I know you guys get tired of hearing my poop stories but this one was a momentous occasion. I knew I'd have a mess in the barn from feeding hay in there last night so when I looked there was 5 piles all in a line along the back wall. First time they've ever been neat about going in the barn! LOL Frecks and Thunder's side was a whole different story though.
Who ever gets tired of poop stories?
I've been trying to catch up on what's going on with everybody but, Holy Smokes! This is an active bunch! I love Love LOVE
seeing everyones horse pictures and reading of their riding, especially as Boojum is still sidelined...
Rain today, so I worked on taxes and photos: almost 10,000 pictures from the Azores! What was I thinking?? I did finish editing Aruba, Azores, and started on editing photos from two dive jobs we did in February.
Editing the Azores brought back how much I love Portugal!! I promised to post some, but I think I would get kicked off of the forum if I started posting endless photos, but I will put up a few horsey ones...
We saw this horse farm but it was all locked up. A man was driving off, but stopped and offered us a tour. He only spoke Portuguese, and of course, my only word in that language is "Obrigado" (thank you), so while it was a very polite conversation, it took a while to figure out what he was saying.
But here he is, and here are some of the horses inside. They are Lusitanos, and are used for bullfighting. DSC_7382.jpg DSC_7384.jpg
This horse, which looked a bit like Boojum, bites. Think it's the color? DSC_7388.jpg
..and this sweet guy with a rubbed nose... DSC_7404.jpg
I must admit (although I hate to) that I wish the horses were better tended too... I wish they were not locked up and got to play more, and had tack which suited them better.
Here is the bullfighting ring on Terceira... DSC_7299.jpg
another difficult subject...
After the tour of the stable, our guide made motions of drinking coffee. we politely declined, until we realized that he was asking for a couple of euros for the pub... No problem! And more obrigados!
