I grew up with oddly hippy parents, listening to John Denver.

She particularly loves "Grandma's feather bed".
I grew up with anti-hippy parents and learned to play guitar (poorly) because of John Denver! I missed the hippy thing by fifteen -twenty years or so myself. The horses love it, my kids...they just groan. Oliver lopes nicely to I am the Eagle.

A good part about having horses at home is your husband never has to ask "What do you want for Christmas/ Anniversary/ birthday..." There is always something.

Awwww that sounds lovely. I hope to own my own barn someday so I can do just that! Although after Christmas I did go straight to the barn to feed but still, nothing like looking out your window & seeing the cuties. <3 GOALS!

This post made me smile. I am very lucky that my row of horse stalls/run ins is literally out my back door. I can turn on the laundry room light and see 3 heads pop out of their sheds and as soon as that door opens hear the wonderful nickers of the horses as they encourage me to hurry up! We also have beef steers who have learned that when the horses nicker it is feeding time so as I walk toward the shed and open the large back door where I can see all 4 of the horse sheds and the cow pasture I am really greeted with one of the best choruses ever.

Even in the coldest temps I try to take a moment and give each horse a loving pat and spend just a moment listening to them contentedly eat their grain and munch on their hay.

Our neighbors calves are right across the road from our barn and when I go up to feed they all line up at the fence wanting me to feed them too. LOL

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

An excuse to get away from the crowds and spend some alone time relaxing with a big warm furry being,
