Weekend Recap

I have grown up in a barn or around horses my ENTIRE life. From just about as far back as I can remember, there was some sort of horse in my life at every point. I am a girl who can go out to a barn all day, get sneezed on, nibbled at, attacked by flies, smelling like a horse and be 110% satisfied.
Attractive right?
Yesterday, Sean and I went to a barn I used to regularly go to. Having him with me when I go makes him want just as much land as I do so we can get a horse and relax in the country.
( I FINALLY got him to agree with how perfect the country life would be! )
 This little guy, Owen, is a one year old stud that absolutely STOLE my heart. He just loved Sean and followed us everywhere we walked. I claimed him to be my barn horse until I can purchase him one of these days ;) He is a Tennessee Walking horse which means he is going to be huge and with his sweet personality, he would be the perfect horse.
(Please excuse the horrible IPhone photos)
Since I no longer have a horse, I have serious horse fever. Thankfully my parent's neighbor practically raised me at a barn and lets me come anytime I want. Yesterday she told me the good news of an open arena we have around town!
Until one day when I get my perfect horse ( or two)...
...I will happily be going to the barn to be with that precious Owen.
This post has literally no point I know, but I am still on a happy streak from being out there yesterday. I just love all those precious babies and I love the fact that Sean is all for one some day.
He sure knows the way to a ladies heart :)


  1. I loved the pics! :) I want to live in the country too! I grew up in the country and I miss it sooooo bad sometimes. :)

  2. How fun to see your passion and interests come out in this post!
    Thanks for sharing Lauren!
    I didn't know you were such a country girl!

  3. My step mom has two horses. I love the photo of the horse rolling in the dirt! Too cute!

  4. this is so great! I would be classified as a city girl (I suppose) but will be moving to the country in the next couple of months after I marry my country boy. He has a horse and we eventually will buy property to own more and.... i have no idea what i'm getting myself into BUT I'M SUPER EXITED ABOUT IT! :) I need as much help as I can get. Your country girl wisdom is much appreciated! haha
