Silly Silly Mare

Steph decided to go for a ride yesterday afternoon. I went out to help her tack up Dakota.

I love the way they rest that back hoof.....and turn around and stuff.

She likes using my saddle better than her own. That way the stirrups are even.

It's important that the stirrups are even.

Not a very attractive picture of Steph but look how high she has to put her leg just in order to get on this giant of a horse!

There is a better picture. She is a natural at riding. That makes me smile.

She and Dakota took off and then the silliness started.

What's going on? Where is my stud muffin going?

Mom, he left me again. I hate when he does that.

I'm nickering to him but he doesn't answer. Jones, that is because he is going to the neighbor's house to see some other mares.

WHAT??

That just makes me want to.....want to......well, it just puts a bad taste in my mouth.

But, I do still love my stud muffin. I'll just wait here until he gets back.....the big ole cheat.

Your horses speak so much, they must be related to Mr. Ed!

Great pictures of Jones. It's so neat to see a big animal move like that.

Hi TrailBoss,

It is wonderful to see your photos and comments. I really love following your family and having a entry into all you do. Thanks for your visit the other day to me. I get all caught up in this huge city and it's craziness.
I hope all are well and the babies are all just adorable !
Take good care, peanut
