The Picture of Beauty

My Saturday mornings spent at Nixon Hills Arabians in Marlborough continues to be a much-anticipated point during my week! I arrive at 8am, feed, water and turnout the horses, and then I clean stalls or exercise horses, whatever it is that Judy, the owner needs any extra help with.

A few weekends ago I was able to bring my niece to the barn and show her around. Here she is grooming Alvin, a champion Arabian.

We were able to saddle up Battle--one of my favorite horses at the barn, for her to ride. What a beauty!

I know my posts have ben short--we have been busy busy as usual!
