A Day Out Seeing Some Horses

It makes a change to go out now and again, just to see something different in the world and I got a chance to take my son and daughter out away from the stresses at home to see my dads horses, he has three of them and we went to the stables were they were kept, but they was out in the field running around, I've got to admit, I haven't been around a horse since I was about six years old, but seeing them again, it just brought back memories of me going on a school trip to a farm were there was lots of other animals and such.

Of course I took some photos of the horses up close, as I hope to draw from some of them quite soon, as I have just ordered my new scanner, so maybe I'll create a hubpage or two.

The three horses that was there, they were the most beautiful creatures, the small grey one was called Tia and she was just quite shy of us and would rather just go about eating grass somewhere else in the field or wait until the other two were out of the way, Winstone was the black horse and he was the poor one who gets head butted by Abbey the big brown horse if he gets too near her personal space.

We gave them carrots and a couple of mints which they nearly crunched our hands off with their huge teeth.

Sometimes it's just great to get out sometimes, as I think doing so can do you good, especially when lifes problems get you down, for those who don't know my wife has had a relapse with her mental health, so there has been that to deal with and then me looking after the kids which I enjoy anyway, so that's not really a chore.

And plus everything else that I want to get done here and other places online and offline, it's just nice to kick off the cobwebs and have a break from it all for a few hours.

That sounds like a great time. I totally agree, sometimes you just need to get away and clear your head. It does a world of good.

What a relaxing day this would have been for me…I grew up around horses and riding them was my favorite past time. It is so liberating to ride in the mountains where vehicles cannot traverse. Now, that is serenity in its finest form… Beautiful pictures---thanks for sharing…

Great photos. I know your kids enjoyed it. I have 12 grand kids, they all like the horses. Hope you'll go read my hubs and get a laugh.

Yes I will draw some of them or maybe draw a larger drawing of the brown horse and have a go at colouring it in pencils...

You got some great photos! It sounds like you all had a wonderful day. Going to try drawing from some of these great references? I can see the camera did a few distortions but you've got some great full-body shots there and wonderful faces. If they were mine I'd be drawing them.

Of course the last time I went out to the farrier school with Kitten I did the same thing. Intended to sketch but instead snapped phone photos. Next time I will sketch again though. One time I did a watercolor monochrome sketch of Brownie the pony that came out strikingly well because Brownie was a sweetheart and stood still for me.
