Giddy Up

A couple weeks ago, my mom's neighbor invited us to her ranch where she keeps three horses. Woohoo! We were excited, though not really prepared (the boys only had shorts and Crocs....we'll come prepared with proper cowboy attire next time...or at least jeans and sneakers). We enjoyed feeding and riding her sweet horses! Apparently the boys didn't scare them too much, so we're welcome to make a trip there anytime we're in Houston! Thanks so much to Ms. J for sharing with us!

Yes, that's my mom on Lady and my "cowboy" on Comanche....we found out after he'd been riding him for a little while that he's not fully bridle trained...or whatever it's called. Fun, fun for Sandman! He did get a Horsemanship Badge or something when he was in Boy Scouts! Nugget wasn't a fan of getting on the horse. I think being up so high scared him, but he was so content to ride the saddle in the back of the pickup- probably for a good 15 -20 minutes. We can't wait to go back!
