Something a little magical has happened for Lauren and I in our new home. While our years in Wharton might have seen horse visitors on the average of once a year, at our new location we are getting friends over a few times a week. Our trainer, Dev, has even graciously agreed to come down from north Houston and give lessons at our barn. This keeps Lauren from having to trailer across town and enjoy being home schooled with her friends. It is pretty great. Also, we are meeting new people who are a good fit for Bruno and Snow. It does my heart good to see these grand gentleman in the ring again. Today we enjoyed Amanda and her new super Quarter horse, Bentley, who I suspect will be something special. Arianna and her mustang pony, Ellie Mae, jumped everything Feather did, including the intimidating barrel jump. Former Sarah Petty rescue horse turned World Champion jumper, has joined us with his owner Libby and last, but not least, was Mia getting to know (and love) Snowboy. Here are some great pictures, most courtesy of Arianna.
What would a day at the farm be without Kona making new friends and getting in a little trouble?
And that’s about it folks, I better go to bed so I can get up and feed. Days running short- but happy.
