Trip Back Home

I grew up in New Hampshire, and havent been back up there since I graduated high school. I was expecting so much to be different, but it wasnt, it was all how I remembered it. I went back up to a friend's place that I was at everyday growing up! Sadly, her Morgan ended up getting EPM, and after a few years of fighting it, she made the decision to have him put to sleep. Shortly after her stunning Welsh Pony passed in his sleep. Since then, she has bought two more, a Lippit Morgan, and a Mini. Both of them are just stunning in my opinion. Here are a few shots of the trip. Enjoy

Not sure what to think of me!




Chunky Boy for sure!


Matching!

And a few other shots or the scenery :)

csimkunas6, where in NH? I grew up outside of Portsmouth, went to UNH and married a man in the Army so only get to make occasional trips back east. You're right, it always looks the same and now that I've been away from New England, I miss terribly the seasons, ocean, seafood, and everything else wonderful about the area. Glad you got to go home, even if just for a visit!

Thanks guys! Portsmouth huh? No way!? I went there and went bar hopping one night when I was there....cute little town! I grew up in New Hampton, NH, or the Lakes Region, what ever is more familiar. I went to New Hampton Prep while there, Tori Gurley who plays in the NFL, and Rashad McCants who plays for the NBA both went there. But my father lives in Hampton now, and Portsmouth is right around the corner!

I agree 100% though, growing up there I wasnt too fond of it, but now looking back, I had an awesome childhood, and I would love to live there again!!!

Very nice photos! I was going to ask you where but you already answered that, I currently live in NH, but I live in the "Northeast Kingdom" region, I.e. The White Mountains. That mini is a cutie, and that Morgan looks pretty sturdy!

that's funny, I saw that you were in NH the other day, and was going to ask you that as well! Beautiful state, I just ended up moving to West Virginia for school, got married, lived there for a little while, and then moved even further south to NC

wow looks beautiful!!! And her ponies are adorable :)

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.
