If you have horses, you need hay.
Every year my friend, Trisha's family throws a big party to celebrate (or mourn) their annual hay crop. This year's HayFest was held on the last Sunday in June.I like hay, but I like horses more. With Trisha's blessing, I arrived a couple hours early so that we could go riding. My mount for the day was Jacob the Fjord. Trish rode her Haflinger, Tino.
Tino is a very recent purchase. He and Jacob are still defining their relationship.
Fortunately, it's a lot smoother sailing with him and Trisha.
These two are going to be a fabulous team.
There were several small children at the party, so Trisha's wonder pony, Arwen, was rounded up...
and pressed into service.
Each child got a turn...
and she was patient and perfect for all of them.Such a good girl!
Such a fun day!
Thanks for the hospitality, Trisha, Chase, Norm, Donna and Russ!
