Thursday doors…No horsing around today!

Thursday is a day off for the horses, meaning they get to stay out in the pasture all Wednesday night, Thursday day, and  Thursday night.  I’m not sure if they have a union that negotiated this or not, but that’s how it is, although it can be changed to another day if circumstances, such as the Sheridan WYO Rodeo weekend, intervene.  They’re so used to the routine of being brought in, that Thursday morning often finds many of them grazing near the gate.  When no one arrives to get them, they gradually drift away to green(er) pastures.  This year, the grass on either side of the fence is green.

I don’t often go into town, even though Sheridan, Wyoming’s seventh largest city with about 17,000 people, is a great little place.  I love it at the cabin even when I’m not riding. But Thursday is the day to go and as our future son-in-law and his parents had never been there, we headed down the mountain.  After a stop to drop off garbage and recycling, coffee was next on the agenda and our stop was at a lovely shop I discovered last year, Andi’s.  Free wi-fi, a great place to relax on a very hot morning, and an iced mocha for me all hit the spot.

While walking through downtown Sheridan, I managed to capture a few doors.  Here are two. Next week I’ll share the other ones.

Next year I’ll have to be more intentional about finding doors, not just showing people around.  There are a couple of great craft breweries but although their products are delicious, their doors didn’t grab my attention except as portals to a tall cold one.

  1. Nice doors, and I especially like the iron work on the last one. 🙂

  2. Whenever I pass by a unique doorway now, I always think of you. I’m tempted to have my own photo post of some of my more interesting finds…

    Nice doors! I like Andi’s door, too.

  4. Norm 2.0 says:

    The decorative glass work on the first one and the clean simple look of the second make these two excellent choices. Nicely done 🙂

    Welcome back to blog land:) Love horses, and I painted them – it must be wonderful to have them in your life. Most farmers around here, have one or two.The last door looks familiar – one also sees these in Holland.

  7. Annie’s looks like a nice place. I like the porch, and the ironwork on the last door, and the red trim with the white paint in the second one.

    I rather like the notion of a horses union. 🙂 🙂

  9. Dan Antion says:

    I love that iron grill over the window in the last door.

    Everyone loves a routine.

    Don’t get me wrong, they’re good doors, and that’s a cute shop, but I really do like when you show us around! 🙂

  11. I love doors. I don’t know why they are just such bold statements in our life’s. Either welcome! Or get out!
