Most of us horse owners aren’t fortunate enough to spend all day with our horses, and many of us are stuck in an office all day, instead of covered in dirt and dust at the barn like we ought to be. For those of us like me, who are chained to a desk most of the time, there are fewer joys in life better than seeing how our beloved horses are spending their time. Nothing brings a smile to my face quicker than getting a picture of my boy in the middle of my day.
Here’s a little sampling from this week:
And here are a few I took myself last night, when I got to the barn. There is something so rewarding about dragging yourself out to the farm after a long day at work, when all you want to do is curl up on the couch. I always get a second wind as soon as I get there and kiss that velvety nose.
Had a great ride last night after I took these, just a long and low hack in the big outdoor ring. We finished in almost total darkness, but Tucker didn’t mind. He sees better than me in the dark, so I let him lead the way back to the barn. I think it makes him feel important. Such a good boy.
