Horse Power


Kristen went gallivanting off on a magical adventure a few weeks ago.  The magician who was to whisk her off on such an adventure contacted me and asked if I would watch and care for the horses while Kristen was away.  Since it was her birthday....... I said that of course I would.

Off to the barn I trotted with several Natives in tow.  I'm not sure who Levi is talking to or what about and the camera that was supposed to be carefully carried to take photos of newborn kittens.......... apparently was being used by a traitorous Native.

It would appear that we are all headed to say hello to the horses as they wait oh so not patiently for their night time feeding but look closely at the littlest Native.  Another horse of a different color has caught his eye........


He sees the tires and is in awe at how big they are.  Imagine standing next to a tire that is almost as tall as you are!


He can't contain himself.........  He must climb on and see life from a different vantage.  Newborn kittens are but a memory.  Who cares about newborn kittens when there is a tractor full of horse power to ride on???


It turns out the newborn kittens didn't like being noticed earlier in the day and mama kitty moved them else where.  Other Natives were bummed but not this one!  He spent the whole time I was feeding sitting on this tractor with a huge grin on his yes, I'm wearing jammies in the middle of the day face!

Maybe Auntie Kristen will take him for a ride someday................

  1. Oh, I love seeing Kristen's place from your and the Native's perspective! The littlest Native's beaming face is contagious - I'm beaming clear across the border :-) And who WOULDN'T be smiling when they get to wear pajamas all day? It's my favourite daytime attire. Mixing pyjamas with tractors? A perfect day.
    (Wow, Spellcheck really frowns upon my British English spelling of favourite and pyjamas.)

    1. The second the child gets home from school, he puts on his "pyjamas" :) and his 'favourite' day of school is pyjama day.

  3. What a good friend you are! Horsekeeping is a big job! But made manageable when you love the horses and the owner of the horses!

  6. My boys loved Kristin's tractor, your little one's smile is contagious and YES my boys spend most of their days out in their pajamas, as do I these days - they are the most comfortable attire.

    1. I think once a week should be a holiday called, "pajama day". That way we don't have to feel guilty like I did this morning when there was a knock at my door several hours after I should have been dressed for the day but was still in my jammies.

    2. I change into mine the second I finish the evening feed for the horses. I am determined NEVER to go outside into the summer after this afternoon - too hot even for pajamas and it's barely June!

  7. I'd love a ride on Kristen's tractor too - looks like such fun.

    Toby lives in his PJs, come to think of it so do I!

    1. What? Monkeys on your tractor? I don't see anyone messing with your tractor! These are not the droids you're looking for......... (as I wave my hand in front of your face).
