I made the time to have a quick ride on both Bonnie and Sky this weekend. The weather was just too nice not to ride. They have not been ridden in 2011 and for the most part have hardly been ridden at all the last few months simply due to a lack of time on my part. They thought they had joined the ranks of the retired horses and were quite happy about that. Sky was standing quietly in the cross ties while I attempted to remove the layers of dirt and dust in search of the grey horse I knew was lurking underneath. The look on her face when I walked towards her with the saddle in my arms was truly priceless. It could best be summed up as shocked disbelief. If she could talk she would have said "but mom, we don't do that anymore!" complete with a hoof stomp.
Everyone and everything on the farm has had a smile the last few days. The people, the horses, the dogs, cats, The Don, the goats and the pet cows all gave two thumbs up for the weather. We have a couple more days of this and then we get rain. Blech.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
