This is my first posting at Three or More. But I have 3 horses and this is about my day with them so I suppose it qualifies. Be sure to visit Tam and all the participants at http://gypsycorner.blogspot.com/ I'm making this a double post along with Outdoor Wednesdays.
Here is my Wednesday outdoor report! Thank you Susan for hosting this fun time. Now, after you take a peek at my day with the horses, go see what everyone else has been up to at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
A lot of my "Outdoor Wednesdays" will be photos from my "other home", the barn. I'm always there on Tuesdays and every other day I don't have to babysit. This is a big part of my life. I wanted horses ever since I was little and it took till I was nearly 60 to have them!!! I totally enjoy every minute with them. It's true, there's something about women and horses. And here's another truism: "Every horse should be owned by a little girl at sometime in their lives."
I braided Echo's mane today. His mane is very long and gets tangled with knots if I don't keep after it. Echo is part clydesdale, part thoroughbred and his sire was a paint. (So that makes him a warmblood) He's big boned but not too much higher than my quarter horse.
That's our "boys". From left to right . . . Echo, the black one, is a warmblood, 5 yrs old still training him; Preacher, a quarter horse, 15 yrs., my all around guy; and Satire, my daughter's senior Arabian. He's 30, a retired show horse and in great shape.
Leading out to the front pastures.
Some of our horse's stalls. You can see the inside arena through the big door there. Oops that's an inside picture!
The mountain of manure that WAS here gets hauled away every so often by landscape people who use the wonderful compost. Maybe that's more than you wanted to know but that's life at a barn : ))
OK, I'll "end" with this! That's me with shorter hair last spring, standing on an enormous mountain of manure! (20 horses make a lot of "debris" through the winter!!) Hope you enjoyed my horses and a day at the barn photos. I have at least a gazillion photos of our horses. Let me know if there are any "horse people" out there. Next time I'll do some riding photos and tell some horsey stories!My daughter took this photo. She's a professional photographer. Go have a look at her beautiful website http://www.mzezulakphotography.com/
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday everyone. Drop me a line.
