SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






Today, I agreed to go see DUNE with Hubby…

HERE WE GO!

GORGEOUS wild one wintering up.

Someday, I will know a cow.

I love this.

He almost looks like a hinny. Maybe he is…

Amazing coloring!

Gentle giants… too gentle for their own good.

This guy amazes me.

More amazing colors!

Such a wise eye.

This was an incredibly beautiful video on Instagram. See if you can find it!

My constant quest for bird knowledge…

Yup.

OMG.

I’ve posted this before… but I just love this gorgeous wild family.

I visited Dalton yesterday!






Dalton is in training with Thru-Rider, Gillian Larson.  You can visit her website here and  Instagram here.

DALTON

Dalton is doing very well in training!  He is up to 5 hours on his trail rides!   He has spent most of his training time learning how to navigate the trailriding world and balance with a rider.  Now that he is a semi-pro and the riding part… he is now learning stamina and trails.

Gillian’s place is 1.5 hours from my house, but the drive is beautiful and my favorite fruit stand is on the way – bonus!

When I arrived, Dalton was nose fighting through the fence with his neighbor.  Of course.

Most of my photos didn’t turn out very well because once he saw me, Dalton was in my face, literally.  I had such a tough time holding my camera and pushing the button while simultaneously pushing his nose out of my hair.

Not complaining.

Having a horse love on you is one of the best feelings – ever.

We hung out.  I scratched him profusely.  We met his neighbor and squealing ensued.   We took a walk and met some of his new friends.  We dunked for watermelon and we read together.  Well, I read, he listened while munching on hay.

It was a great visit.

MY PHOTO JOURNAL

My boy.

He has a new neighbor, Cricket. This is one of Gillian’s trail horses. She is keen on Dalton. A lot of squealing happened when I arrived and took his attention. (The big brown thing on the left is Dalton’s nose.)

Right across the way are 3 resident mustangs who are also being trained for through riding by one of Gilllian’s Thru-Riding friends. (Thru-riding is not endurance riding.)

Dalton is helping me read and also checking my pockets.

I guess storytime was over because he took my jacket and upturned my chair when I left to speak to Gillian.

So we went for a walk… and met Gillian’s trail mule. she is very pretty.

After our jaunt, we played a bit more.

Then we played “Bobbing for watermelon”.

As the visit came to a close, we walked Dalton up to his usual turnout which is several acres with the 3 long yearling fillies. He loves them!

My kiss goodbye.
