A Spring Day at the Stables

Yesterday I spent the day at the horse stables
with my daughter and mother.
The stables were my daughter boards her horse while she attends school.

A beautiful spring day.  Sun was shining and the temperatures were warm.
I did not bring my fancy camera, but did have my iPod on me.
So have a look at the images this little device took.
I did not edit any of these pics.

Two ladies in red.
Not sure why my Mom carried her purse around,
but as far back as I can remember, she has always had one on her arm.
Regardless of the situation.

The farm is finally starting to get a spring thaw.

Isn't she a beautiful blonde.

Now look how goofy she gets....

Daughter Rachel in the paddock rounding up her horse.

A very muddy field.

The owner of the stables not only offer horse boarding,
but are also a rescue shelter for some horses.

Meet Dijon, a very beautiful, very tall, majestic beast.
He is a rescued horse.
Dijon was scheduled for the meat factory,
until a woman bought him and brought him to the stable owners.

He is my absolute fave.  Follows me around around like a puppy.
Acts like a puppy.  Is so playful.  Loves attention.
This giant of a horse.

See.....he is trying eat my iPod!

Lots of mud, puddles of water and still some deep piles of snow lingers.
Rachel got a little stuck.

A valley of horses.

Let's stay connected, follow me on
