Aww! they're sooo pretty! Isn't bob the all white one? What's the other one's name? the speckly one had at least three feet off the ground in most of those pictures! =)

Yep, Bob's the one in the middle who was too busy eating to run around with the others;)
The spotted one is Freckles, and the other one is Dewey.
They were having a lot of fun=)

Great pictures!
In #7, Dewey looks like prancing Breyer horse=)  Love it!
Bob looks so cute in #13;)

I'm so glad I decided to bring the camera with me when I let the horses out on pasture for the first time.  I only wish I'd caught it on film, too.
Dewey is such a handsome boy, but he can be quite clumsy at times.   He tried to do a sliding stop in front of the barn and ended up loosing his balance and falling over.  Nothing was hurt but his pride, but he looked so embarrassed;) 
Freckles, on the other hand, can do some awesome sliding stops!  That little pony still has a lot of life left in him=)
Bob does look cute:)  Dewey kept trying to get him to run around, too, by running circles around him and kicking at him playfully, but Bob would have none of it - "Why would I run around when there's all of this wonderful grass to eat?!".
I think my personal favorite is either #1 or #4 - Freckles is so cute:)

Love these! So fresh and springy and hopeful!
Speaking of horses... it's not really looking like I'll be able to do any "conditioning" riding before I come out there... so for our ride(s), I'm just gonna have to hop on, and man up. (Lou's butt burn, here I come!)

Hey, that's okay:)  I think you'll be just fine, and we'll have tons of fun!  I can hardly wait!=D
LOL! We have a sheepskin pad that we can put on the saddle so you don't have that problem;)
Oh yeah, and that little spotted maniac who's 25+ going on 3 (aka Freckles) is what you'll be riding:D
And I just realized that Alex will get to go riding with us because I won't have to "steal" his horse for someone else to ride this time - he'll be very happy about that:)

So Alex did not give his permission and his blessing?
Just teasing.   =)
We must get a sewing day on the calendar soon - we can talk about it sometime later.
So good to see you on Sunday!

Actually, he did give his blessing and his permission when you rode him..after I talked him into it;)
Yep, gotta do that soon!
Oh, Sunday was so much fun!  I wish we could have stayed for singing, but Mom actually lasted a lot longer than I thought she would, so that was good.  We'll have to have a picture exchange:)

Oh, Tasha!
*Laughing hysterically*  Permission to ride -  Oh! Haha. . .  Oh dear.  That would take some talking into... You're a wonder, my dear.  And to only think - after all that, he refused to canter, and I was forced to use the reins on his stubborn hide!  It did work like a charm, if you recall... I'll have to remember that in future.
An-nyway. . . =)
Yes, your Mom did really well.  I'm so glad she was feeling good enough to come!  
I missed you sadly for the singing, but there's always a next time.

I've found the end of the reins quite effective in the past;)  Dewey is a funny boy - he refuses to canter when Glenda rides him, too. 
"Permission to ride (eat), sir."  (remember in James Herriot?;)
Yes, there's always next time:)  We'll have to go when it's warm enough for us to go swimming!

Wow those are great pictures Tasha! They are all so pretty. I didn't know Freckles was so frisky :).
