Visiting Bargo Farm

Now don't get me wrong, I love the city and I will always be a city girl at heart. But still, every now and then the city hubbub just gets a little bit too overwhelming and complicated and I need out! My mum and I come out to this beauty once a week, to bask in the quiet and enjoy the company of our horses. 

Ive had Sinbad - apparently camera shy - for the past four and a half years now. He is so amazingly gentle, patient and loving with people and he was also the one that helped me to - excuse the pun - get back in the saddle after having a bad fall. Its nice to partake in the mindless task of grooming him and I love wrapping my arms around his tummy, trying to get my fingers to touch - it never happens. 

David is a newer addition to the little family, and he is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen. He is so small that his back only reaches to about halfway up my thigh!! He has got the sweetest little habit of digging a groove in the ground with his hoof - as you can see above - when you come close to him, as a signal of begin forever hungry, that just about makes me melt. 

"Mr Wonderful" - as he has dubbed himself - looks after the horses and farm during the week and always greets up with a massive breakfast (eggs, hash browns, tomatoes, mushrooms and bacon yum) when we come up !!
