      They don’t have their usual shaggy winter coats yet, so I’m hoping it means milder weather ahead! ๐Ÿ™‚ Although freezing rain is not fun, and snow is prettier. Just don’t like the super deep freeze! Thanks for coming by, glad you liked them.

  2. November 14, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Anything to stop the frackers….

  3. November 14, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Ha.. silence of the horses was new to me.. can one trust the cows?

      One would lie for a cookie but the other is pretty trustworthy about matters such as weather and calves! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      There’s a joke about Indians and firewood that comes to mind when we try to predict the weather! ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband loves to tell it! ha ha I like snow when it isn’t brutally cold so we can play in it and the soil gets the moisture! And love always is, isn’t it? Thanks for coming by Brian.

    Mildness in Manitoba is much like the waning Indian Summer here on the coast of WA state; temps in 50’s, no real freeze yet; sip snow; just the way I like it; not a fan of driving on our many hills in ice & snow.

    • shanyns said,

      November 14, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      Have done hills and mountains in winter – not fun for driving, especially watching out for the other guy! Glad you are getting some good weather.

  6. November 14, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    Cows proclaiming a mild winter and the horses remaining mum… great. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, I am going to hope the cows are right…and that there will be a mild winter! (Ha, what do horses know anyway? LOL.)

    • shanyns said,

      November 14, 2013 at 11:43 pm

      I will put my trust in the cows as well, horses are awfully fickle! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. November 15, 2013 at 12:21 am

    Shanyn- loved these sentence poems, each a snippet of your view – the cow forecasters made me smile! K

      Good to see you too! A mild winter is something I could enjoy for sure, and I know you would too!

  11. November 15, 2013 at 2:08 am

    Very nice. Oh, I love winter! Ha! The first was perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. November 15, 2013 at 2:47 am

    These are really clever – loved them all; again they express you.

    I’m wishing the fracking protesters would have been heard here. It does need to stop!

    • shanyns said,

      November 15, 2013 at 9:39 pm

      Thanks Gay, and yes the fracking fracking has to stop! Glad you enjoyed them.

    Fun….but I think the global warming is going to wreak all kinds of havoc with warmer winters here and colder temps down south..now matter what the cows say;)

    • shanyns said,

      November 15, 2013 at 9:39 pm

      I think the cows know, and are much more adaptable then we ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for coming by!

  14. November 15, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Love the photo & sentence to go with it. Yes, spread love, kindness, poetry. Beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you! I took that photo going by the town of Love this fall, had to add the another ๐Ÿ˜‰ So pleased you enjoyed the poems.

    Nice poem Shanyn! And I hope the cows are good at forecasting the weather!

    • shanyns said,

      November 15, 2013 at 9:41 pm

      Thank you, and I think they are pretty good with the long term. Short term not so much!

    all strong sentences. I especially enjoy the heartwarming nature of your winter coats with talking cows and quiet horses.

  19. November 15, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    I like the imperative in “love them.” Oh, so difficult to love “especially them.” That one stood out for me. Nice

    • shanyns said,

      November 15, 2013 at 9:41 pm

      Thank you, it was one that was close to my heart. Still is.

  20. Sherry Marr said,

    November 15, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    I love these Shanyn – especially “horses stay mum.” Hee hee. And yes, let’s spread love!

  21. November 15, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    The last one sentence – my fav. I hope winter will be mild. Love all your sentences, witty and at the point.

  22. November 15, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    So many different takes…and yes to stopping frackers… loved the cows predicting weather, nature does. We all need to learn to love…even those that make it hard. Wonderful sets!

    How many times a day do I stop myself to remember that in the end there will be but ONE remaining charateristic…LOVE. Because that is what God IS…my opinion–grin!

    Thank you–for my last reminder before hitting the sack!
    Well done!

    • Steve E said,

      Also I’m borrowing that
      LOVE 1
      ANOTHER
      photo for my FB page in a day or two…OK?

      • shanyns said,

        November 16, 2013 at 3:27 am

  25. November 16, 2013 at 4:33 am

    I feel for all the animals having to face the harsh reality of the seasons ~ you are spreading the love ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. November 16, 2013 at 9:52 am

    In Norway, in the latitude I live (63ยฐ N) a mild winter might not be the best, because it could mean rain. I need to ask the cows, but I am hoping for snow. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ‘horses staying mum’, now there’s a topic for conversation ๐Ÿ™‚
    You are so lucky with your weather. No wintercoats yet? I wear two on top of each other: both downfilled and I look like the Michelin man
