Perfect Timing

We are welcoming Traveler back into the fold again, after being gone 3+ years.



It appears his mission in life is to be best friends to young boys who love to ride.

So suffice to say, we are excited about him rejoining our herd.

Russ enjoys a ride back in 2007, testing him among mares, post-gelding procedure.



Traveler's timing to return is perfect,
as you will also be seeing Jordan hanging around more too.



We love having him visit, and enjoy his boyish ways.



And have grown fond of his heart-warming smile.



He enjoys his time with Russ, learning how to navigate the waters of life.



And learning the skills to slow down,
 to hear the tiniest drip from the paddle...
and see the world come alive before him, as an extraordinary young man.



There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3

Lord, we thank you for your perfect timing...always.

Until tomorrow, God willing.

So nice that Jordan is able to get a different perspective on life at your place. The quiet perspective...

Thank you Farmchick. Yes, it's quiet. No TV, no phone, no electrical gadgetry of any nature. Imagination and nature rule...~:)

What an amazing post~ the pictures, the words, the boy, the horses. Life is all about enjoying the little details and standing in awe of the God who gives them to us.

Thank you Terri...needless to say, I always think of Trent, when I post about Jordan. Sometimes I wish we had never "broken down" and got Internet on our property ~ we did so only 2 years ago, while hosting a big event. But then, I would have never met the wonderful farm folks who Blog about their lives...and connect with mine.

Traveler looks great - I'm sure you already know that was the name of Robert E. Lee's flea-bitten gray horse.
