Part of our time in Oregon was spent staying on a ranch in the central part of the state. The ranch was right out of a "wild west" story book, with picture perfect views in every direction (horse posing included). Carys is two, and I thought she was too young to get excited about horses...not so! She could not get enough of them and called them all ponies!

Every time she saw them she would shout, "Ponieeeeeeeees!".

While she was too young to go riding, we went to the stables to watch the horses come in from the fields for breakfast, water and social time.

It had been a while since I had been so close to horses, the earthy smell took me right back to being 12 years old at horse back riding camp. What amazing animals they are, just being near them made me feel more in the moment, more awake, and more connected to the earth beneath my feet.

And now we are fully into another little girl obsession....Ponytails! Seriously, she wants to wear them everyday. Loving that!
