I Heart Macro: New Friends

Weathered, Magdalena, NM, June 2011
Didn't get to pick up the camera until this evening, but it was worth the wait to get these shots for the week's I Heart Macro post. The kids and I went out to the property to visit our friends' mule and horses, who are grazing out there for a while... a long while, I hope. They're warming up to us, and we'll start riding them soon -- a fair trade for the forage and running room, don't you think? We'll all start on Goliath the mule (a gentle giant) and switch to the horses as we get more comfortable. I can't wait -- I haven't ridden in a few years and haven't ridden regularly since I was a teenager. Just being around horses again, close up and personal... oh yes, it's heavenly.
