horse farm open house

I just had to throw in another shot of Margie Sue.
** My Aunt Joann asked if that is a bruise on Margie's head, and no I don't know what it is. I guess a shadow which makes me wonder why she would have a shadow right there on her forehead. I'm investigating immediately!**
A horse farm in the area had an open house over the weekend so of course we couldn't miss it. I don't know why riding on the spring horse and mounting the saddle on a retired pommel horse was so much fun but it was!
The girls groomed this old man. He was 26 or 27 years old.
They made stick horses and ...
....did some pole bending with them.
There was a map that we had to follow and have different points checked off in order to get a goodie bag. These rolly polly puppies was one of the required stops. Later in the day we walked up the road to watch some 4-H kids demonstrate some different riding styles. It was a really fun day for the girls.

Hi guys!
Where was the horse farm? looks like a fun day!!! I would like to ride what you're riding on in the picture girls.. Kit has had a hard time lately... the farm where we keep him just got two goats, they are the most friendly things and Kit is SCARED TO DEATH of them! I have to walk him by the goats pen to get him in the barn and I stopped so he could see them and he reared up and ran off (into the newly planted pumpkin field too)SO, I ran to the barn to get grain so I could lure him in and guess what I saw? Two goats out of their pen, so needless to say, it was a busy night for me and my arm is sore from trying to hold onto him! (of course the goats live right where I normally ride..)I guess they'll have to live next to kit so they can get used to eachother :)
How frustrating! I guess life is never dull when there are animals involved (and kids too for that matter!)
Love the pictures of everyone!
Thoughts are with you!
