As someone who was raised with horses since I was 8 years old, thank you so much for sharing this beautiful photo, triggering my memory of a much happier time!

 

Just yesterday I ran into pics of me with my horses.

 

Big Ben is beautiful and the photo is so peaceful........priceless.Heart

**Not me, but one of my favorite horse photos, as mine would do the same thing. It just shows the love between a horse and their human!Heart

@hayseed00  Wow!  That is a beautiful photo, thank you for sharing.  

 

I love horses but have always feared riding them.  I took a trip to Yellowstone National park and visited a ranch while in Wyoming a few years ago.  I went horseback riding for the first time in my life at fifty something with a real cowboy!!  It was liberating.  My horses name was Homer and he was so patient and awesome, I will never forget that short bond we had together.  Smiley Happy  Thanks for making that memory come to me today.

@KingstonsMomIG  I am so fortunate to have had horses all my life, and no matter what I'm doing, and I look out at the pasture and see our horses, a soothing, peaceful feeling always comes to my soul.  I walked out and took a picture of our boy, Rocket.  He looked at me like,IMG_20200606_085743.jpg " You got any treats with you?"

Thank you for such gorgeous pictures of your horses.  They're very handsome.  I envy your life with them on your property.  Whenever we go for rides, I'm always on the lookout for cows & horses.  

 

The simple things in life sometimes can be so pleasing & make you smile.

@hayseed00 As an equistrian I love horses. I have been around and had horses my whole life.  Ben looks to be older and what about wonderful pasture he has. Please give him a carrot for me.
