A short ride..

We did get to ride a bit this past Monday. We saddled up. Toby goes nuts when we leave the pasture area without him. He is eyeing us closely. He is so attached to having his momma with him.

Before we could get going, the hubby takes a call...

And talks and talks....................................... Bunny is getting a little anxious and starts to walk away.


The weather was nice. It was a little sunnier than I had expected. I forgot the sunscreen! I am pink today.
We rode to a friends house up the dirt road from us, the horses love the attention they get from the neighbors.

Heading back..........................Hubby and Bunny from the back....
Hubby and Bunny from the front... Bunny being patient , hubby not being patient while I snap the picture...
The view of the old homestead with the hill behind our house...


Back in the pasture... isn't the little boy, Toby, so cute?? We always ride in the pasture when we return so that Toby gets used to us on top the horses.


After our ride we placed a blanket and saddle on Toby. He just stood still. He is such a good boy.
We did imprinting with him when he was a baby, but it has been a long time since we placed anything on his back. When he was about 5 weeks old, I had tied my flannel shirt around him to have him know the feel of something around his girth. He took that well and actually seemed to care less. I think he takes after his mellow momma quite a bit. He is 2 now and we really need to get him to be more respectful. He thinks we are his buddies a little too much. More later on our progress with this little guy.

It's all good, we had a great time riding. And I can' wait til tomorrow when we ride again.
YEEHAW!
