Every fall it takes about
a whole month to clear up the leaves.
This is one of our typical fields.
This was a foggy morning
in November of 2002.
Conquistador has a few maple trees
in his field which give him nice shade
in the summer.
I can clean up the leaves in his field and
two days later it looks exactly the same.
Notice all the leaves still on the trees.
RainDancer loves to lie in the dry leaves.
Naturally they stick to his fibre.
Sometimes it looks as if the leaves
have been sprayed on.
Occasionally we can get creative with cria names
and Autumn Leif’s name was a natural.
decided to try
Wandering Star also picked up
a leaf under the watchful eye
of his mother.
The one worrying thing about the autumn
is that some years we get some big winds.
One year a couple of maples fell over
just missing the fence and the wood shed.
The good part was that it landed
right on a pile of wood waiting to be split!
