This is Raspberry.
She’s the new equine love of our life. (Sorry, Copper.)
She enjoys grass…
…refreshing drinks at the trough…
…long walks with handsome companions…
…going over to try out that greener grass…
…admiration from those surrounding her…
…and massages with a bristle brush.
If she lived closer, I think we’d move in with her.
As it is, we part with five bucks for a half-hour of Raspberry’s time.
Daddy says it’s the best deal going.
Babby says “when I get bigger, I do it by MYSELF!”
If your entire blog were pictures of Ms. Wear Dese on horses, I could read it all day and be content. She is so incredibly adorable.
So good to see pictures of that sweet girl! Miss you!
That was very sweet, Sarah.:) Watch out for those “kisses on the flank,” though. I wouldn’t want the poor girl to get kicked! This is coming from a fornmer horse woman. 🙂
And what a well spent $5.00!
I think our daughters would get along great! Mine doesn’t get regular outings on a horse, but the neighbors have ones that we “feed” (grabbing long grasses not reached by the mower), and random people have seen her grin at their horses and have been willing to let her ride. I’ve never seen a bigger smile! And I can’t wait until we can replace our digital camera.
What’s the general opinion on when a child is old enough for riding lessons?
Catherine, the riding stable near us (which we HAD to stop in and visit not so long ago, since we drive by it multiple times a day!) said that around 4-5 is when you can usually start lessons. I’m sure if you live on a horse farm, it’s sooner. 🙂
Donna, no worries about those flank kisses. We’re not going to make a habit of those!
