It’s been a full week.

Preparations are ramping up for our wedding which is next weekend, so time with Bear has been, sadly, sporadic at best. In fact, I haven’t ridden at all this week and won’t, now, until after the wedding is over.

This means, of course, he will get to enjoy a bit of a vacation too.

On Wednesday,ย between hair colouring and a dress fitting,ย I managed to squeeze in a visit to the barn. Because the farrier was doing feet (including Bear’s which were in real need of attention) and this tends to monopolize the small barn where Bear lives, our time was limited to a few minutes of hand grazing.

Yesterday, however, and to my delight, I had plenty of time to devote to grooming and playing with my beautiful boy.

We had so much fun!

He loves a free-run in the arena and to wallow in my company (and I his, of course). This makes my heart glad and releases any stress I’m holding and, as we get closer to the big day, this is really important.

These images were captured with my iPhone while we were hanging out in the arena. Please enjoy them for the next couple of weeks. I doubt I’ll be posting again until the beginning of June.

Nurture what you love …

    • Thank, Lissa. While I tend to limit the use of my iPhone at the barn because of the distraction, I have no problem taking it into the arena for our fun time. He loves to ham it up … ๐Ÿ˜‰ … Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. … Dorothy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Simply beautiful and I wish Bear could attend the Wedding. Will you take any formal pictures with him. I have a wonderful mental image of you sitting on him like a princess in your Wedding gown. Congratulations to you both!

    I also did not know that the one that clips the feet is called a farrier : )

    • I thought of having Bear brought to the venue (I could do that since it’s an equestrian property), but that would give me one more thing to think about on the day and would, ultimately be a stress for him. … I might have candid pics taken with him at home, with me in my dress, but not on him. Too big a dress; too big a stress. ;-). … As for the farrier — this is the label given to a blacksmith who specializes in care of horse’s feet. Bear’s farrier is very good — he’s been practicing for 40 years and has an intricate knowledge of his trade. You know the term “No foot, no horse”? It is safe to say “Bad farrier, bad feet …” Bear’s fortunate to have the attentions of a highly skilled horse foot fellow … ๐Ÿ˜‰ … Thanks for stopping by.
