Ellie Meets Some Horses

I try to take Ellie (and now Liam too) once or twice a year to visit my two sisters and my brother-in-law that all live in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex (DFW). Our latest visit a few weeks ago was full of noteworthy stuff (a stomach virus! Ellie meeting horses! Liam meeting his grandparents and great grandmother!). I decided to post about our trip a little at a time so that there's not an overload of information. If you get sick of reading about our trip to DFW, don't worry...our trip to Louisiana to visit E's family is coming up after this!

While we were visiting, my sister Jodi bought a gorgeous palomino mare named Summer. Jodi kept the pretty little mare for a few nights at her friend Maddie's horse facility until she could transport Summer to West Texas. Ellie was so excited that Jodi let us tag along to check on her new pony.

We stopped by the barn to say hello to Maddie's yearling Flynn and talk to the woman who was in charge of feeding the horses that week. Flynn was sweet for such a young guy. Ellie still talks about him and his toy apple!
 Next we marched on over to see Jodi's horse Summer. Ellie wasn't certain about Summer at first, but Jodi reassured her by showing her Summer's mane and letting Ellie pet Summer.
 Our last stop was the pasture on our way off the property. Maddie's little miniature horses were rather adorable and much more Ellie's size! She didn't seem nearly as intimidated by them as she was the larger horses.
Thanks for the fun time, Jodi! Ellie still talks about meeting the horses almost every day. She'll be begging to go again next time we head your way for a visit!
