Well, we are back!!! We made it! Woot woot! The horses settled in just fine and all went very well! Welllllllllll, except, I have another thing to add to the "what are your horses scared of" thread. THE OCEAN! Ha ha, I had to lead my mare to the water, she was not having any of the roaring and the sand washing from beneath her feet, well, she was not a fan. There are three stages of sand at the beach, the too loose, too wet, and just right, lol. Here are some pics.
Got a leather burn..............
Found two dollars on the beach.............. sand ones of course...........
Back to truck..........
Detour the bay...........
Love to splash!
The splashing is cute and all, but I just don't get it. Used to think they wanted to see how deep the water was before moving on but na, they would just stand and splash as long as you let them. Thanks for looking and sharing with me.
We are having a clinic at the barn on Saturday for Mounted Archery.
Has anyone ever tried this?
I want to sign up but I'm not sure. These days I have enough just controlling Hunter let alone shooting arrows from his back. Lol
Uhmm, Hunter you may want to rethink trying that..Like you said, you have a hard time controlling hunter with reins, imagine what would happen if you lean forward in your seat while the reins are on neck.
take pictures of the clinic for us though...lol
Same here. We can't ride the beaches that I know of.
@ Roadyy, from her resisting and freaking a bit about the water, she kept wanting to climb in my lap! LOL.
@ Hunter65, thank you! And love that pic of yours!!!
Ya unfortunately that's not me. I'm thinking about trying it though. I will definitely post picts if I do it. Just gotta talk to DH his work plans keep changing and now he will be leaving Sunday or Monday for 8-9 weeks so don't know how happy he will be with spending all day Sat at the barn.
Meh, we aren't young bucks and does anymore. We slow down just a tad and our metabolism drops to leave unused meals lingering around. I could stand to lose about 30 pounds to get back to my ideal weight, but feel good where I am for the most part. When I get to the point of not wanting to go do anything or just want to sleep all the time then I'll say I need to exercise more to lose a few pounds..
