Horse Sale Recap

Last Saturday we made a drive up to
Promontory Point for the Annual Fort Ranch Horse Sale.
Because of construction and a road closure our drive ended
being three hours, but it was well worth it for the kids
to spend some time in the great outdoors with their cousins
getting dirty and sunkissed.
***

We spotted the swans alive and thriving that were brought

down from the house in Idaho.

Tade stayed cool in the shade during the sale with dad

while mom ventured the mountainside with the kids.

Ollie loved exploring.

Landon caught lots of beautiful dragon flies

and then released them unharmed,

okay maybe only one is missing a wing...

Papa Bear sports his hat only for special events like this
where there's wranglers, big belt buckles and manure.

Grandpa gave the boys rides on the mountainside on top

of the Hummer while mom held her breath waiting for

a child to bounce off the hood.

It was all good.

Then the girls had a ride which differed only in their screams.

The kids found a pond that had formed from a fresh spring

coming out of the hillside and caught

tadpoles and minnows in the water.

One of our favorite parts in when the cowboys

release the horses after the sale.

GiDDy-Up!!
