All to dreamy

My mini mammoth grumpy pony

After taking off Danny’s winter pjs, I caught my old Danny boy taking a gentlemen’s nap. Danny is known affectionately for his grumpy demeanour. He has never bitten or kicked anyone in his life though, the attitude is a complete act. He has taught many a child to ride in his lifetime. 25yrs young now he is.

As you can see below, the attitude changes to, “oh, ok because your my pet, I will allow you to scratch my neck, thankyou, now I love you”

Danny’s Dreamboat squint

He’s a funny sweet old boy.

Then, now that you have interrupted my nap, you obviously have nothing better to do I will now have a roll & get as grotty as I please.

Really Danny

If their is a grotty gentleman type Danny would wear the crown. No I didn’t clean him off he & I both actually know grotty is the best stinging insect repellent out there.

After my pony moment I began working on the landscaping of the front house yard. I could hear a beautiful bird song in the distance. I had never heard this one before, so I downed my tools & out our little house yard gate I went.

Venturing into the 1 acre woods. It has the sweetness of Winnie the Pooh meets the mischief of Blinky Bill. Where I have started trails for walking or riding it always makes me smile. I found the birds but couldn’t get close enough for a pic, I will endeavour to upload their song we’ll see. Ok so I’m unable to do that, it was such a lovely sound (really it was) & from the dance the male was doing I suspect a type of bower bird but they were both black, it was just beautiful.

Caught up in the beauty of the moment I decided to say Hello to the tree’s, after all Winnie the Pooh said hello to the trees, this is his woods so we better be polite.

We are hugely blessed to have all this beauty on our land.

I call them little wispering trees, cause their so wispy & delicate & sweet.

There are a couple of different types of these trees they create such a romanticism to their environment.

Little pockets of soft sweet shade.
Beneath the giants.
Beautiful Vertigo
There is even a story in the narly scary dark woods.
The dead trees look like a giants dinner fork.

So many stunning angles, I love the sun reflecting off the white of the tree where the bark has peeled back. I remember many a night ride the whites of trees like these glowed in the moonlight, lighting up the forest track for us & the ponies.

Often light the way.

I love these trees for, the curtain rods, tee-pees, firewood, berms, the shelter & feed for all the Blinky Bills & Winnie Pooh mates, the nesting & resting places, the climbing fun for all the wildlife friends. From Kangaroo, Koala, Wallaby to Kookaburra & all his bird mates, goanna’s, cicada’s, even echidna who loves on the ground to forage & if you stand really quiet & still you can hear the quiet hum of the bees when the tree tops have blossoms.

Even artwork

Talented trees.

The next time your out & about & you bump into a tree please say Gday from me & try to imagine all the fun it can be.

    1. Thankyou my friend, there was a lot of beautiful vertigo going on, lol. One day I will take pics of riding the horses through it. Our makeshift arena is at the very top of our property so it is a beautiful stroll up to it. Have a great pony hugging tree lovin weekend.


    1. So true mate, I get a little passionately opinionated about the subject of trees & our environment, lol. I have done a couple of oil paintings of landscapes when I was younger & I remember my favourite part was the detail in the trees, so many colours & textures. Thanks for dropping by, Have a great adventurous weekend.

    1. lol I had a giggle as I could so picture us on a trail ride with our horses having grand wonderful fun talking to the trees & knowing for sure they were talking back & of course the horses would join in on the convo as well & we would be covered in mud, I’m not sure it would be classed as a quiet relaxing ride. lol. Anytime your up for it count me in. Have a mud puddle tree chatting horsey fun weekend my friend.

  2. Danny looks like such a sweetheart ❤ Those light ponies have to protect themselves, its like they are worse off with the insects than other horses. I hope you get some rain soon. It is wonderful that you have so many trees on your property. I love trees!

    1. Thankyou our trees are stunning & our Danny, he is a little precious, it’s funny, in our climate everyone has more trouble with the darker coloured horses getting bug bit. Mind you I don’t think any bug would be game to bother Danny even if they tried. lol. I am waiting for the water truck guy at the moment we ran out last night, oops, thankfully we have the dam for animals & the loo. lol
      Have a magnificent week head.
