Horse Sense

Well, Justin finally realized one of his dreams since we moved out here to this one-acre lot. We took a couple of trips to Farmington to get his horse, Holy Moe. We also had to get some fence sections to protect our struggling garden from the big new animal! So, after Justin spent the morning helping a friend with a tractor, he saddled up Moe and gave rides around the pasture! Here are just a few of the fun pictures!

Allison takes a ride by herself. She really wasn't very comfortable up there, but she was a trooper!

Marianne with her crazy hair. She was a little nervous on her first ride, but couldn't get enough of riding Moe once she knoew she wouldn't get hurt!

Marianne holding Bo on Moe. She was loving it! Him...not so much.

Justin coming back from his ride with Bo. Bo was much happier on his daddy's lap and didn't make a peep!

Justin takes Marianne for a ride with him.

Allison really liked riding with Justin. I think she felt safer on his lap than all alone on such a big horse.

Justin giving Moe a bath. He just kept saying over and over, "What a good-looking horse." I have to agree.

In my attempts to have this baby, I thought maybe this would be a good idea. I think I could have gone into labor just getting on the thing!

Whatta ya think? A few laps around the pasture and this baby's on it's way!

That really is a fine looking horse. And I loved the photos with the kids riding him. Good luck this week with having your baby. We'll be thinking of you!

HOT MAMA! I love the horse pictures, the look on bo's face on the horse is so cute. I'm thinking about you this week. Good luck..

How fun!! I laughed so hard when I saw you up on the horse! That is so cool, and I love his name :-) Jud would love to get a horse someday...and a buffalo...

it just looks so wrong for you to be that pregnant and on top of a horse. :)
justin, i am so glad you get to have your horse so close. too bad aaron isn't around to ride with.
