Silliness and Beauty

I've been out looking at different horses and their babies from different owners.
Today we had another "LOOKING" visit.
Look at that sweet little face.  She's about 3 weeks old. Fell in love with her today!  What a little sweetie. He coloring is perfect.  She is a paint/clydesdale cross.  She will be big and beautiful and she has a pink lip just like Loci!! Wow, she will fit right in. :)
This is her Daddy, Thunder.  You wouldn't know he is a stud other than the obvious.  Big and beautiful lover boy.
This little sweetheart is July.  She's an Appy as if you can't tell from all her spots.  She found a new love today. Me. :)  Her owner was amazed that she was so lovey on me since she is not normally like that with women?  Hmm must have been something she liked about me.  She's a lover that's for sure. I'm not usually and Appy lover but this one, I just loved her markings and personality.

The girls wanted to go see our big babies when we got home.  Mr. Black Jack is most certainly my horse because I'm the one that has taken the time to bond with him.  But he was willing to play along with the girls silliness tonight. 

These girls don't know how lucky they are to have two animals that are so mellow.

Some Disappointment and Some Fun

I'll start off with the disappointment. We are not getting Baby, the paint horse I previously posted about.
The owner decided that she was not going to be able to sell her.  I'm ok with it, as I knew in my heart we weren't going to get her.  It will give us time to get things finished for the 2 horses we already have and to possibly build another stall to prepare for another horse coming to heaven.  So as of right now, we are still a 2 horse family. We will keep looking for another horse for Bear and one for Pixie.  Pixie road a halflinger and fell in love with her.  She is a sweet and calm 4 year old.  Pixie said she would love to have her for her horse.  We will have to do some wheeling and dealing to pull that one off.  Then of course we will be looking for the ultimate in horse for Bear. As I've said before he would like a Buckskin quarter horse, gelding.  Hoping that maybe I can pull it off for his birthday next year!  He has the perfect saddle and now he needs the perfect horse.

The fun part, we had our cousins up for a week.  Boy what a busy time we had.  We took them on some adventures in the U.P. that I went on when I was around their age and a little older.  I'll leave you with some of the beautiful places we went.  We are so fortunate to live in this place we call home!  SP
