OMG, soooo cute! Love those spotty little dudes...they are just MADE for parades. So darn flashy! I love the one where you are giving them a pep talk, they look like they are really listening to you...cracks me up!
I will say, once again, I think I am growing more and more envious of where you live. Just seeing little snippets of every day life there...I am feeling a weird gnawing inside...like I just don't belong in this "un horse friendly" place. :( Plus, the beauty of your area...I dunno...just makes me feel funny. I told my DH I want to have a place here for winter, and a place up that way for summer! Of course he laughed in my face and said..."Um, sure honey, now...let's talk about our small bank account and big bills!"
What did we do to celebrate? Well, nothing with the horses! We had plans to visit friends that got a room on the beach at a really nice resort, and watch the firework show on the beach. There were quite a few families from DD's school there, kids running around, parents having cocktails, it was really nice....but I just *knew* my crazy neighbor was setting off big fireworks in the street, and I was worried the minis and the filly would be freaking out. I am happy to say they were 100% fine. We got home and he was still shooting off fireworks and all the horses were not even flinching. Guess they got used to it quick...and it will just be another thing that makes them "bombproof"...almost literally!
BTW, I owe you a PM...I have VERY GOOD NEWS! I am sure you can guess.....
Love your pics, as always...thanks for sharing!
