Thought i'd dig up some old posts for throwback thursday for the next few weeks. I'm just going to take a look and see what moves me.
Today i'm missing this... You can see the original post PICTURE OF THE WEEK HERE
Normally we would be getting all excited right about this time of the year because it would almost be time for horse camp. My girls waited for all of their preschool years to be old enought to attend Project Noah horse camp. And once they were old enough they attended every summer, for 4 weeks, for the next 8 years... Niguel worked the last two summers as an assistant leader and Kylah would have done the same this year.
This camp was amazing for my girls where they could be with every kind of farm animal known to man all day long, in beautiful O'neil park, and ride horses, and get filthy dirty, and cry when it was all over each year. I should mention that the large majority of horse at the camp were rescued from some kind of abusive situation. Many were VERY VERY old, with special needs and special diets. The kids loved on them and they loved the kids.
Unfortunately, the camp was disbanded after last year. It was an emotional summer, 2 of the horses had to be put down. The other horses were rehomed after camp.
And this year we are left with a BIG hole in our ususal summer plans... NO HORSE CAMP. Boo!
This was our favorite horse... DW. He was a playful little guy.
If you didn't click over here's what I said about the photo in my original post... "Two peas in a pod here... Kylah and DW... mischievous, full of personality, love nibbles, playful, and a bit on the not mature side."
*sigh* And so we are left with our memories... many of them!
