Happy Birthday to my BABY!

Our youngest turns 6 today. Where in the world does the time go?





She has recently decided ponies are pretty cool....who could resist little Tonto anyway?
Can you just imagine these 2 competing in leadline?
(once they are both cleaned up a little...) :)

Happy Birthday, my sweet darling. I sure wish I could pause time, or at least slow it down - there will never be enough time to get my fill of having you by my side.
Your Daddy and I love you more than words could ever describe.

Don't wake me if I'm dreaming!

Well, it is finally happening! The ponies are coming to live with us tomorrow! It all started with a plan to bring Tonto to the house for our daughter's 6th birthday party - I asked her if she'd like to have a "pony party" - a very last minute idea, and she responded with a huge "YES!," so hubby, 3 kids, the wonderful neighbors and I got to work preparing for Tonto to just come stay the weekend. Well, one thing led to another, and now we have a fence, the stalls are almost complete, and everything is kind of just falling into place. I can't believe it. It has been a dream for so long, and now that it is just on the verge of coming true, I am terrified something is going to happen to prevent it from all working out. Don't you hate it when you have those feelings? Everything seems so perfect, then BOOM. The rug is yanked out from under you and you fall flat on your face, dreams and all. So, if I'm dreaming, please don't wake me up!

I promise I will post photos soon -

Happy Riding!

Sorry it's been so long!

Things couldn't be better - we are just so busy! I will post a longer update soon, but let me tell you, if I am dreaming, please DON'T wake me up!!

Scout is a dream pony - he is better than I ever imagined he could be. Tonto is doing awesome and is such a solid little fellow for my kids now. All 3 of my kids are beginning to ride independently and are even fighting over who is going to ride first! I love it!!

This weekend we are working on the barn and fence!! We have the screenings coming for the stall floor on Monday...things are coming along! I have photos and some video I will try to get up soon.

Sorry for being absent for so long - things never seem to slow down!!

Until next time, Happy Riding!
