|The August Moon Over Ravenseyrie After Sun-up|
At the present time,
Since I could bring no offering,
See Mount Tamuke!
Here are brocades of red leaves,
As a tribute to the gods.
--Sugawara no Michizane
Here August is almost September and I have really no good offering for the blog - not for lack of ideas, but for an inability to compose things in a fashion that lives up to the magic of the Sorraia horses and Ravenseyrie. So, like Sugawara no Michizane's poem, please accept these glorious August views in lieu of a proper descriptive entry in this Journal of Ravenseyrie.
|Sorraia Stallion, Legado|
It is easy to feel one lives in an enchanted place when rainbows are frequent visitors:
|Rainbow over Ravenseyrie|
Back in August of 2012, day two of a young Sorraia colt named Capaz (Interessado x Pinoteia)...trying hard to find an escape from pesky, pesky flies:
How special it feels to be walking out over the range and have a Raven circle overhead:
Back in August 2013 for this glimpse of the young, awkward Sorraia stallions and the older boys in their favourite shady spot with a good breeze helping keep the flies from completely tormenting them:
Bi-coloured manes on both light and dark grullo stallions at Ravenseyrie:
|Light Grullo, bi-coloured mane|
|Dark Grullo, bi-coloured mane|
A new mineral block gets delivered to the Ravenseyrie mares living on the Twinravens range - how quickly they made use of it!
