We NEVER have rain around here in July! Not this year, we have had softball games cancelled and pastures too wet to ride horses in. Craziness! Last summer, we spent 60 days straight with no rain, so this was really a blessing. We were just talking about getting some hay for the horses, and now, suddenly we have green grass again.
Gracie has literally been riding 4-5 days a week. With all that training, that Lucy will do anything she asks. That horse hates the rest of us, but when she looks at Gracie, you can just see the love. She would do anything to please Gracie Pearl. She rides bareback a lot, jumping, galloping and going everywhere. Most days Gracie and Lucy are out riding before 7:00 in the morning so they can beat the heat. Sometimes Ally, Daniel, or Elana come along on Saxie. The girls go down to a neighbor's land and on the day of this picture, they went exploring in a nearby abandoned pasture. I love that they have places they can go and explore on horseback.
