Sunday Renate had plans to haul to a local facility for some XC schooling, so naturally we made it a group outing and OF COURSE I brought my camera :) we didn't have to be there until midday, so after chores, we got to have a pretty leisurely morning! This included several cups of London fog and chai for me, plus a decadent breakfast. I ate better on this trip than I have in years, and fully expected to come back weighing 10 points more than when I arrived, lol. Magically I did not, probably because we did SO MANY THINGS the whole time so I was able to burn those calories right back off :)
|After chores Drifter consented to almost snuggle me on the couch.
|Guarding Renate's stuff in the barn. She's the cutest.
|Gatsby and Cowboy being adorable while we were doing chores.
|This was actually on the way home from XC schooling, we stopped to grab some lunch to eat outside on the patio and Vesta was fascinated by Renate's milkshake lol.
|The XC place boards horses and there were some CUTIES. They were super interested in what we were doing outside their paddocks lol.
Now for the photos from my real camera! They're a bit out of order as well, but I got some nice images of Renate warming up in one of the fields, then we wandered all over the facility trying to find the safest XC jumps (there was ice around some of them, and some were into or out of turnouts containing horses, so none of those were great options), and then finished up in their outdoor arena so she could pop over some stadium fences! We got to be ground crew to help set poles ;) and Renate even had time to jump around a few times with adventure unicorn 2.0!
