Been play'n with my ponies

The weather has been unseasonably warm here in northern North Dakota.   No long underwear or even a coat required when I go riding my horses in the evenings.  We basically just lost a month of winter weather!  Hurrah!!

After work I rush home, change into my barn clothes and head out to the boarding barn.

So much fun loping my girls.

Lots of grooming and few treats after the ride and before their blankets go back on.

Horses are special.

Some of them are really special!  LOL!

Photography by Christina Doyea--a present from my husband several years ago.


  1. Such a gorgeous post Brenda! How lucky are you to be surrounded by these fabulous horses ♥ and what an amazing gift from your husband to have them photographed with/for you! I've got a plain lamp shade that I am going to cover with muslin rosettes - so having a look back at your post/tutorial - Thanks for the inspiration ♥

  2. Sounds like a wonderful thing to do after a long day at work. The horses are beautiful!!

  3. I have been very excited about the weather! Being a former Texan myself, I really think the winters here are just rotten. But so far, it's been great and I've been getting lots of riding in! I'm still going to spend the winter in Texas because I can barrel race there. All. Winter. Long. And not have to worry about whether I'll get stuck in a blizzard or what-not.

    The photography is beautiful! And so are your girls!

  4. I'm so jealous! I am still that little girl that always wanted a horse! :) They are so special....beautiful animals. Been thinking about you & wondering what fabulous drop cloth projects you're dreaming up! I still haven't bought one but it's on my so many other things...:0)

    Take care & have fun w/ those gorgeous ponies!


  5. Awesome pictures Brenda! Your horses are beautiful!!
