Splendid Sunrise

I decided to take my camera along with me to feed the horses this morning. Here is the beautiful sunrise as I leave my house and look to the east.

Here is a nose full of Nadia and little Yalla! in her whiskers.Every morning I see this crow around the barn area. He often flies over to sit in this tree while I am around and then he flies back to the horses. More on him later.
Isn't this a strange cloud formation?
Nadia has the cutest little ears, doesn't she? And just look at that sky behind her!Buddha sits on the back of the couch every morning just waiting for me to come back from the barn. He always gives me a high five or two before he lays back down
and begins to groom himself. According to legend, the Japanese Chin is supposed to be related to the cat. I believe it.
Then, it's off to the bathroom to get ready for work, grab some food for lunch, pour myself another cup of coffee, and head out to the car.

I've been getting a lot of colorful sunrise and sunsets shots lately too. We can actually see the sky now. For so many weeks there was this heavy gray cloud layer just hanging over us. It think it makes us notice and appreciate the sunrises and sunsets more.

A chin! I have always been fascinated with this breed but there are no reputable breeders close.

Cold here, should be one degree Friday with more snow coming but I shall not complain, I would rather have my weather than some that is further north.

Great pictures!

Hi Val...I was over at Paint Girl's and had to come to take a look at Yalla. She's grown too! Foals are fun aren't they!? Why do Arabs put their noses straight up to the's so funny! They're an athletic breed! Pretty too!
