We are SO excited to have our newest addition to our big farm family—TWO horses!! We bought our first horses as a family (Mark has owned a horse before—I haven’t, but it’s always been my dream!), brought them home, let them acclimate themselves to their new pasture and each other, and then we saddled them up and rode them for the first time. I was so unbelievably exciting for us and the girls (the boys were less impressed... maybe if it was a video game ? about horses they would’ve enjoyed it more ?) Come along with us and say hi ?? to Roper & Queen!#bringingahorsehome #myfirsthorse #farmfamilyThanks for watching!?
