New horses

     On Wednesday last week, we drove to Morgantown, Kentucky, to pick up our new horses.  We bought them from a family who rescues horses.  Because they want them to go to good homes they give a money back guarantee if you don't like them.

This one is mine.  His name is Texas.

The darker one is named Lady.  Both are Tennessee Walking horses which are gaited horses with a very fast walk.

We are excited to try them out on trails but are helping them get acclimated to their new environment first.  I rode Texas Sunday in the pasture.  He did pretty well considering I don't really know how to ride him.  I have always ridden Western.  The people who sold him to us said there is a difference in cues so I may have to take some lessons if I can't figure it out myself.

They both are very quiet, friendly horses so we are hoping anyone, including guests staying with us, will be able to ride them.
