This is what I see every morning on our farm. Three of our four horses waiting for grain. The white one is Luna. The long white blaze is Maple and the short red one is Bean. Bean and Maple are Fox Trotter yearlings. They still have a year to go before we begin riding training. Maple and Bean get ponied along when we ride their moms. They get to see the world beyond the pasture and farm on these rides.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
