Pickles gets mistaken for a horse…

When its time for Rita to give the horses their second feeding, Pickles the pig is always right there waiting for her share.

All the horses are eating….no horses available….and Nicole wants to ride.

IMG_3079  Wait…there’s Pickles….

IMG_3081   Pickles has finished her food. Pickles?

IMG_3082 Yes, Pickles!

IMG_3083 …not super comfortable…..

IMG_3084…..very fussy and noisy….

IMG_3085 ….and after only about a minute she just sits down…

IMG_3086…a very offended little pig….

IMG_3088…but a peace offering of some more sweet feed makes everything better!

 

 

What’s better than riding bareback….?

Riding bareback is great. It’s nice not to have to bother with a saddle and just hop on a horse….. What’s better than riding bareback?  Riding double bareback…. ….on a goofy Tennessee WalkerIMG_1797with REALLY dirty feet and a soda in your hand…. ….like Montana and Mark…. (and, yes, Delight, our Walker, is goofy…ask anyone who knows him…but that’s a story for another day….).

What we do when we’re not busy….

We lie on a picnic table and stare off into the distance…IMG_1770..like Mae…

 

We sit on Willow as she meanders to the hay ring … IMG_1768…like Mark and Montana….

We kick off our boots and practice being stunt riders in socks…. IMG_0248…like Josh and Olivia….

on Casanova and Valentino, our Paso Fino horses….IMG_0250…..oops…..

 

……barefoot is less slippery…..   IMG_0262  … You can see that Casanova….

….is not paying much attention…..IMG_0259….he’s used to Josh’s antics….!

 

 

….AAAAND…. some of us just take a bath….IMG_1598….like Sunshine !!!
