My "Pioneer Woman" Day

Today my friend Laila asked me if I wanted to come out and spend time with her family. Her uncle had given her a filly so she was coming to pick her up.

We started out at her Uncle's house for a BBQ lunch. After lunch we all headed out to the farm but not before grabbing a bag of M & M's. Melts in your mouth and not in your hands.


We got to the farm and had to go out into the field to look for the horses. Robert and his wife went out on the four wheeler to gather the horses.




I was riding in the back of the truck taking pictures feeling like I was Pioneer Woman. If you have never read her blog, I highly advise it!




We had to get the horses to the front of the field to the corral so we could get them separated. This was not an easy task.




Aren't the beautiful?



They are finally in one part of the gate, hurry Rusty and Laila, get the gate closed!



Rusty is thinking, yes, I am cowboy, hear me roar.




Did you notice the black spot under his chin, it's a large mosquito.





Got the horses to the corral, now try to get this wild filly into the trailer. Robert and Jane are doing a great job!




Laila was in charge of getting the door closed once the filly got in the trailer. She was cheezin knowing this filly was hers!





Poor horse was scared to death.



They finally got her loaded, she wasn't happy about it at all! She wanted to be back in the pasture with her friends and not in this crazy trailer.



It's finally over and we had a great boss giving instructions.




Thanks friends for letting me come out and be a part of your day, I had great time!
