A Sunday Drive

Hello dear readers, today my daughter Sharen is helping me with this blog post. Yesterday, my family and I took a trip to my Uncle Russel’s house in Lake City Florida, to bring his pontoon boat back home. While we were there, we took a walk around the yard, and sat inside the house for a few minutes while my dad and my uncle changed the tire on the boat trailer.
Now, my uncle has five dogs, two horses, and a donkey, as pets. The donkey was brown with large eyes, but my daughter says that the horses’ eyes were bigger than those of the donkey. Both horses were quarter horses, and they were taller than sharen and me. Angela came up to me and lowered her head so I could pet her. She has a long nose, and I suspect that she waited for me to feed her a carrot. If anyone has ever actually fed a horse some carrots, apples, or sugar cubes, please share your experiences. I’ve read about this, but I haven’t experienced it for myself, and I would like to know what this is like. Although I’ve never fed a horse anything other than hay, I have ridden horseback before. I regret to say that I haven’t ridden horseback in ten years, so I would be so sore if I did it now. Although I didn’t get to ride the horses, just getting to pet them and getting to see them was a wonderful experience.
I won’t go into the drive itself, because it was like any other road trip, where I listen to an audio book and my daughter plays her games or takes a nap, as we ride in the rain. Now that we’ve given you a glimpse of my family trip, please share a Sunday drive, or road trip you’ve taken with your family.
I hope you all had a great Independence Day, and may you have a wonderful week. Until next time, this is Ann and Sharen saying Happy trails.
