“Late, one September evening, I led my boys out to pasture. I could just run them out, but then I would be missing an opportunity to spend more quality time with them. We work on a few little things as we go along that add up over time. As I dropped their leads, I tended to opening the gate and when I turned around the light was hitting them just right and it took my breath away. I smiled and smiled and thanked God Almighty for gracing me with such incredible beauty. Both Palee and Tres were so serene, as if they could have been content to stand there forever, ground tied and patient.”
