A Horse and his "boy"

You may recall the blog from a few months ago when my farming husband decided to ride our 3 Year old Arabian

Now, JC had 60 days of intense training and then some trail time after that prior
to our purchase of him, but we weren't sure what to expect with him undersaddle.

However, the two have went out on trails, down our road, through the river and encountered four-wheelers, cars and rode with my son and his pony with no issues.
JC has proved a calm trail horse, even compared with our 6 year old QH mare with many more time undersaddle.

Yesterday, farming husband jumped on him out of the blue just to see how well he can
ride with him bareback. It was really very touching and beautiful, but please do not tell John that, he would gag :)



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
