Fat and Happy they are!!

Sometimes in life we get so caught up in the rush of the things that consume our daily lives that we forget to stop and watch the horses! On a daily basis we always have SOMETHING to do! We never have just a free day to do whatever we want.. When those rare occasions come that we are home on a weekend and we have free hours DD and I love to just go anywhere around our place. Whether it be down to the creek to play or out in the back pasture watching the horses graze or just watching the sunset it is such a reminder of how precious our time is. This past weekend we had one of those times with some free hours on Saturday night, DD and I just enjoyed being outdoors and decided to take a ride to the back of our property into the 20 acres where half of our horses call home.

We love going out there to watch them, it just makes my heart light and we love to see what funny things they will do when they finally spot us spying!!

There they graze down in the hills...

Some close gun shots got their attention!!

All is well again as they eat!

Love them....

I like to call these ones "The Three Stooges" HA!

DD's black beauty Ebony..

Mr Handsome Pete

They love to be close :)

Lets not forget Bob our Jersey steer!!


  1. I love those times too! Then I remember this is why I live this many miles from town and yes it is beautiful and the best place in the world! I wish I could have joined you on your little outing...

  2. I wish I could have been there with you too. Makes me long for the country air, and the serenity of enjoying the outdoors.
    Love Mom

  3. I love the photos of your horses. It is nice to have a few hours of free time.
    I like to sit out on our deck,weather permitting these days and watch the wildlife we have.
    Have a great day

  4. I am a people lover. I love to be with people. Among people. Talking to people. My husband on the other hand, can find himself perfectly comfortable all by himself. We balance each other out. But there is something to being able to search out that solitude and just sit and be quiet. It's those times when God really speaks.

  5. lucky you, to have such a nice big chunk of land..it is lovely! Of course so are your horses!

  6. Can we move in with you for a week of "country time"? I long for life to be slower...and the sad thing is, compared to most people I know we ARE slower paced! It all goes by too quickly!

  7. Whitmer~ You crack me up!!! You know how our lives were before in the city... And I can honestly say there isn't one thing I regret about moving the distance out...I feel truly blessed!
