Signs of Fall on a Horse Farm

fallfarmFall is a lovely time of year, but not my favorite. For some reason, it always fills me with an unnamed longing. Here’s to a few early signs of Autumns’ approach:
– Its dark by the time you’re washing up after supper, the last light hovering over the horizon
– You’re making headway at last against the weeds, but only because everything is dying back
– The flies are slower
– But the stinkbugs are coming in the house
– Along with the mice and crickets
– The big pile of hay you hardly touched all summer is disappearing now at an alarming rate
– The horses’ coats are dark and shiny, a sure sign their winter hair is coming in
– My terrier comes when she called, not because she’s obedient, she’s just cold

Do you have favorite signs of Fall of your own?
