There is nothing imaginary about the benefits horses provide to the lives of people who love them and live with them.
Are they a lot of work?
Oh, hell yeah…and they eat money like there’s no tomorrow.
Oh and some, like this one:
Can injure themselves at the drop of a hat…or just standing still.
But, y’know, I can’t imagine life without them now.
Even with the headstrong ones:
And the little bit damaged ones:
And the playful, adorable ones:
Life is better with horses.
Past few days have been blazing hot, so we’ve been working long hours getting things done in the garden. Hubby’s been working long hours at work too. Some days, it seems too hard to do this Farm thing. So much to do, so little time to do it.
When we call it for the evening, sit on the deck with a drink, while waiting for supper to cook, we watch the horses wander, eat and play.
It’s all worth it.
Life is good.
Busy, hard, crazy and with lots of heavy lifting…
