Pastoral Day

Today was a Perfect Duluth Day at North Country Ride in Esko, Minn. My daughter and I spent the afternoon at the therapeutic horse ranch conditioning horses to their new roles of healing disabled people, by letting people ride them.

Although those clouds may look looming, the temperature was about perfect, and when it did rain, we were in the arena with horses name Dixie and Misty Rain. How apropos that Misty Rain served as a companion on this day.


I double-checked the phrase “pastoral day,” before I typed it into the blog and found out June 5, 2020 was the official Pastoral Day; it was Beethoven Pastoral Day. A post on a website stated: “Beethoven loved Nature – we love it, too!”
