I had the BEST TIME this evening! Our friends Jake and Sam invited us to ride in their new surrey in the Maxville Christmas parade. It looked so pretty all lit up with lights!
And here are Sarah and Limerick, the Belgians who did all the hard work!
We had a little photo session before the boys got the horses all hitched up.
And off we went through Maxville, heading towards the giant feed mill.
The participants in the parade gathered at Maxville Manor beforehand. Some of the seniors (retired farmers!) came out to admire the horses.
Sam and Gordon chatting.
The boys (I call them "boys" because I am old enough to be their mother, but they are young men!) gpt this surrey second-hand, and it's in beautiful shape. Our seat was super comfortable, too.
Jake got the glory job,
And Mr. Snowman posed for me by his bike!
The man on the left came out and spent quite a bit of time with the horses. He used to have some himself!
Being around horses always makes me happy. Hoping to get some here next year!
Sam very kindly takes the elderly for rides, ha ha ha. I am the same age as his Mom!
I practiced by queenly wave!
And our friend Margaret Caldbick took these photos while the parade was in progress...
It was a bit damp this evening, but we had our blanket to keep us warm.
An excellent way to spend a late fall evening. I highly recommend it!
