Sydney had a friend from school, Keauna, stay over for the weekend. This afternoon our daughter bugged Hubby until he headed up to the Pond field and coaxed Cinnamon with a bucket of oats so the two of them could ride.
Keauna told me she’s rode a horse but never a pony. I think the only difference is size, don’t you? :)
Here’s a bunch of pics from the day.
Cinnamon gives a jerk and a shake and it surprises Keauna!
Cinnamon needed a bit of coaxing, I swear she’s the most stubborn pony!
Sydney has such a laugh on her face! I smile just looking at this picture LOL. :)
I tell the girls you have to let Cinnamon know you’re the boss because “Miss Stubborn” will walk all over you. They seemed to do a bit better and here’s a shot of them all running fast!
Yup, they’re getting the hang of it now!
After the blanket was hung up and the saddle put away…
…we head over to see a new calf but we were surprised to find one born only minutes before we got there.
Between putting Cinnamon back into the Pond field and driving over to see the new calves, I had an extra lens crammed into my jacket pocket. As I hopped into the truck I felt the lens let go and tried to grab it before the door slammed shut but all I heard was the sound of glass breaking! I calmly turned to Hubby and quietly said “I don’t even want to look.”
He replied with “They make ‘em everyday Honey.” I think he could see the tears welling up in my eyes. :(
I forced myself to open the door and look…
This is my newest lens and all I can say is thank God for cheapy UV filters! It truly did it’s job and saved the lens!
Quick, run out and buy yourself some UV filters if you don’t already have your lenses covered, they are much, much, MUCH cheaper than buying new lenses!! And while I’m out replacing my filter I think I’m going to pick up a bag or a tote or a fanny pack or something light to pack an extra lens safely… any suggestions?
