At The Barn


Punkin had promised Banana to take her on a trail ride all summer and today was the day.....







My Punkin has been spending a ton of time at the barn this summer.  She is now teaching lessons as well as week long camps.  She has been working so hard, but she loves it so much she can hardly believe she is getting paid for it. She spent some of that hard earned money on her horse lately..... she just loves the blue bug bonnet for Smokey-Joe's ears.   I'm not sure Smokey-Joe feels the same way about it...


Sister time is the best!  They really enjoy each other the most when they are sharing a common interest...


































My Banana LOVES to ride bareback... I'm quite sure it's the Indian in her.  Her great-grandpa was pure Indian.






Momma's favorite purchase of  Punkin's was the handy-dandy cell phone holder that goes atop her boot while riding - FINALLY I can reach her when she is on the back of a horse.  It's heavenly.

I came across your blog last night. I am a small animal veterinarian in Alabama and love taking pictures of my animals. My horse is up the street but in Alabama we are all too sweaty for pictures right now! :) Just wanted to say your pictures are beautiful - I hope to learn some things...

All these pictures are breath taking. Everyone looks so happy. It's nice to see a post with so many pictures of Kir. Glad she let you do that. :)

Heather, thanks for chatting with me! I wanted to be a large animal vet when I was your girl's ages, but decided that being up in the middle of the night with colicky horses just wasn't what I would want to do forever! :) How did you learn your skills? What kind of camera do you use?

Great pictures. Kirsten and Hannah are awesome riders. Hannah definitely looks like an Indian maiden riding. Is she going to be riding again? And Emily, is she going to start riding. Looks like they all had a good day. I Love Smokey's hat. Very cute.
