Gran-niece Anna spent the night Sunday night. We started off as soon as we got to the ranch in the art studio painting a beautiful work of art. A Bay horse. Then we packed a snack and drinks, saddled up Bailey and Pony Boy and headed down to the tank for some conversation and checking out a secret spot that would be our future camp-site. (Sorry, no pictures, it’s a secret after all)We found a great location and set up our perfect little table from some nearby branches. We tied the ponies to a tree with their halters and they munched on the snack of carrots that we brought them while we had our juicy juice and animal crackers. Anna brought her sketch book with a little butterfly charm which Bailey tried to eat.We gave him a cracker and packed up our viddles. We got back on the ponies to try to track down some deer. We saw plenty of tracks!
We rode back to the barn before sunset.
Anna got the ponies some hay and water, while I unsaddled them and put them in their stalls. Anna created two more masterpieces, a donkey and goat before we had a great dinner of ribs, corn, salad and bread cooked by Uncle Tom.
We watched horse movies til 10. and fell asleep dreaming of tomorrow’s adventure……..
