Pie and Sovereign live on the farm "Honeysuckle Faire" with my parents. Brian, my husband, and Maizie, our daughter, and I live 3 miles away in the adorable little Nutmeg Cottage that Brian restored to look like a quaint English cottage for us! I drive over to see the horses a zillion times a day, but Brian and Maizie don't always get as much horse time as they require. Fortunately, we are all equally crazy in love with animals! Last evening we all came over to groove about and enjoy the sweeties. Above is a photo of Brian bonding with Sovereign.
Here we are riding the boys. (Maizie was our photographer last evening.) Somewhere along the line in our 11 years of marriage I convinced Brian to take riding lessons. He did very well! He learned to walk, trot (posting too), and canter. He had a nice seat and soft hands. I ride Pie and Sovereign almost entirely with my seat and legs, and of course they don't have bits in their mouths, so it was a little tricky for Brian last evening. Sovereign took care of him, like I knew he would.
Our whole ride was perfumed with the fragrant honeysuckle. Maizie got a close-up shot of some.
We walked in the pastures. Next time, we might venture out onto the bridle paths. Pie and Sovereign were the very best of boys! I love them so! Maizie was a helpful horse assistant and talented photographer. She patiently waited while Mommy and Daddy rode. Brian is the calmest, kindest man in the whole world. Sovereign sensed this and was very good to him. We had a lovely evening ride! Oh, what joy!
