Here is my Maizie girl yesterday afternoon with her pony, Foggy BEFORE OUR FAMILY RIDE!!!!
Our temperatures were an amazing 60 degrees and the sunlight was magical. It was very pretty for November in Pennsylvania. Brian is on Sovey, above, and Maizie is on Foggy sweetie boy. I am on the chubby Pie Pie but you can't see us because I am taking all the photos. We rode in the field and through the woods.
My mom led Foggy for us to keep Maizie safe.
Here we are letting the horses enjoy a post ride grazing session. They were all so good and deserved the yummy clover they found on the hayfield paths.
The weather has been perfect for riding for the last week. Prior to that we had the wicked October snow storm and lost the electric at our house for four days. Brian, Maizie, Noodlebug, and I moved over to the farm and lived in my grandmother's (empty but furnished) house because there was electric there. I got to live where my horses live!!!!! I was in heaven for a week! Sometimes you really do get what you wish for. No internet there, which explains my blogging absence (I promise to catch up on all my favorite blogs soon). Tons of down trees in our woods and pastures. Luckily, I put the horses inside the barn on the night of the storm because many trees fell on the fence. If they had been out, Pie would have certainly stepped over the fence and encouraged his friends Sovey and Foggy to do the same. I shudder to think about it.
A week before the storm, my friend Terry came to ride with me one sunny afternoon. Terry rode with me in November of 2009 and we had an equally good ride this year. Here she is, below, on Sovereign.
