|Fuzzy Dice - The Latest Equine Accessory!|
The past couple weeks have been a bit insane, between trying to suck water out of the basement rug (thank you, Hurricanes Irene & Lee), my dad's recent heart attack, surgery, subsequent doctoring, and back-to-school craziness.
Frankly, it's a miracle we've gotten through the past few weeks without anyone killing each other.
Here's how we added some horse fun to alleviate stress build-up:
coin operated pony in front of the Walgreen's! Will had a blast, but noted that "this riding thing is a lot harder than it looks!"
After agility we headed off to the barn to hack the girls. It was such a nice day we decided to cool them out on the trails, so off we tromped through the neighboring fields. We must've been a sight: A horse, a pony, a boy, and a donkey. Sug and I took point, Cookie tried to keep up, and Noah did his best to let us know when the donkey was doing a dive bomb run from behind. A little chaotic to say the least, but good fun.
And of course, (unfortunately for the cats) a lot of horsie time whetted the kid's appetite for cat jumping, so the poor cats were shanghaied into a little cat steeplechasing.
