I gotta tell ya…

One of my favorite things, is to watch the horses run and play in the pastures.

I open the gates everyday for their grazing enjoyment.

Yesterday I decided to grab my camera, for some action shots.

You know, you can never have enough of those stored on your computer.

So here we go!

Everyone seemed to be doing their own figure 8 patterns, almost playing chicken with each other.

Don’t sell him short (yes pun intended) those little legs were a blur.

Atta boy Tater!

I see Kentucky Derby in his future.

Don’t you?

Well, it wasn’t a huge logging event but, when you’re trying to load up on wood for the winter, it sure feels like it.

My husband and I were cutting out some dead trees in the woods behind us (well I was supervising the cutting down part) and he decided we needed our mare Feather to help out.

So I threw the roping saddle on her and headed down the road.

There’s something about this mare…I just love.

I always tell people we may not be super great at one thing but, she’s done everything I’ve asked her to do.

I found a great sale on personalized halters, online. So I just couldn’t wait to get Sora’s.

She’s only 10 months old but she’ll grow into the adult halter eventually.

I adjusted it so it was as small as it would go and told everyone to stand still for the pictures I wanted to take.

Except for Feather, it didn’t go too bad…

Ok, I see you, now “whoa”!

Whoa

Whoa

DSC_2062Mmmpth!

So I ended up turning and making a run for the other side of the lot…

Great now Sora is in on the game. Whoa…
