Barn Charm & dVerse Open Link Night "Etched"


Etched

Etched against tomorrow,
back straight, gaze forward,

hers is a portrait
of youth-filled certitude

every dream
is feasible.

Margaret Bednar, March 26, 2013


My daughter warming up in the practice ring before her first horse show.  Isn't our Oberon handsome?    Yes, he's a little bit loved :)

This is for Barn Charm & dVerse Open Link Night.

Hey Margaret, your daughter did really well for her first competition. Your/her Oberon is a pretty horse. Does he have a name (of course he does)?

I like horses. I rode my Minnie, a white horse with lots of grey little spots, to high school for my first two years. We had a barn there for Min to stay in.

Whatever happened to youth-filled certitude? Why is it that as we get older we stop dreaming and stop believing that amazing things can happen to and be done by people just like us?

Beautiful poem and photgraphs, Margaret.

Loved this. All of it: the words, the sentiment and the picture.

This is beautiful, Margaret. Your poem conveys so much; but adding in the photos makes this post a WOW. Good luck to your daughter.

So wonderful to be witness to a champion in the making. It would be more thrilling for a champion's mother when the time comes. Best of luck for the future! Thanks for sharing, Marge! The pic in the stable is brilliant! So also Oberon!

Thank you, everyone! This past weekend was so fun and I've been outside so much this past week at the barn... brushing his winter coat (don't EVER wear chapstick or lipstick when de-shedding a pony ... it isn't a pretty look :)
