Visit With Mom

My mom came to visit for a few days.

We got to go on a trail ride. Mom rode Jordan, a nice dark bay ranch gelding. It was a really hot day and we had a nice evening trail ride in the shady woods!

Then, back in the arena, my mom asked to ride my spotted pill! She has never ridden the spotted pill. She even trotted him! He did pretty well for her considering he can be a bit stubborn with new riders. My mom seemed more confident then I remember....I think she has been riding a lot of different horses and that makes you a better rider, I think!

I don't know if those of you who have been following my blog for a long knew this, but my mom no longer has her beloved gelding, Dusty. It is a long story and not mine to tell, but in a nutshell he is retired and living happily on a farm! My mom can visit him any time and I would like to, too. He was very special to my mom and I had something made for her to remember him by, which I will share with you in a future post! And she is always welcome to ride My Boy, too!

Anyway, back to the ride. After we got my horses back home and were putting them in their pastures, my mom posed with my roany pony!! She thought Luna was very cute.

The roany pony was a bit peeved that my mom pulled her head up from grazing on our lawn (pitiful as it is, as you can see from the photo!) to pose for this photo. My pony's head just looks huge here! My mom actually made the comment as she caught her from the pasture "She is almost outgrowing this halter." I hope her head doesn't grow too much more or she'll be wearing a draft size halter, hee hee!

I am hoping to get some Luna time this weekend! I really want to climb on her and do a little riding, so I will let you know how that goes next week!

Looks like you had as good of a time as we did when mom visited here! Everyone looks so small up on your boy. I know he is pretty tall but mom isn't short and she looks little on him too!
I can't wait to see pix of you riding Luna in a SADDLE!! That will be exciting.

Some people's moms are the spotted pills, not their horse! All I can say is that you have one cool mom. LOOK AT HER! Maybe she would like to be my mom for a while too. She might like New England.
