Wanna ride my wild stallion?


My friend just got back from a trip to Egypt with her husband and she sent me this photo. While there she met a local man who raises Arabs and he asked her if she wanted to pop on one of his stallions! Ummm yeah! She was wearing flip flops and had no helmet but could not resist (which is very very naughty of her because she was with me when I had the fall that gave me a concussion). She said as they were taking the horse from the stable he was pawing everywhere and looked wild.

If you notice the horse is wearing a necklace with bells and a velvet saddle. She resisted buying a velvet saddle but bought a necklace for her horse :)

She is coming with me to Kentucky so we are wild with excitement. Yeahhhhh I can't wait...we are going to see and do as much as we can...I love road trips!!!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post again...I came down with another flu virus and it really wiped me out. I hope I am 100% healthy now and stay that way for a long time. I have been running myself ragged...so am slowing down a bit and hope the lovely spring sunshine melts away my winter blahs.

THAT was an amazing picture!!! can you just imagine??? I have never done much in the way of travel (not one that likes to fly!!!) but I would consider an airplane ride for a ride like that one!!!

That truly is an amazing picture. The horse looks like he's about to explode and race across that open desert.

I just can't even imagine being in that situation. That stallion looks calm to me with that cocked back let, just looking off into the distance. This will be a story that never gets forgotten. Talk about unbelievable.

Amazing adventure....wow! I have a necklace for Maddys with bells...supposedly, horses like the sound and helps them keep gait better....I just thought it was pretty:-) So cool...what a dream vacation.
