a girl and her horse

 

Growing up, my aunt always had a horse. Over the years I got to ride, brush and take care of her horses while she went on short trips, or she’d invite me to come out and ride.

This week while we were in town again (where she lives) we got to go out and visit the stables again.  She still has a horse and we took our kids with a big bag of carrots. 🙂  Her horse, Shadow, was very happy about that, as was his neighbor Tuxedo.

The kids were anxious at first – to let his lips touch their hands while eating carrots.
Then she sat on Shadow….

They got to walk around a bit.
Then she didn’t want to get down.

My husband works at a camp, so I foresee many visits to the barns in our future, and get ready, Laura (wrangler), Heidi is going to be your sidekick from now on. 🙂
