just have to brag about my job!

I love my job as a beach trail guide! Sometimes the people suck but I love my horses I work with! Here are a few pictures I took at work yesterday :) I'll add more later, I'm on iPad right now. Enjoy! :)

EDIT: sorry they're so tiny! I'm not sure why photobucket has been making all my pictures so small...









Sorry this one is sideways, I can't figure out how to turn it on my iPad... But at the top of the pic is a female osprey in the nest she's been making


Here is one huge oak tree that's on our path..


And just because pino is so cute making her faces on the beach...




We got back to the barn just in time before the storm rolled in.. But we did get caught in it as we left work!

I would love to be on the beach right now. I am envious of your job. Enjoy it while you can.

Makes me miss my days as a trail guide Hard working, but really one of the best jobs in the world IMO.
Nice pictures! That little paint is adorable.

I am definitely enjoying it while I can! :) I love my job, but yes it is hard work, especially in the summer when we are swamped with guests wanting rides! Pino isn't exactly little haha, she's over 16hh, but she's our youngest and the laziest horse we have... I love both her and her sister Chardonnay :)

Jealous, so jealous! I loved being a trail guide when I was a teenager. I would give up my current barn job in a heartbeat to do that again!

Here are a few more pictures that will be a bit bigger! :)

I put a bigger picture of Pino where you can see her face a little better...

On the bridge, I'm the one on the leopard appy, he's my favorite! And he has his one little brown spot on his butt ;)

The last 2 are of the new Friesian, Munt, who came from Holland about a month ago. His mane is down to his knees and I agreed to braid it before being told how long it was lol. MTG is your friend! :)

My friend wants me to move to St Augustine, FL, with him. I'm starting to kind of want to...and I even found a barn that I fell in love with (at least from the website). Soooooooo tempting!
