An evening at Blessings Farm

As of a few weeks ago we were told about a horse farm about 15-20 minutes away from us. After checking it out and finding that they were a non-profit ministry to underprivileged children that needed lots of help, we decided to volunteer on Monday nights. We were thrilled!

Last night we picked up our friend, Jane, and headed to the barn. The pasture was extremely muddy. Going to get the horses was no easy chore, especially since you sink at least six inches into the icky muck with each step you take! (One of the kids lost their boot!)

Volunteering at the barn usually involves picking a student to work with and helping them groom, tack, etc. Last night was a good night - we were groomed and saddled right on time. During lesson time, Leroy and Caleb got the feed ready while Amelia and mom observed and helped out.

After feeding and letting them back out into the pasture we found out we got done five minutes early. It was a great night, and a beautiful ride home going through the country roads. We were able to see a gorgeous full moon just as we were coming home. We will post some pictures probably next week.
