The other day, I took a drive with my baby boy to play with the horses. We take this drive sometimes, the unpaved road. It’s a bit bumpier but far prettier. Late day, the mini horses are grazing at the back of the pasture so we can see them up close on this road. My boy just loves them.
On the other side of the road are more ranches. The sun sinks further to the south, the sky is bluer. I never realized the beauty until today when I stopped the pick-up on the side next to a cattle guard and lost myself in the moment. The baby sat quietly for I think he too realized the beauty of this place.
A few cows walked past along the barbed wire fence; a young calf looking our way as he trotted ahead. I took a sip of sweet tea from my blue cup, put the truck into gear and drove into the evening.
