lily made a friend(s) (as pictured above), and i was pretty happy to pass off my three year old onto someone else! all the girls got to groom the horses, lead them out to the pasture, feed them and go up to the hayloft. below is a picture of the gang (the owner is in the light blue rugby shirt). i believe that horse is midnight whose full name was something like Arabian ?? Egyptian King Midnight Explosion.
as i mentioned, it was a great day. their home was a more than hundred year old farmhouse. it was neat and the top of it had been renovated and a dance studio was built in. the hospitality, weather and horses made for a great day. this seems to be an annual trip, so hopefully, we can go again next year!
