A Mid Week Wagon Ride

Poor Ike and Duke have been neglected lately.
Aside from being fed, a few rubs on the nose, "Hello's" in the morning and bringing them inside at night, the poor beasts haven't been doing much "work".

So they were quite excited to go for some mid-week exercise.
They enjoy it.

Many people think that horses don't enjoy pulling wagons/sleighs etc, but, now that I am an equine expert, I am absotootly sure that that isn't true.
At least when it comes to Ike and Duke.
They love it.
I think they love it because they get so much attention.
From us.
The kids.
The neighbours.
The cars driving by.
The kids playing outside of their homes.
The dogs sitting outside their homes.

I mean, really.
Not everyone gets to see such beautiful {happy} creatures trotting by through their neighbourhood.

Especially when there are cats and a German Shepherd dog along for the ride.

My life is a freak show.

Your life is NOT a freak show, it is indeed amazing and one many of us would love! I am so in love with those two horses!

That sounds SO cool!I love reading your blog because it's not the typical mommy stuff and I get to live vicariously through you with horses and your gorgeous german shepherd (without dealing with horse poop and corgi attacks - LOL!).

They're beauties, and I strongly believe it's true that they enjoy their work!
I believe most animals live for the work they do.
That cats along for the ride are sweet. :)

If its a freak show, it's a big and small furry, happy one (aside from the ahem corgi incident with you know who...) ! Patty/BC

What wonderful horses. I can imagine the looks you would get taking these out. Especially with cats and a dog along for the ride. Loved seeing these.
