Happy Tuesday and More

Sweetie Pie is a 14 year old Percheron She use to be in a hitch traveling around the US in competition.  She was retired 10 years ago and came to live at YaYa Orchard as a brood mare. She  is the kindest old soul one could ever meet and the boss of the barnyard. She is one classy lady. Please visit Happy Tuesday and as always I like to remember the days of Tuesday Show and Tails.
We were able to feed her a carrot. She is a gentle horse. As a child I learned how to trust a horse from my grandmother's cousin. Mr. Krall took me to meet his horse and back then I fed that horse a sugar cube. Once they know you are not afraid they can become your friend. We enjoyed our visit to YaYa Orchard. The apple crop was not the best this year so we were unable to pick our own apples. But we tasted and purchased many apple delightful goodies.
If you read my post yesterday you may remember the big yellow house in a photo. We saw a lady walking from the house with a tray of brown paper bags filled with apple cider donuts. I am guessing they whip up the preservative free Apple Cider there too.
We bought donuts and cider and Red Apple Salsa. I would show a photo up close but we nearly polished it off so I will show you these.

Welcome to Colorado weather. We were in the 90's yesterday. Last night it rained all night long. Mid day today the snow started to fall. Back to 80 on SONday. Grateful that the moisture will hopefully help these wildfires surrounding us.
Weird weather patterns everywhere. We are use to it in Colorado and it cracks me up when people move here and complain. Go back where you were. You were probably happier.

Hello Anne. Oh, I LOVE apple cider donuts. They are SO YUMMY. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and commenting. I LOVE it when you come by. You are such a kind person and I truly thank you for caring. Hope you have a good rest of the week, with or without snow. The weather is crazy everywhere! Hugs. Susan

Sweetie Pie is adorable. I love horses and am not afraid of them. I used to ride in my younger years.

Love all the funnies and yes I remember Colorado weather.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous day, Anne. Big hug. ♥

I saw where it was snowing:) It is so hot and humid again here after a small touch of low humidity. It was nice but we knew it wouldn't last! It is what our weather is like and that's just the way it is. My Great-Nephew and his wife have a bunch of horses, they teach riding lessons and show them too. Their little 2 year old loves the horses and walks right up to them. He isn't afraid at all because he has been taught to be comfortable with them. Love that verse, HE is always with us... SO thankful! Enjoy your day dear Anne, HUGS!

I've never had an apple cider donut but it sure sounds delicious. That horse is beautiful. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

The donut looks so good! Yes, weather is crazy, ours is just not normal any more, either. Or what we thought of as normal, anyway.
