The Carousel

There has always been something magical about carousels at the carnival. With it's colorful horses and other exotic animals. The music that plays as you go around and around. Yes, the carousel is definitely a fun one! Who wouldn't want to ride a wild hog with tusks? Isn't that every girls dream? Well, probably not, but I am sure there is a little boy out there that would love to ride a wild hog! Just like this little boy. He was growling the entire time he rode the carousel. He was just too cute. He also had the most fun face painting I have ever seen! His mouth was the dragon's mouth! So, when he would growl, it looked like the dragon was growling. Too fun! I always loved the horses. Come to think of it, I just like anything that had to do with horses. While the big Cowpokes were riding big kid rides. My mother in law and I took Jules around to find her some rides she could ride on. The carousel was the only ride she was big enough to ride. Jules was really excited about riding a horse. She wasn't too sure what to expect, but it didn't take her long to get the hang of it. Of coarse your tongue does help out a lot when it comes to staying on a carousel horse. We all had a fun time.

Pearl still hasn't had her foal yet. She is looking mighty uncomfortable right now. I am going to guess she will have her foal with in the week. Yesterday Mr. Cowboy and I took Ozzie to the trainer. I am really excited about Corey riding Ozzie. Ozzie is going to be over at Corey's house for a month. I hope to be able to go over there after about a week and a half to go and ride. I am trying to not get my hopes up too much, with what happened with the last trainer that rode Ozzie. I know Corey is a good rider, so I am excited to see how Ozzie does in a week or so.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We were busy fixing fence, because my father in law's year old Belgium stud colt busted trough the fence to get to his two mares that were in heat. My father in law is in denial that his colt knows what to do. The colt is a male, he just KNOWS what to do. Sigh.......I sure hope that draft horse didn't breed to the two quarter horse mares. That just would be funky. Oh the things that go on here. Sigh.........

Love those pics! The kids are just adorable, lol. The carousel is the coolest thing when you're that age (and our age, who am I kidding? lol)

Fixing fence. Yep. I hear ya. I'm fixing something every day around here it seems like. The never ending chore. Don't have anything to do? Fix fence!

Love the pics!

You've been busy since I've been MIA!

congrats on the foal, she's a cutie!

Rules, rules everywhere. That is why we don't ride for any clubs around here. The rodeos Savannah does is through the church and then the other one starting in August is through a Christian organization, we have been very pleased with them. We have church playdays the 2nd Sunday of every month, free and end of year awards are given. Everyone is very supportive and it's alot of fun!

Your portrait photos are always so beautiful.

The carousel is still one of my favorites.;)

Girl-get those mares a shot of Lutilayse(sp?)so they won't settle. Talk to your vet, he'll know. I feel your pain with the family dealings, it's never easy.

I bet those foals would be cute. Call me a romantic, but they NEEDED each other. Isn't that sweet? ;)

I hope she has her foal before she explodes. Jules looks so cute on the carousel, she is a very pretty little girl.
