Archive for the tag “horses”


Our neighbors rescue horses, clydesdale’s to be specific.  They then decided to breed them.  Their babies are so darned cute!  Someday I will have a more powerful lens to get a more close up picture.


Checking on one of my neighbors


Buckskin or Dun?

I don’t know anything about horses other than I think they are exquisite looking.  This is one of our neighbors horses.  Since I know nothing I went straight to the internet to try to find out what kind of horse this is.  I don’t know if it is a Dun or a Buckskin.  Either way it is good looking.




Neighbors were out and about




Barnyard Meeting

Glen always gets up before I do.  With my crazy work schedule it is a guarantee that I am sleeping in when I can.  So Sunday morning he gets up and notices a meeting taking place at the end of our driveway.   Horses belonging to the neighbors to the east and the horses and cows belonging to the neighbor to the south.  They appear to have been discussing something important.


Back Country Horseback Ride

On our last full day Glen and I went on a half day horse back ride.  It was a cool rainy day, but the horses were nice and warm so we didn’t get cold.  It was a very fun and different thing to do, however, my backside was definitely sore by the end of the ride.


My horse is the butt on the left.  His name was Chickasaw.


Meet Glens horse.  His name was Calhoun.


Off we go…..There was a group of six of us.  There was a couple from Boston and the other couple was from upstate New York.  The couple from New York had a very had time controlling their horses.


Entering a nice treed area….getting close to our lunch break.


Here I am waiting my turn to get off my horse so I can eat my lunch.  The lady in the background with the cowboy hat on was our guide.  Her name was Carrie and she was very knowledgeable about the area and….well….horses.


We took a different trail back to the Corral.  The guide called it “the hoo doo’s”.  It was a very rocky area that was affected by an earthquake.  All the rocks were laying every which way.


When we got back to the corral where the horse trailer was, this bull buffalo was walking down the road.  Our guide was like we need to hurry, hurry, hurry and get off these horses.  She said that buffalo scared her far worse than bears, because buffalo were so very unpredictable and fast.


After our horseback ride we decided to drive over to an area that we hadn’t been to yet, the Tower/Roosevelt area.  It was a cloudy rainy day and we didn’t see much and I was having a very hard time keeping my eyes open and kept nodding off.   We had decided earlier that we would take a side/scenic road, which turned out to be a non paved road that was rougher than rough.  Along the way we came across a momma black bear and her cub.  SCORE!  The only critters that were on our list to see that we didn’t see were a moose and wolves.  Maybe someday we will be able to see them in the wild.

A View From the Driveway

I was out in the yard with the hound dogs and heard a horse whinny.  So I went into the house and grabbed the camera, walked down to the end of our driveway and saw this beauty.  It is one of our neighbors.
