I took these pics of my oldest daughter and my mother in laws house over the weekend and this is one of 3 horses that she has. We've watched this horse be born and then grow into this giant majestic animal.(she's actually standing on a chair next to him)They hired a trainer last year to teach them to ride and break him in.(I believe that's the term)She has been waiting and wanting to ride him for so long and she finally got to do it.I was nervous about it but they both did really well.He's a pretty mellow horse compared to his mom and sister.Both of whom are very excitable and stubborn.I thought it was just so amazing to see how far he had come. I'm not a big horse person and know very little but I always enjoy being around them. My silly camera decided to stop working when she was actually on the horse so I'm hoping to get a few shots of her when she goes back this weekend.She really seems to have a connection with these amazing animals.It's funny that all 3 of my girls love the horses but none of my boys seem in the least bit interested.Wonder why that is?
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
