if the headgear does look a little bit stuffy, they don't have to worry about the hateful flies.

Best wishes to your daughter & all of you!

Many thanks:)

It was a bit of a shock when we first saw the horses in those get-ups but we quickly realised why, of course.

PS: Nothing to do with this post but for ages I've been meaning to tell you how much I enjoy reading your Tumlr. I don't have an account there myself, don't think I could manage another one and I'm not too sure how it works though I am thinking of joining just so I can 'like' your posts!! I love the little comments addressed to Elijah at the end of some of your posts;) Love all those gifs too! Btw, I can confirm that the pic you posted today is indeed from E3 2004:)

lol! I love the one that hangs on the horses ears and then drapes over its face. I'm glad they don't have to deal with the flies so much this way. My father used to live in horse country, and I loved going around and visiting different horses and other livestock when I visited him. The horses always loved coming up to us and saying 'hi'. :)

Best wishes to you and your daughter, dear.

Yes, for some reason it makes me think of something a court jester would wear!! I've always loved horses and used to ride when I was much younger.

Many thanks for your best wishes:)

Gosh, I've never seen anything like what those horses are wearing. But if a horse will tolerate it, I think it's a wonderful idea. Flies can just about drive a horse crazy.

I can just imagine you jumping every time the phone rings, hoping it will be the call that tells you you're a grandmother. :>)

What a beautiful photo of Sam and Frodo. Rach will love it because Sam is her favorite LOTR character and Sean is her favorite actor.

>>Flies can just about drive a horse crazy.<<

I know, they're a constant torment to them even in the mildest of weather.

It is a really nerve-wracking time at the moment - you reach a stage where you just can't imagine it actually happening!!

Yes, I know Rach is a great Sean/Sam fan - I've always been very fond of that pic and I'm sure she has too:)

Thanks for the pics; I too am glad the horses' owners want to try and protect them from nasty flies!

That's one of my favourite Frodo/Sam pics, it's beautiful!

Hope all goes well with your daughter, the baby and the birth. Please let us know, thanks... *hugs*

those are some clever coverings for the horses. if they could talk i'm sure they'd thank their owners. :)

i had no idea it was rach's birthday. she sneaked one in on me.

your grand-baby is probably here by now though it is sunday here. best of luck to her and i'm sure you'll be posting photos soon.
