A weekend in the country

Well, okay, we live in the country all the time, but this weekend we went home to the farm where we were born with Mommy.
On Friday, Mommy left us home on the farm and went to help her friends show horses at the Saratoga County Fair. She saw this competition of six-horse hitches of draft horses.



These guys were the winners. They came all the way from Quebec to compete.

This is Ox Kill Spectacular. She is owned by Mommy's friends. She got a ribbon in her class.
This morning before we came home, we went for a nice walk. First we said hello to the horses on our way out.
It was a beautiful day.


We headed off down the road.

We saw a field full of sheep.

These guys are pretty big.
Lots of the farms were cutting hay.

Mommy thought we looked good in front of this old farm. She used to live here and pick berries in these fields.
We are having a rest before walking home.
When we were almost back to the house, Mommy let us off leash. Daisy loves to run, run, runnnn!!!!
Back at the farm, sitting on the door step, we are pooped.
We had so much fun, we are going back this weekend for a big party and doggie family reunion. Can't wait.

You sound like you are having a wonderful time. Running FREE in the fields is the absolute best and especially in that beautiful place that your mom used to live.
Enjoy the rest of the time there.

What a wonderful weekend adventure for you two. Our momma was raised in a big city so we really don't want to go there. We like the little town we live in now because it isn't so noisy.
