We had the 4-H club in our community, too. For those that don't know, that is a club where you raise farm animals, create crafts or etc that are entered in completions at the County Fairs. I raise a lamb and boy was he a handful. After months of training him, he did great at the fair and we won a ribbon. What a cool experience this was.
I was around lots of farm animals but horses were my favorite. My family housed a horse for a friend when I was young and later I got a pony. As a little kid, I remember being so afraid to ride one but over the years, I learned to love it.
So, fast forward a few decades and we saw a horse riding place near one of my favorite malls. For a few years, I have wanted to stop by and recently we finally did. It was like a ghost town and hardly anyone was around. So we just looked around.
Then last weekend, we stopped by again. They had a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids and we enjoyed driving through and seeing all the live stock. One thing I forgot about was the strong smell. LOL! When I got out and walked around, that smell was saying hello to my nose! LOL!
But overall it was fun to go down memory lane there. I am not sure I want to ride at this place but it was fun just being there.
Here are some pics from our adventure!

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
