Follow the Yellow Brick Road!

Zim in the pasture.
Indian Paintbrushes in the foreground, a strip of Buttercups where he is grazing.


 
 



 Sort of like following the yellow brick road in "The Wizard of Oz". :)


 

 
 
 Pretty but dirty from a good mud roll. Ah, spring!

Much prettier than standard yellow bricks!

MarmePurl said...

Morning Tex. Prettier than pretty pasture.

Lynn said...

Zim is so gorgeous..and it is like the yellow brick road, a lot tastier though. That barn/out building is a pretty impressive size...and I like the colour it goes well in the photo shoot :-)

Brk Trt said...

Looks like Zim saw the movie.
Wonderful photos.

William Kendall said...

A good mud roll is often just the right thing as far as he is concerned.

Now that's my kind of yellow brick road - absolutely lovely.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

He looks fantastic...mine would really show their muddiness- especially Grady who loves to roll more than any of the others. I love your red barn.

Birdman said...

What's the fascination with dogs, horses and mud? Is it all about flies? A good scratch? What is it?

Indrani said...

Looks grand with all the greenery around.

I have seen lots of buttercups, but never a "road" of them, perfect for Zim to walk along. Great barn, and the few pinks in the front too, just for a lovely contrast. You have spring for sure. Cheers, Jean.

LE CHEMIN DES GRANDS JARDINS said...

J'adore les chevaux même si je n'en possède pas. Qu'ils sont des chevaux de trait, de pure sang, des étalons, des poneys, ils sont tous leur beauté personnelle. Ce sont de bons compagnons de l'homme et ils l'ont toujours accompagné dans son histoire. Celui-ci a une musculature impressionnante, mais je suis certain que l'on peut l'approcher sans danger pour lui murmurer à l'oreille des mots amicaux.
Bravo pour ces superbes photos et à bientôt.
Bien amicalement.
Roger

Love the Yellow Brick Road reference...
Judy Garland was born in our nearest town.. her birth home is just up the road from us about 12 miles. Naturally, a small town tries to capitalize on that, and we have many Oz related celebrations & such. There is a yellow brick road (sidewalk) at the centerpiece park in town. AND yesterday I just finished reading a book written by a local gal I went to school with, her first novel - "Stealing the Ruby Slippers." They were stolen in town a number of years ago.
Zim is gorgeous! What a scene!

Mandy Southgate said...
