A Little Riding

I rarely ride.  I’m a beginner in any arena, but since I had an extra day off on the July 4th weekend, my daughter and her boyfriend decided to ride, so I went along.

I really did ride, but when  I was done I let Major have some grass.

When we were done, Princess and Belle were waiting up by the barn.

The flys are out in full force these days.bugs

Major is a master at finding that perfect bite.  Course it seems to be on the other side of the fence so much of the time.  Bummer.major finding just the right bite

Junior loves thistle, especially in the fall when it’s brown and sticks to everything (on him).  He many times has a crown of thistle all in his mane and forelock.  This time of year it’s green and the horses don’t seem to eat it too much, though here Junior is checking it out.

Again, fences are always in the way.jr in tall grass

Liberty and Misty, their love knows no bounds or stall walls.  Or maybe I should say – unbridled love!

Stay cool, everybody.  And tic free.
