Part 4 - Sunrise Over The Ozarks

Saturday morning we woke up to the most beautiful sunrise, the sky was all shades of pink and the trees all has a pink glow to them. Mom took us for a long walk and while we sniffed and double sniffed she watched the sky changing.

Down near one of the ponds we came across Yonkie having some breakfast on the lovely spring grasses. Dweeb stayed hiding behind Mom but not me - I trotted right up to her to say good morning and you know what she did - she SNEEZED on me. Really - is that any way to treat to a world famous cowspotdog? Mom said thankfully most of the sneeze went over me - otherwise I would have had horse cooties all over me!

Mom says these are probably two of her most favorite photos....the glow from the pink sky made the trees all pinkish and the view of the Ozarks was awesome. This was taken from behind the pavillion which is a large building that has french windows facing this view. It is used for weddings and we couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to have one.

Here is one of the cabins down by the pond - each one is completely self contained and it feels like you are there all by yourself as the trees block the view of the other cabins plus they are all staggered up the hills which adds to the privacy. Come back tomorrow for our final Ozark adventure post.


  1. The pink hues are lovely. LOL Yonkie sneezing on you. You certainly don't want to get covered in horse cooties. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. OMD….. what a pawsome pink sky. My mom won't get up early enough to see da sunrise. Sigh.
    I guess I'll just have to enjoy yours.

  3. Beautiful sunrise. Katy's not had much experience with horse's, but Bailey spent many of his early years attending daycare on a horse farm. He was friends with several of the horses. They liked him, but they took time to let him get close.

  4. Super lovely pictures. Oh to be in the Ozarks in Spring. We can almost smell the dogwoods. (Well Gail can, personally I have never seen a dogwood tree in bloom as we do not have them in Scotland).
    Toodle pip!

  5. Oh how beautiful the sky with the pink streaks - I absolutely love that my friends! You know I've never met a horse up close and personal... thank goodness you didn't get horse cooties from his sneezy. That would have been eeww - right? XOXO - Bacon

  6. Oh Reilly horse cooties would not be a good thing at all. Glad to hear most of them over shot you. The sunrise is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Horse snooties would have been pretty scary in your pretty furs
