Horses on the farm

My parents have a few horses on their farm. They raise Arabians there, but none of them are ridden. Their trainer moved to California and comes back only twice a year, not leaving enough time to break them. They are beautiful though, and this absent trainer loves to take pictures of them.

This is Annie. I had to scratch her back to get her to stand still enough. Otherwise she would knock me over telling me to scratch her back.

Azziza got bathed while we were there, and Katie helped Grammy out. Azziza has Cushings and wasn't shedding her winter hair, so we bathed her then clipped all her hair off. She felt much better after that!

Haseem and Dudley, who are half-brothers, trotted along the fence.

Katie wanted to go riding, so we went over to a friend's house and rode one of her horses. This is Tuffy. He's a POA, which stands for Pony of Americas. This is Katie's first time of controlling the horse all by herself. Way to go Katie! Remember, toes up and heels down!

  1. Beautiful photos! (Love that first one, especially since you shot it one handed while scratching a horse????!) Interesting information too - I've learned some things today!
