On our last morning, we awoke to snow and the last of the several-times-a-day visits by the mule and seven horses, let loose the day we arrived, to graze anywhere they wished on the ranch, which is entirely fenced, with cattle guards at the roadways. They gave us a lot of enjoyment.
Joli the Dog was curious but somewhat afraid and not much interested in inter-species communication with the equines, and not at all the predator that she became when she caught sight or smell of the mule deer or white tails.
I've become interested in tiles, terra cotta, brick pattern design and other ornamentation on the brick buildings of St. Louis and have a second blog as of August 09 called St. Louis Mosaic at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are new here, you will find some tile pictures and other ornamentation from the past month, the origins of this interest.
If you are only looking for ornamentation, you might as well just go on over to St. Louis Mosaic, where I am adding new stuff all the time and bringing over copies of everything that's here as well.
