Out of My Rear Window 11-6-11
There is a new gentleman showing up at the feeder lately. This guy is a very handsome six-pointer. He's very skittish, thank goodness.
Added Monday morning: Becky is watching leaves fall. They are coming down like rain right now and she is absolutely fascinated with them. She spends hours on that chair, just watching.
And, finally, I wanted to pay tribute to the great Jumper, Hickstead, who died today in Verona, Italy, right after completing his round. He collapsed on the course. Cause of death isn't known, but speculation is high that it was a heart attack. Competition was canceled after his death.
Hickstead was one of the great names in show jumping. His partnership with his rider, Eric Lamaze, was one of the most successful in recent history. My heart goes out to Eric, and all of the connections of this wonderful horse. It will be a long time before we see his like again.
