Story A Day Progress...And Ponies

The first week of Story A Day is over and I did pretty well. It wasn't easy, of course, and I had to burn the midnight oil a few times, but I did it. Of course, I admit that I'm one of those people who always has more things to do than I have time for, and my "to do list" is rarely ever complete.

The stories I wrote this week are:

May 1st: "SALIGIA" (horror);

May 2nd: "Solstice" (fantasy, but with a little sci-fi crossover);

May 3rd: "The Emperor's New Clothes" (psychological thriller);

May 4th: "Human Error" (apocalyptic horror).

I'm only doing Story A Day on a Monday through Friday basis, so I took the weekend off and went fishing.

This year, I remembered to stop and take photos of one of my favorite "points of interest" around the lake. It's some sort of a horse ranch, which is unusual enough in my area, but what makes these horses really interesting in how unusual they are. They are bigger than most ponies I've seen, but they are very stocky and square-jawed, have ridiculously thick manes and tales, and grow one heck of a winter coat, which you can see some of the remnants of in the picture. Some of the others had more of their winter coats left, and it's really woolly and makes them look almost prehistoric.

One of these days, I hope a rancher is out there working when I come by on my way to the fishing area. Then I'll be able to find out more about these horses. For now, I will have to be satisfied just admiring them from a distance.
