I discovered something new to me. I should not be surprised as most little girls love them, but my girls LOVE and I mean puffy heart love horses.
A few weekends ago Julie suggested we take the girls on a picnic to a park we had not been to in years. Ballast Point Park is in South (way South!) Tampa. It is near where we used to live, near the airforce base.
Across the street from the park is a horse stable. After we ate, I suggested we go over and ask if we could walk around and pet the horses.
I grew up around horses. My mom always had horses, so I feel quite at home at the stable. I love everything about horse stables...even the smell. It smells like leather, hay and oats.
Well, the girls had a fantastic time, and it was not easy getting them to leave.
These "dancing" pictures were taken right before we walked over to the horse stables.
While we were there I saw a young girl washing off her sweaty horse after her ride. I asked her if it would be ok for me to take her picture. I just love the back-lighting on these.
