Since our cross country move and everything else going on I have not been able to participate in the fun weekly blogging events like I Heart Faces. So I am getting myself back on track starting today with this weeks photo challenge - bright and vivid.
Yesterday I took my girls to their first Horse Show, the proceeds went to help our local Fire Dept. When I was younger I rode hunter/jumper. My horse's name was Digbee. I loved him so much and I loved everything about horses, I could not get enough of the gentle giants.
When I was older I bought a yearling Quarter/Paint and named her Autumn Skyy. She was the first horse I raised, trained and broke myself and she was fantastic! When she was 4 I had to sell her due to my multiple knee surgeries and couldn't ride or visit her like I used to. She went to a wonderful home, but I vowed someday I would have horses again.
I am hoping that one of my girls will find the love and joy of being around horses. I am hoping they will see the simple elegance, hear the sound of hooves hitting the ground, feel the softness of their muzzle and fall in love. Then I will pass down my saddle, tack and boots and watch joy on their face as they feel like their flying on the back on a Pegasus.
