How adorable is he?!
We also visited the rest of her Belgians outside in the paddocks.
Just before our barbeque dinner, we were able to get a wagon ride from two of her Belgians trained to pull it. It was such a neat experience, but a little nerve-wracking as well. It was strange not being able to control the horses from our comfort zone on top of their backs. Although, they were both very well behaved and we certainly had nothing to worry about!
When we got back, the barbeque potluck began! I helped myself to lots of veggies and dip, some maccaroni salad and a delicious asparagus salad.
For round two, I grabbed some mango salad and a pesto pasta salad. I also took one veggie burger and topped it with ketchup, mustard and some homemade relish. I left the top of the veggie burger bun off and ate my burger open-faced (as usual); however, I ended up being too full to finish the burger after all of that food. I ended up eating half of it, then called it quits.
A little while later, we dug in to the dessert table! I helped myself to half of a red velvet cupcake, an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, and later some cinnamon brown sugar pita chips.
We spent the rest of the night telling stories and watching her two dogs play with all of the little kittens running around. We had a lot of good laughs!
It was a great night and I'm so lucky to be able to teach with such incredible instructors. I can't wait to return to teaching with them all once the summer had ended. As for now, I'm just going to enjoy my temporary reduction in instructing responsibilities. Hooray for summer!
