Two days at Uncle Brian's Ranch
We were very lucky to be able to collect our step grandson for a two day outing to his uncle's place. We piled into two cars and drove for over two hours to reach this wonderland.
Mommy and Ivy pile out of the car.
We gather indoors for chatter...
Several pieces of artwork were painted by DSIL. Here's his favorite, three bison painted on the skull.
I also enjoyed the dining table made by Brian:
Later the big excitement for Skyler was to ride behind the snowmobile with his cousin Billy-Jean.
Indy dog loved the out of doors and the exercise. She ran about 10km with the other dogs, chasing the snowmobile. Here she is with Oscar the barn cat. (I think Oscar is a very spoiled barn cat...)
While the kids were entertained, adults went walking.
DSIL (in his Peruvian hat) with Ivy.
Big excitement for me was to see the horses. Here we see the newest foal, born on May 31st. His mother broke her leg in two places three weeks later, no one knows how. She had to be destroyed. Little guy is doing very well.
Here are some of the others:
And then the others hear it is time for breakfast, so here they come!
We enjoy watching them eat.
After, Brian teaches Skyler a trick. This horse is Isabella.
Everyone is watching!
Well DD just has to try too!
Skyler watches her closely.
Up she goes!
Indoors again, there's nothing but food! Goodness me.... Skyler enjoys music with his grandfather and uncle.
I walk the line...Johnny Cash-

Lots of remote toys, a beautiful helicopter like a hummingbird, and this truck:
Needless to say, it was a wonderful visit for all!
