We gathered at Rush Acres. The kids got to tour the horse corrals (including a very pregnant mare) and then we headed across the street to a pasture full of horses. Once past the electric fence...we had a ball! The owners had to go to a wedding in a couple hours, so the time was limited. But the kids got to pet, feed, and even sit on a horse for photo opportunity.
Once we cleared the pasture, the owner used a whip to crack (never even coming close to the horses) which caused them to run from corner to corner of the pasture. Watching the horses run was J-Bear's favorite part. They were beautiful.
The owners invited us back and they will get out the carriage and let one of the horses give the kids carriage rides. We are looking forward to the second visit!

|This horse had a little spunk to him.|
They said it was due to people always giving
him treats. J-Bear gave him a wide birth!
|One that's more her size!|

Note: CJ has hot red cowboy boots. The girl
is into horses!
