When you see the first bluebird of the season, it just has to be a sign that it’s going to be a special day!
No, that is not a “texture”! Hubby was trying out his new camera and it’s just out of focus!
Can a mother brag?!!!
Lovely eldest daughter won an Artist’s Choice Award for her hand painted egg for the Eggshibition benefit for Youth Home where troubled juveniles receive counseling and a place to stay during their treatment. Artists and celebrities paint an egg which will be auctioned off during a gala event. This year her egg featured thoroughbred horses racing at Oaklawn Park here in our state. Here’s a shot of her winning egg! It’s my favorite of all the ones she has painted!
The miniature horses have arrived at daughter’s farm! They are so adorable—they look like toys! If only their dispositions were so adorable! They came from a herd of about 70 miniature horses, so they had not been handled much. Hopefully with time and attention they will become socialized! They weigh 70 to 80 pounds—really, they look like toys!
On Saturday, granddaughter “J” had her party at the farm. The terrible storms that wreaked havoc on our state last week were followed by lovely weather. It was a glorious day!
Even the dogs had a great time!
Max the corgi arrived at the farm as a surprise for “J” last Christmas. Herding everything in sight is his job whether it be cows, horses, cats or children! He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body, but I think the has “little man syndrome”! He runs around the farm like he owns the place!
The boys preferred to ride little ATV’s instead of horses.
The girls were in their element and the weather was perfect!
Am I too old to ride? Maybe I can persuade “C” to come riding with me! I fear we might have trouble hoisting our middle-aged selves into the saddle!
This looks a little scary—it’s been probably 15 years since I’ve been on a horse!
But it sure looks like fun!
“J” had the best birthday celebration ever!!!
“C” was busy working, so she missed the party, but her sister and niece were there for the fun. We’re both looking forward to the celebration of Easter later this week. Prayers go out for those who lost loved ones across the South from the terrible storms and tornadoes. Sounds like we may have another round tomorrow night. Hope and pray all will be safe. Blessed Holy Week to all!
