What a Great Day!

It's Tuesday again. Do you know what that means? It means we were at the stables again today. It means I took another bazillion pictures of Brenna riding again today. Well, a bazillion of her and a gazillion of the babies!!!! Which is more-bazillion or gazillion? Who knows. What I do know is that we had a blast with the littlest of the bunch today. On top of that, the orange trees that surrounding the area are in full bloom right now and the air smells like those orange popsicles with the vanilla ice cream in the center, just a little sweeter.

Here are the babies!

I know!! Gorgeous. This one is a little shy.
Does this look like a new mother's face, or what?

This one (I keep calling them this one, 'cause I don't know their names. They aren't on the front of the stables and if they were, I would probably forget because they are so darn long!!)
ventured out a little, but Mamma kept banging on the stable wall for dinner.

You know the saying, "when mamma ain't happy..."

"honey, ain't NObody happy." And in she went.
I do love this one for the great legs. It reminds me of my eldest daughter when she was little. Long 'ole legs and knobby knees!

Now THIS one. Oh, does this one have personality plus. She (?) is also so furry, they had to shave part of her neck to find a vein for innoculations!
So soft!

She loves attention, and is the only one of the bunch that will come up and let you scratch her head.


Just like her Mamma. Mamma and I lean our heads together and I rub her face and we commiserate together.

I think we are best friends now.

These two are so beautiful. The mane on this baby?

Aren't these curls to die for???!!

All in all, it was a nice day in the neigh-borhood. Ha ha ha!

Well....seeing as how you are here, I might as well show you what Miss Brenna worked on today!!!
Balance. At a trot, no less!

Show off!

And holding the reins with two hands.

Yup, it was a good day.


  1. Hi Lynn- such sweet photos...Brenna looks like she is doing very well with balance! I lived in California for many years and we had an orange tree...I remember the wonderful blossom scent very well!

  2. Well, it certainly looks like someone was enjoying themselves!

    That is a nice smile!

    And those foals are so cute!

    I haven't been around any for soooo many years now....it was always so much fun...waiting for the babies to be born...

    Of course they were born a bit later here in SD....or they would end up being born in a snow bank!!!

  3. oh, those babies!! I see why you are so in love the white curly mane!! And the markings on that one. I'm in love...
    do love the smell of orange blossoms as well. tonight I got a few snorts of LILACS on my walk. Nothing more wonderful to my nose than lilacs. it's love... B looks fab in the saddle. Go buckaroo!!

  4. Oh what beautiful horses! And the little pain? or pinto? is definitely my favorite!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog =)
    Have a great day!

  5. Sweet babies! And speaking of, look at your baby go! I love the thumbs up behind the back! Coool.

  6. Lynn,
    What sweet pictures of the horses...and the aorable, beaming Brenna! This is such a wonderful idea. You are a cool, brave momma!

    P.S. I just posted my Alice in Wonderland Tag Book if you want to see. So fun!

  7. oh gee whiz, all those babies made me go all squishy - there's still a part of the 11 year old "please please get me a horse" girl in me i think. so sweet. this must really be a special time for you and brenna, what a wonderful thing for both of you.
    have a happy easter weekend!

  8. What a wonderful post, Lynn!! I don't think your daughter's face could be beaming anymore than it is in the pictures of her on the horse!! And the pictures of the babies are just precious!!! I just love the curly mane!!! Thanks so much for sharing them with us. : )
