Horses! BIG horses!
Oh, just look what I was up to again this weekend!
My friend Ronna took this photo of us. I was out on a sleigh again with lovely Sarah and handsome Limerick (and their owners, twins Jake and Sam!)
We went to our friend Eugene's again for a day of sleigh rides. It was wonderful, sunny and the temps above freezing. Things are thawing but there was still lots of snow on the ground for the sleighs. And someone convinced me to get on a horse...
I didn't take much convincing. Paisley is a lovely, calm girl who just wanted to follow the sleigh. This was maybe my fifth time on a horse every (yes, no helmet, but she was a horse for newbies and I wasn't on there for too long.) This has convinced me to take riding lessons so I at least know the basics.
I couldn't stop smiling the whole time I was up there. I have discovered how much I love being around horses. I have always liked them, but all this time spent driving horses and being with them the past few weeks has been magical. I find time stands still when I'm doing these things.
Here is my friend Eugene, with Gordon, Jake and Sam and the Belgians Sarah and Limerick (same ones we spent last Sunday with!)
Country boys know how to have fun!
And these beauties belong to Eugene's son Korey. I wish I could remember what breed/crosses they are. Gorgeous horses!
And this Hackney cross was there pulling a lovely antique sleigh.
Gordon helped Sam and Jake take the horses back to the trailer for a snack and a break at lunchtime.
Yes, he's sold on getting some heavy horses.
A little grain for the hard-working Sarah!
Our friends Ronna and Richard came for a ride too! Here they are with Gordon and Sam and Jake. What a perfect day.
Korey's team again.
Men at work, ha ha.
Those horses could drag him down the road if they really wanted to!
Ronna and Richard visit Limerick in the trailer.
The day ended way too soon...
Bye guys! Hope to see you all again soon!
One word for this: magical!
