September horses

The weekend after the Jennifer Show, Seth's brother, Jason, his wife Katie and their three kids, Liliana, Ivelyse and Milo traveled to Colorado to celebrate Katie's grandfather's eightieth birthday. Most of their time here was spent with Katie's side of the family, but they did make a quick trip to Aurora to see us and to visit the horses at Kenlyn.
Lilie spent two weeks with us earlier this year, and she couldn't wait to get back to the barn and see all her equine friends.
Happily, Karen had loaned us Thunder for the day. 
Together, the three siblings prepared him for a ride. Ivy brushed the bottom half,
Milo brushed the top...
and Lilie took care of his feet.
Then we headed into the ring to see what Lilie remembered.
It was like she hadn't missed a single day!
After a short ride, she passed the torch to Ivy.
Ivy was a little nervous on the front end...
 but it wasn't long before Thunder won her over.
 Then it was Milo's turn.
Helmet is just a little bit big. 
 Two year olds don't get to ride alone, so he had a lot of chaperones.
So many chaperones! 
James also requested a turn.  
Buxton women. 
Buxton men. 
What a fun family visit!
I always tell Karen that Thunder is a unicorn, and he really earned his horn this day. Thank you, Karen for letting us borrow him!


  1. This post put a smile on my face. Love it. :)

  2. I love it, too! :) You are so lucky to be able to borrow a sweet horse like that. What a Good Boy (with an ironic name, since he does anything BUT thunder along).
