Sunday in Pictures

"Fuzzy Wuzzy" Peach.  A pony we owned years ago.
We were going to breed her and then never did.
She pretty much just ate hay and pooped.  :-)

Romeo (1/2 Arab - 1/2 App, .... a colt  I bred), and Peach.
It's not what you think.......  :-)

Pony Pals .... Daisy and Peach
Daisy was my youngest daughter Kerri's pony when she was growing up.
Daisy was Registered 1/2 Rocky Mountain Horse, therefore gaited.   ......smooth ride.
Of course that smooth ride means nothing if your pony stops suddenly
 from a canter, and you fly over her head like a torpedo.  Ask Kerri.

Arab Dance
My full arab brood mare Abra Aziz.
(dam of Romeo)

Miniature Donkey Boots.
Just a baby here yet.  He grew up to be the meanest animal ever.


     This was memory lane for me.  I still love horses, but I'm glad I don't have the chores (or bills) anymore :-)   .....dr momi

I don't know much about horses but yours are pretty! That cute little donkey turned out mean,too bad. I was just telling a friend today that was thinking of buying some donkeys that some of them can be really mean and to choose carefully.My Bonnie and Clyde are sweeties though.

Arab Dance was sure a pretty girl! Maybe the mini donkey thought he had to be mean to make up for his size! LOL!! We are currently back to one horse, whew!

We had four horses and a donkey at one time. Hubby would love to have a couple of horses out in the field again but not being the natural rider he is all I can think of is the work and expense of keeping them. Lotsa hay involved if you don't have adequate pasture especially in our long winters up here. I do agree there's nothing like watching a couple of horses kickin' up their heels out there though.

You have had some very pretty horses over the course of your life. But I agree about the work! sandie

Tex.....but aren't they beautiful!


Saun....thanks for the follow, I look forward to peeking through your blog.

Melodie....your Bonnie and Clyde just plain look sweet :-) Boots was left a stud just a little too long I think. He never acted like he even liked you -- and later on was using his teeth. He was definitely in the "really mean" category.

Candy C.....Boots being the little guy in the pasture surely could have been part of the problem, although none of the other horses were ever mean to him. Only one horse. That just doesn't sound right LOL!

Mama Pea....I think it was pitching bales of hay for the winter that did me in. I thought when I sold the last horse I would regret it. All I felt was a great burden lifted off my shoulders. The chores were getting to me more than I knew. I do wish we had a pony for the grandkids to ride, but winter chores?? I'll let my kids get the horses, :-)

Chatty Crone....I loved it when I was young. Just can't do it now. :-)

What great photos! Had to LOL at the mini-donkey comment - some of them sure can get to be rotten, can't they?
Thanks for your comments on my blog, I'm glad you stopped by. I look forward to reading more of your posts. :o)
