Meet Little Black Mare.
And Chocolate Gelding.
Not the most original of names but we aren't known for our ability to name pets anyway!
We are considering these two as replacements for Juliet, the kids' horse that we lost a few weeks ago.
We have been riding a lot the past week trying to find the best addition to our horse family. I think we have a winner, but we have not made a final decision yet. Both are sweet horses. Both have good and bad points. We shall see.
Grace and grant love the little black one and have already named her The Black Stallion after the beloved horse in the series by the same name.....this while totally missing the facts that the horse is neither big nor a stallion....nor was it EVER a stallion seeing as how it is a girl. Oh well. I'm sure the lucky horse will recieve a name worthy of our long standing history of bad pet names.
In other news Grace's musical composition was awarded first place at the district level in the PTA Reflections competition. Last night was an awards program at school for winners at her school. Next week we will attend an awards program for district winners. District winners now move on to the state level of competition before going to national competition in the spring. Grace's ten year old mind has enthusiastically made the leap right over state level to nationals. I wonder. Could she possibly do it? The saga continues.
