Horsing Around

I have been around many different animals in my lifetime.  My parents had dairy and beef cattle, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats on the farm, and I learned to care for all of them.  However, cats were NEVER my favorites; my apologies to cats and cat lovers everywhere.  The one animal I didn’t have much experience with was the horse.    That said, Pat and I were invited to a “Cowboy Evening” at the ranch of Duffy’s groomer, Debbie.   It started with Debbie harnessing her horses for an old fashion wagon ride.  And I’m not talking about just any old horses, Debbie has CLYDESDALE draught horses!  BIG show quality beauties named Tory and Jewel.  I got real close to Jewel.IMG_3397Pat also made friends with Jewel.  These horses weight 2,000 pounds each and were super gentle.IMG_3391Debbie, and her husband John, had them ready for a wagon ride.IMG_3398IMG_3399Soon we were ready to go.IMG_3412Yes, it was a little chilly, but the wagon ride was worth it!IMG_3417IMG_3426Afterwards, we were treated to a great dinner and then live music and singing around a campfire.  It was a wonderful evening!

See ya,
