So last week we got a great deal on 5 more stacks of cages, I moved all my tack back to the house and now we have 50ish holes. I have some I can divide or not depending on if I want a larger cage or smaller. I have room for 3 more stacks if we remove the chicken nest boxes. Haven't decided if we will or not.

Also last week Jocelyn and I did get Richie and Rayne over to the indoor arena for a lovely ride. Such awesome ponies they are.

And our last VL doe to kindle this year (she's only 8 months old) she had 6! Has been prepping for over 2 weeks, such a sweet doe, her name is Whitey. They are the "count down" litter being born 4-3-21
I guess I should revive my bunny thread. Just is easier to have one at this time.

And we got out on the trails!! it was almost too warm. But oh well. Horses behaved and all 3 kids wanted to go! Worked a bit on stopping and standing, Mr Richie isn't too into that. He does great in the arena but not on the trails. He's not terrible but I'd really love if he was better. Rode 3.8miles, in about 2 hours, with one short break. My friend has an "app"

Wonderful pictures! Great that you got out on the trails with all the kids. DH loved riding with all the kids mounted on their own ponies. He would have the youngest up with him and he loved riding along with everyone seeing the entire family out on our horses. Some of our happiest memories.

One time we stayed out too long and the sun went down before we got home. We were stranded on some steep trails that led through low trees with branches across the trail. The moon was not up for another couple of hours and it was pitch black. The kids were getting frightened not being able to see where we were going, but we told them to lean forward over their ponies' necks, hold on tight and give the horses their heads. The horses would take us home. I went first with my arm in the air to feel for branches so I could call out to warn the riders behind. DH brought up the rear so no one could get left behind. Our horses had ridden those trails for years and brought us safely down the hills through the trees and onto the road. It was still pitch black when we hit the road since there are no street lights, so DH and I put the kids between us nose to tail since our horses were pintos and we hoped the white would show up. We only had a short distance on the street until we hit the road to our house and were off the main road. An adventure the kids still remember!

Those trail rides with all the kids will be magical memories. :love
