GiddyUp Little Horsie




Yesterday we went with a group of friends horseback riding to a place that just opened up the week-end before called K R Stables. Talk about a cute place.............it was picture perfect (must have been if I printed 85 pictures at Walgreens already). It's probably been 15 years since I rode a horse and this was Kevin's 1st time! That must explain why I'm a little sore and stiff today especially in the legs.




The owners Kurt & Kay Ross just opened their dream last week-end. Here is a picture of them in front of their guest house cabin. Inside was so cute including 2 beds and a loft bed over them, mini kitchen, wood stove etc. It would be my "dream cabin" if it only was on a body of water so I could fish. It paid to keep my eyes open as different animals were showing up all over the place. I saw a llama, sheep, donkey,pony, kittens and of course lots of horses.


















It was a perfect fall day even tho the temps were almost 80 by the time we got back at noon. You sure can tell how pretty the leaves are when you look at the chicken coop. I'm not too fond of outhouses but this one with curtains on the window and candles and potpourri burning inside was really nice.






















Here is a picture of just Kevin & I after our ride and then a group shot of some us. I must not have gotten the memo about wearing cowboy hats & boots. Kevin actually traded in his golf hat for a straw hat borrowed from Chris.























Kurt (the owner) had the wagon hooked up to his big beautiful Clydesdale's "Bill" and "Bob"! What a great picture they made especially with the 3 "cowboys" driving. Notice how the leaves are just starting to turn too.









Here's a picture of Kevin on his horse and the owner Kay is holding the reigns. They own quite a few acres so it was fun following the trails thru all their woods and the scenery and weather could not have been more perfect.

I can definitely see scrapping this adventure. It sure was a fun time and it was only $20 for a trail ride that was a little over an hour long. Could really see doing this in the early evening and coming back and roasting marshmallows on the campfire.............couldn't you?
