Riding Horses at Grandpa's

Linnea on Hot Shot

Christopher on Princess

Elijah on Rascal

Two little boys on two big horses.

Ruby on Paco.
He was pretty content to just chomp the grass
so that was a good speed for Ruby.

It was windy.
Betcha couldn't tell.

Andrew on Princess

Grandpa (my dad) loves to share his love of horses
with the children.
All of the kids have been on the back of a horse
before they could even walk.

He built this circle pen for them to ride in.

This is what they spent their time doing
while we were at the State Fair.

And people wondered if they were bummed to be left behind...
Yeah right.


  1. What kind of horses Melissa?

  2. ya know--I'm not even sure. I'll have to ask my dad. I'll let you know! Is "pasture pet" a breed???

  3. Melanie,
    I called my dad and he said that they are part Arabian and part Quarter Horse, except the pony, of course, who is a Shetland.

  4. A tad more horse background...Hot Shot is a 1/4 Arab 3/4 Quaterhorse, and Sheba (Momma) was 1/2 Arab and 1/2 "pony". Welsh maybe? We never did know. So Princess and Rascal would be a combo thereof.
