Great views and horsey tantrums!

We had some friends over for a barbie yesterday the weather was really great and we wondered around our property .They have two little girls aged 5 and 6 and all they wanted to do was cuddle the lambs and pat the horse.

We took the kids fishing in the dam the paddocks look great at the moment with having the spring rains and all the dams are full. The fish weren't giving up that easy so we went up to the hill up the back the view is amazing you have a 360' view of the surrounding area which is breath taking. There is a lot of quartz on the hill and if you look carefully you can find pieces that have turned into crystal, the girls loved these and took home a number of prized rocks.

Don't you love snap shot :) Jess wanted to take a picture of me and if you look really close you can see Buddy in the left hand corner. I put him in this paddock the other day and boy did he have a tantrum. When I was leading him up there he started pulling back then he rear up and when I put him in the paddock I gave him a hug and said he'd have to stay here for a little while until we fixed the fence in the front paddock, well he started kicking and rearing then he ran off along the fence line snorting and kicking his legs in the air carrying on like a little kid then he would run back to me for another hug and rub then he would run off again kicking and bucking and snorting then he ran back again and stood there :( I felt terrible leaving him there but it is only till we fix up one of the fences which is prone to flooding so it not and easy fix.
The girls really loved riding in the back of the ute! The mattress was for the boney parts

Wow! What amazing views and such happy faces.

Poor Buddy. Looks like a great pasture out there, though.
Why do you think he prefers the other one? Is it closer to the house?

My Baby Doll prefers the large front pasture/paddock but we like to give the grass a break, so she spends most of her time in the back paddock.
She hasn't yet had a temper tantrum about it, but she has mastered the horsie pout! hehe

I love that you've got crystal growing there on your property, too.
We were pet sitting two years ago and the family had a large hill just encrusted with crystals. We had a blast finding them and bringing some home with us. So pretty!

So, what kind of fish do you have in your pond?

Hi Lisa
Horses are herd animals and they feel safer in numbers I know he doesn't like being up there by himself I'm hoping to get another horse to keep him company

Does Baby Doll have neighbor horses around her?

I love the crystals too and they say where there is quartz there is usually gold :)

We have rainbow trout in our dams

Oh the fun of riding in the back of a ute or a panel van - never had the luxury of a mattress though.

Thank you I am over the flu, the cough is taking it's time to go though but is getting better every day.
