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.
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!
