E is for Equine Extra=curricular Excuse - Redux!

Today's letter E is for Equine Extra=curricula Excuse - as in -  I couldn't do a fancy post today because I left here at 8 am and did not return unti 4 pm.  Where was I?  In a field, in a paddock, in a stall, in a barn, in the shade, in over my head, in-sane!

We have a mini equine camp going for the next two days at Untamed Spirit.  The kids were great!  They rode horses, they groomed horses, they bathed horses, they fed horses, they cleaned stalls, they learned to wrap legs.  They learned about the 'sign language of horse ears!  They learned about the frog on the horses hoof and how to pick, and clean the hooves.  Then, they rode some more, and had lunch and arts and crafts and a little more riding and finally finished for the day.

The weather was beautiful, breezy, in the 70's.  Everyone had a wonderful day.

Tomorrow we get to do it all over again!

So, E is for excuse and an excellent one at that!

I just realized - I did Equine Excuse last round!!! Oh no.  I am repeating myself!!!


  1. What a great thing you are doing! Bless you!

  2. sounds a fun day hpe weather is kind to you

  3. Equines are noble creatures who continually take care of us when we can't figure out what day of the week it is.

    I went on a trail ride yesterday and had a blast. It was a picture perfect day.

    You are very special to be working with children and equines. Somehow, they're a match made in heaven.

  4. I bet the kids really enjoy exploring all the exciting things around there...

    I think that is an exceptional excuse...

    Excellent post from an extraordinary person!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "E".
