Bliss: perfect happiness; great joy

Oxford Dictionary

This week Lindy Low LeCoq has given us the photo challenge of Bliss. It will surprise no one, who knows me and my blog, to see these photos taken on the forest trails with Biasini. This for me, and I think for Biasini, is bliss. We have had days of lessons in the arena and Coach Belinda putting us through our paces. So it was time for something different .We have had the first snowfall of the winter. Not too much just a skiffer . But enough to show up the coyote tracks along the paths we chose. They like the trails too!

Biasini enjoyed our walk in the snow. He has snow pads and corks on his front shoes so he is quite sure footed in the snow. As we headed back to the barn he slowed down to a very slow walk. I think he was sorry our trail ride was over.

Thank you Lindy for this challenge. It is nice to respond to a challenge that is uplifting and happy. If you would like to see other responses to this challenge click here .

    Who doesn’t enjoy a forest trail – and the snow makes it soft and quiet. No wonder Biasini slowed down.

    Fresh powder, top to bottom, the best snow for a trail ride. The worst, new snow over old snow.
