“And the dust raised by my ponies was smoke from my altar, offered up to God above. …


“My ponies, sleek and dancing, were all a (wo)man would need. …


“You may see me in the dust that shimmers in the half light or hear me in the whisper of the grass so green and tall.”

~ Dave Stamey, “The Vaquero Song”

I love this song, about masters of horsemanship, and also that it honors the horses of those vaqueros.

Hi, Roy! You won’t have to worry about the gnats (!) as much as some biting flies. In some low places, mosquitoes are a bother. Looking forward to seeing you!
