A Day in the Country

Over the weekend we were up in the mountains of Central Puerto Rico. Mountains is a bit of a misnomer considering the highest peak in that area is about 1500 feet, but for us, they're mountains.

One of the best things about going up to our friends house in the mountains is that there's so much space for the dogs to run around. The whole property is fenced so it's safe to let the girls run around and do as they please. They do check in to see what's going on though. Roxy really wanted to have a dip in the pool...

...as did our friends' Westie, Travis.

After a fabulous lunch, we took a walk down to the barn to check on the horses. I especially wanted to see how their Paso Fino yearling was coming along. Since Roxy and Lilly aren't very accustomed to horses, we put them in an extra stall to keep them out of the way of flying hooves. They apparently wanted to see what was going on too!

The yearling, nicknamed 3 Spot, is coming along nicely and is a really nice mover. He was mighty happy to get out and show us what he's made of.

The girls were happy to get out and run around some more after that "horrible punishment" of being left in a stall. "How degrading Mom, we're not horses ya know!"
I think they're looking fairly horse-like here though!

Lilly, as usual, got into a fair bit of mud! She seems to get dirty no matter where she is!

...and then it was back to the house for a cool drink and a siesta!

  4. Wow, looks like a fun day! That's a really pretty horse, too. Your tags say it's a Paso, and I didn't realize there were paint Pasos. I used to have horses and I do miss them...so I just have my "House Horse" great dane pup now :)

    GREAT PHOTOS!! Any objection to me adding you to my list of friends on my blog?

  5. Thanks for visiting Behr Behr! Yes, we would love for you to add us as friends.
    Paso Fino horses are native Puerto Rican horses descending from Spanish Andalusians. They have a very unique lateral gait which is really comfortable. Fun to ride!
    Love the term "House Horse"!!

  6. Looks like a wonderful time! And what a beautiful horse. I've never been around horses.......
