Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring! This time, while I rode Rejoice again, Margaret rode her horse Jester and had a friend ride Ladyhawke. All Kennebec Morgans!! Jester and Rejoice have the same dam and Jester and Lady share the same sire. Unfortunately instead of a lovely late spring day, we had one of the first intensely hot and humid days of the year. It was definitely a bummer, but the ride was mostly in the shade of the woods and we had a great time!  most of the fences were 3' coops but we found a small log and this hay to jump haha Until we didn't. 😑 We brought along a third friend who rode Margaret's older mare, Ladyhawke. She's a good rider but hasn't known Ladyhawke for very long and didn't realize how much of a cranky boss mare she could be at times. She kicked Jester right in the front leg just about halfway through the ride, and while the cut itself ended up not being a big deal in the

Photo Challenge - Day Two

Yeah, so I forgot about this Photo Challenge thing yesterday. Whoops. :P So here is "Day Two", Saturday!

Here is the cutest kid in the world eating his Saturday morning breakfast, just as a five year old should: in front of the TV! LOL! Yes, this child devours toast. I am frightened to think of how much he will eat as a teenager. :) Now that I look, he is even wearing his 2007 Maine Sire Stakes t-shirt! ha ha ha

Ah, the joys of Saturday morning household chores! :P

It was such a gorgeous November morning, with the temps well into the 60s! Amazing! I am still able to soak hay for Dreamy. Here is her hay soaking for tonight...

Clarence thought it was mighty funny that one of our barn cats, Mac, wanted to give me kisses while I was filling stall water buckets. He kept trying to rub his dirty kitty face all over me.

Yeah, I'm not liking it that much....LOL!

At one point while I was cleaning the barn, I looked over to find my son doing this.....LOL! I was laughing so hard I had a hard time taking the photo. I asked him what he was doing, to which he replied, "I'm taking it's tee-pee, Mama!" ROFL! He got the T.P. part of taking a T.P.R. Wow, I really have raised my child in the barn. :) And come to find out, there is something odd going on with the gray "revving" sound mechanism that he is so astutely taking note of its heartbeat.

While filling the outside water tubs, Clarence wanted to come with me to visit Reva. She was being her usual sweetheart self, and we both were giving her love. Clarence surprised me by giving her kisses. It was pretty darn cute!

Aw!!!!!! So cute! Can you see the MUD in that corner of her paddock? UGGGGG! The rain has been crazy!!!!!!! All three mares need a spa day.

Tonight is the banquet for the Maine Horse Association. I am going with my friend Shelly and we are super exicted! I will post pics tomorrow. :)


  1. All I have to say is that my biological clock is on overdrive after seeing those cute pictures!!!

  2. LOVE your new challenge! You have captured some priceless moments by having your camera with you! My FAVORITE is of C kissing his mare back-lit by the sun rays. I can see it framed, and a favorite 20 years from now. Thanks for sharing these great moments. Also, your Lucy dog is way too cute (with her blanket on) :)
