Oh that's right..... we have horses. The poor equines have been pretty much ignored around here lately. The animals on our farm are on a "don't work, don't eat" policy, so we figured we had better make some time to ride before somebody got the goofy idea to ship them to the sales barn. Chores were done and most of our school, too, so we packed a picnic lunch and headed out back to the camp sight this afternoon. The boys were happy to walk as they are not fond of riding. The sun was shining and the bugs weren't too bad yet~ a perfect day for a picnic. We enjoyed our lunch then enjoyed exploring and checking everything out while the horses ate grass in the corral. The corral that is still missing it's roof. We dreamed about some day building a little cabin as well as a screened in gazebo if I could just find some more salvage lumber laying around somewhere. We missed Trent as we thought about the past fun we've had out back and the future hopes and dreams. The boys headed back up to the house on foot and the girls and I took the horses the long way home. It feels good to be on the back of a horse again. It's one of the places that make me truly happy~ bareback of course.
