O @ the Ranch: 10 Weeks In

This weekend was awesome, full of friends, family, sporting events, and finally, a whole morning to hang out with my favorite bay mare.

While she is pretty sunbleached, everything else about her screams healthy, happy pony.  Especially since they’ve broken down the herd a bit and she now only goes out with her favorite little grey pony and her slightly smaller bay mare buddy.  Same one I rode in the family’s big trail ride.

Anyway, I have to admit that having her pay attention to me, and come over for cuddles pretty much made my week.  I mean, look how cute she was!  Excuse the grey pony photobomb–they are besties.

This mare makes me so happy!

We had to get our selfie on.

While the family says she’s been a great visitor, I am so, so excited to get her back.  I know that it’s going to be a lot juggling, and probably plenty of stress with an infant, and a mare coming back into work.  But I guess for the time being I’m going with the ‘jump into the deep end’ part of things.  November is going to be a wild month!

Kisses goodbye.

Her version of kisses goodbye.

  1. You may wanna reach out to Gingham at Pia’s Parade, she had her daughter fairly recently and can probably give you some advice on how to balance ponies with new babies.

    O looks great though! 🙂
