Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Ours was a busy one.
We toured two farms up for sale, gave a dinner for my mom's 75th birthday,
did a little bit of packing and even got in a bit of shopping here and there.
The second farm tour I will get pics out shortly.
In the mist of all this busy chaos, we manage to get a little bit of horse therapy in.
Daughter Rachel had accompanied me on this particular farm tour.
On our way back home Rachel was a little tired and sore.
Since her accident the summer of 2011, her life has drastically changed.
Once an avid horsewoman, she has not been back in the saddle since.
I know she misses that life terribly.
After the tour, as we were driving home we passed a tack shop.
She sighed and said she misses riding and horses in general.
I made an immediate decision right there and then, braked and turned around.
I know there would be beauties out in the pastures on that bright, warm beautiful day.
And there they were.
The owner of the shop was very happy to talk us into buying this blonde beauty, Diamond.
But sadly it is an expense I can not afford right now.
I might consider it when we get closer to buying the farm.
She was such a mild and calm pony.
I know that Rachel would have loved to get in the paddock with them.
If she could she would grab a comfy chair, a good book, a couple of dogs
and sit right there amongst all the animals she loves.
But as it is, she just enjoyed them from the fence.
For almost two hours, with the horses and shopping inside the tack shop,
we were ready to leave. We bought a few horse brushes and some equestrian decor.
Put her in the company of a few horses, and Rachel was one happy girl!
Thank you Diamond for visiting with us. :)
Horse therapy indeed.
