My parents run a herd of at least 100 brood mares and 15 stallions in their foundation bred, American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) breeding program, which you can read about here. The horses live on my parents property in Iowa and Missouri. These are some photos that Missy, my folks right hand gal, snapped last spring. They make me happy for so many reasons:
1) It is green in these pictures, which gives me hope that the winter will end.
2) The relationships between these mares and foals doesn't differ much from human mom and babes.
3) I love horses. Especially two brothers named Gus and Prince (Gus is in my avatar with the gnome, he is also my oldest baby.) We look forward to having our boys home in our barn sometime soon.
Thanks for sharing your photos Missy!
|Enjoying a beautiful day together.|
|This is what my hair looks like most of the time.|
|It takes a village to raise a child....|
|Quiet misty morning, when I would be sucking down coffee.|
|This is my favorite, for so many reasons.|
|Wait up mom!|
|Thing 1 isn't the only one who likes playing in the mud.|
|Snoozing in the sand, while mama considers fixing up the place.|
|Apparently I am not the only exhausted mother on the planet. :)|
I challenge you not to yawn when you look at this mama.
|Notice anything different about this pair?|
Seriously, how ridiculous is this?
Or should I say reDONKulous?
I hope that you all had a great weekend.
