These big guys are on their way down to the ferry, to start their off season in the pastures of the Upper Pennisula. Just as the horses arrive in stages in the spring, they leave in stages at the end of summer.
Experiencing the ongoing seasonality of nature and life is one of the joys of living on Mackinac. It's unfortunate that such seasonality has been lost to such much of our society; it always gives us something to enjoy, something to look forward to, as well as something to remember fondly.
