More horsing around...

I know you've seen so many pictures before but my new found (once again) hobby has me so excited! I love my weekend trailing getaways with Debbie. :)

Look at that handsome snout!

Your eyes are getting verrrrry heavy...

Awwww....come on Ari, just one kiss...

Good boy!

How much more peaceful can this get?



Posing with Magic...

Even Mocha couldn't help himself....he just had to roll!

Can't wait for more riding this weekend! It will be 85 degrees! Woohoo!! Finally a little warm weather!
On a side note, that denim shirt I have wrapped around my waist was my dads. I bring it with me every time I go horseback riding because it was dad who introduced me to riding when I was about 14. :) Here's to good memories, dad.

I love stories like that.

What a wonderful way to keep a memory of your Dad. I love horses, and always enjoyed riding. I envy you and your trail rides....you are a lucky girl!(Tracey is afraid of horses) Hope the weather this week-end is perfect for you. I have a feeling I will be going to an auction...oh big surprise there. Hugs, Kathleen

Wonderful pictures, Michele. You are very pretty... just in case you never heard that from a lady :-)

I have some of my Dad's shirts and a jacket... I want to get skinny enough to wear the jacket, but that is a long ways a way. Daddy was a bean pole :-)

Love the music to go wth your post.
That first photo is an extreme closeup, huh?

Glad you are enjoying your new hobby.

Did you really take Mocha horseback riding? LOL

Neabear said...

Great pictures. I need a relaxing time like that. Love the idea that you have your Dad's shirt. Cool.

Julie said...

yep - there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a woman. I think that is how the quote goes!

Patti said...

I love how you are keeping the memory of your Dad- that is awesome. Your ride looks just beautiful- what a wonderful way to spend some time!

fairmaiden said...

It can't get much better than that. The trails you ride on are so beautiful...reminds me of one of my favorite scenes from the movie 'First Knight' and Lancelot is riding through the forest of trees with Gwenovere. So romantic. And you look naturally beautiful. I love the sentiment of you wearing your Daddy's shirt. I am so much like that.

Joy said...

Aren't horse's noses so velvety? I just love the way a horse's skin (coat?) smells. Really.

Oh, it's looks so wonderful. Wish I was there, I have always liked to horseback ride but not much chance out here. I'd rather go where the views are as beautiful as yours.
