There are times when I need to check on the horses after dark. I have found when I don't take a flashlight it can actually aid my way to the pasture gates. There is often just a glimmer of light making it just this side of dark. The horses  nicker when they hear my footsteps thinking that I may have a treat or will give them an extra brushing. Letting the light flicker through the darkness has made for, "A Painting Day".

Thank-you so much, Theresa, for your comment. My horses are true friends and are so important to me. Glad you like the painting.
