Elements of design

Well that is what the heading of this bit of my watercolour book said. My scan has not come out very well as there was more background on this.
A bit of nonsense.
I lost a mare today, one who had foaled so my daughter is now rearing an orphan foal, all very disheartening especially as we dont know exactly what the cause was.
One of the facts of life when you breed animals of any sort. We have to make quite sure that this little fellow doesnt get too cheeky, much better that he doesnt see humans as something to bite and kick. A fine line between teaching the right and the wrong things.
I have had a full on day and it is late so I am off to bed. I dont think I have a haiku for this.

Oh Penny! Think a big Hug!

That is all I can do - Just send you all the strength I have!

So sorry about the mare, Penny. And it must be such a worry not to know why it happened.

And good luck with the orphan foal. How they love to bite (and to keep on biting if not taught otherwise).

And I, for one, like your flowers.

So sad about the mare. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

I love your flower sketch, Penny.

Thinking of you and your recent sadness! Take care!...Wanda

"I am so sorry,
You will have so much to learn.
Please be a nice horse"!

There is a haiku for you!

So sorry you lost a sad. Best thoughts coming your way, Penny!
