simple life of a grand mother
The little ones look so cute in their riding hats.
I asked my daughter to take the pictures, i did not see them riding yet.
They are adorable! I always wanted to ride horses as a girl.
I was always afraid of horses, i don't know how she did it.
What fine youngsters. I like sturdy children.
Thank you Joanne,me too.
So many surprises from you Yael. I am so pleased the children are following in their mother's footsteps and out with the horses. Life is life in your country too and we so often over here think it cannot go on as normal. I am glad it does, for both you and your family.
Thank you Rachel.Sometimes i wish i should have the ability to tell more about us here,there will be a lot of suprises:)
They are so cute - and brave. I have always been scared of horses, even when I used to ride them.
I am also scared, but i love horses,now that i am old i regret that i did not try to get closer to them.
My childhood horse 'Misty' was a beast. She would throw me off every time I rode her. I became so used to it that I accepted it as part of riding. My wife was thrown from her horse about 3 years ago, and broke some ribs. Neither of us have any intention of ever riding again!
There is a time for everything.
How exciting for the kids! And your daughter is lucky, having had horse jobs. As a child I was crazy about horses and learned to ride from age 12. That was in America. I think in Israel I've never had the chance to be on a horse. Shabbat shalom, Yael.
Shabat shalom Dina, not many children did what she did as a child,it was not easy as a mother:)
Ha, I can imagine (that it was not easy)!
Wonderful the children are trying horse riding! Such a long way to fall I have always thought [and therefore have never tried but have always admired those who do].
My thougts were like yours, Shirley, that's why i never tried.
I wish I had grandchildren Yael (maybe one day) because when I see what lovely grandchildren you have and the things you do together makes me teary. I am scared of horses too, although I have ridden very gentle and well tamed ones before. Greetings Maria x
Thank you Maria, grandchildren are fun and happiness but also many hours of worries and sleepless nights:)
Your grandchildren look so cute! It is so fine to be able to ride - and to build up a special relationship with such a beautiful animal. (I can't ride - found it very high to sit on them... Have you ever read about the Houyhnhnms by Swift?
thank you britta, now after googling i know more about that horses:)
Good to see some normality in your part of this mixed up crazy world.I too partake in horse pursuits but stick to the carriage driving sort.
Thank you Judy,it is good to "feel normal" from time to time:)
My daughter loved horses from the time she was a little girl. We had lots of those horse models they sell to collectors, she started that early. Also the "Little Pony" toys, my wife kept a big trunk full of the Little Ponies and still has them as a remebrance of when my daughter was a child.When my daughter outgrew the pony, we got her a nice mare and she rode until she went off to school in Canada. A few years ago, she got a horse that was in bad shape, being neglected, and she took care of him. Now she has him at a stable in the city where she works and goes out at after work to groom him and enjoy his company. They go for trail rides when the weather is good. The horses name is Seamus. If my daughter moves from that city we are going to bring him up here on the mountain. I have had horses here before and it won't be so hard to take care of one more animal.
It seems that your daughter and mine could be good freinds.
