I feel so lucky that my weekends have been jammed packed with horsey fun! Really, I have to get all my horse time in two and a quarter days since I can't make it out to the barn at all during the week. Luckily, school and internship are done in April, but work is never ending. . .
Last weekend, we went to a local horse expo. I found the one thing that I always wanted for driving. . .
|It's a chariot!!|
This weekend we had a local Christmas parade (already!!). We took the boys and the hitch wagon. The totally un-horse parade people put a marching band behind us. . .not cool. Jaime made the decision to excuse ourselves from the parade. It was a good decision, better safe than sorry. Notch and Clutch weren't spooky or bad, but the band was loud and the wagon was packed full of people and the horses were just comfortable. We took a side street back and they were much more relaxed being out of the parade atmosphere.
|At the line up|
|Kyle and Tommy|
|Tommy working the wrecker that we used to take the hitch wagon to the parade|
|Dog with a cart! Too cute!|
Haley came up again and rode Isaac. He is a really good horse and not bothered by having a rider at all.
|Isaac the elephant!|
Jaime shaved the defining feature of Clutch. . .he has scratches and the feather had to go. He also go his mane roached to match Notch. Jaime is not a fan of hair on horses.
|Bye bye feather. I tried to shave a leg. . .I am a terrible clipper!|
And, we are putting a new, bigger pasture out back. This is how we made sure our pasture lines were straight.
|We just had Kyle point the truck at a cone and drive towards it!|
It was a bumpy ride! We also tried to spray paint a giant smiley face in the field, but ran out of spray paint.
|Gonna cut this up for corner posts.|
The only crappy thing for me is that Shyloh is probably going to have to stay up front in a small pasture because the big one will have a round bale. And she just can't handle having access to all the hay.
Terry had some friends out to experience riding and driving Reba. That is a good mare, but such a handful! She loves to work and even though she was a sweaty mess from driving around out back, she didn't want us to unhook her from the forecart.
|She looks good in yellow!|
We also rode the 4 wheeler around out back. The mini Aussies love going for rides!
|Haley and Bindi|
|Piper hopped up for a ride with me|
|Four wheeler...also how we take poop out back|
Now it is pouring rain with a tornado watch. Yuck. Oh, and I will be holding yet another contest from Horze this week! Happy weekend!
