We had a visit to my youngest daughter's property on the weekend.
I needed to pick up some lucerne hay which she sells, and some scrap oaten hay for the garden.
Here is my darling grandson, saying come on Nan come look at the horses J
He is growing up so fast now, nine years old already...
So off we go...
It was a beautiful sunny day J
My daughter lives on 21 acres of land with her partner and son.
When she was a teenager, she was introduced to horses...
And so started the addiction.
From the very small,
up to the big race horses....
I have lost count of how many of these majestic creatures she owns...
Thirty plus I think!
I worry about the cost of keeping them, dollar bills in one end and manure out the other J
But this is what they love to do...
Luckily this year has brought lots of rain, and there is plenty of green around J
Oh and we cant forget the faithful dogs that joined us on our walk.
This is Oscar
and here is Lily.
These two produce beautiful little puppies.
The race horses have been doing really well.
Finishing in the top four of their races J
My daughter and son in law train the horses themselves,
and they also train other peoples horses.
Not much time for anything else as
they both have jobs outside of horses.
They don't watch television...
Our Son in law is a very good farrier and gets plenty of work around the district...
Mum and baby,
Dainah and three week old Deliha.
A new little beauty...
Maybe one day she will be galloping around the track...
Oh sooooo cute J
I spotted a wild poppy, one more week and Spring is here...
And who could forget the pet goats J
Sandy, a rescued wild goat.
Cheeky girl she is J
I admire how my daughter loves animals. At times she has had rabbits, mice, cats, birds, racing pigeons, she has even had snakes as pets, to name a few J
She would gladly give any old stray a loving home J
Are you an animal lover? I know I am.
What pets do you have?
