joy ride (friday foto finder: horse)

In June, Phoebe got to go on a field trip with her Daisy troop to a horse stable, and the visit included a ride on one of the stable’s horses. Given her current love of all things equine, Phoebe was over the moon.

The horse was very tolerant. (Not shown are the photos of the horse being surrounded by 10 excited 6-year-old girls.)

Phoebe would love to be able to do this more often…

The visit also included a lesson on how to care for horses. Phoebe was enthralled to be brushing a real horse.

This week’s friday foto finder theme is “horse¹.” To see what horses others have corralled, check out the friday foto finder blog.

¹ Coincidentally, we watched National Velvet for the first time tonight. It was rather startling to see Angela Lansbury playing the role of a teenager. (She played one of Elizabeth Taylor’s sisters.) I suppose it would have been more startling to see her playing the role of horse. Though come to think of it, she did play the role of a teapot.

  1. LOLling at “Teapot”. It is always good to see the young having fun doing the things they like. Nice shots

  2. I love Angela Lansbury.

  3. Determined little face diligently brushing…

  4. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but when I was probably Phoebe’s age, I went through a brief stage where like every other little girl, I wanted a horse. And then my mother, like all mothers do, explained to me how much work it would be. And unlike every other little girl, instead of assuring my mother that I’d have NO PROBLEM doing all that work if only I could have a horse, I thought to myself “Huh, that actually doesn’t sound like any fun at all.” And then I went on with my life and forgot about horses.

    I’ve pretty much applied this line of reasoning to every aspect of my life since then, which explains a lot.

  5. Your footnote made me laugh SO hard. Like this:
    visualize —
    giggle under my breath for the next half-minute.

  6. Wonderful shots. And just why are all small girls so fascinated by horses? :D
