"The Christian family is a communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit. In the procreation and education of children it reflects the Father's work of creation." (CCC2205)

Rescue Horse picture overload!

You've been warned! We've been out to the rescue stable 4 times now -- totally glamorous job, we pick up poo -- and then wheel it down a path to the giant poo pile -- and we brush horses -- HA! But it's fun for the girls and they love to help out with any animals. As we're not doing the SPCA this year - just because we needed to focus more on school work on the mornings -- the USERL became the place we could work in the afternoon, have the same kind of volunteering effort -- and take care of big E's horse loving needs. 

They have a number of horses in the area, apparently if I wanted to drive about as far in another direction there's a stable with 28 horses! But this one has 4 -- which is more than enough poo ... the 4 lovely lasses are horses who were rescued from some sort of sad or mistreated life, although I don't know their stories -- they're all SO sweet though I can't imagine anyone neglecting these horses. 

I thought it would take them a while to trust us, I was so nervous they'd be skittish around the kids -- but -- my loud and boisterous group (who are reminded regularly to stay quiet and not run, but that doesn't mean it's a perfect system) are followed around the pasture by 4 sweet horses who just want another pet, another brush, another kind word. Awww. 

So -- pictures!
