Second challenge Bird is the Word

Yesterday was the day for the second challenge at Bird is the word blog.
We've had so many wonderful reactions to our first challange and so many have been playing along. Thank you so much for that ladies!

The second word of this month is


I chose a photo of Mara on horseback after a jumping competition. When ever she sees a horse she starts to shine. That is eversince she was a little girl. I remember we were at the farm at my aunts' and Mara met the Shetland pony "Foefie". I believe she was only 1 year old and didn't talk much words yet except for mum and dad. "Paard" (horse) she said when she saw Foefie and she was fascinated about horses. She rides for over 2 years now and eventhough she fell off a pony last week, she's looking forward to go to the stables again this week.Funny detail is that I learned to ride on Foefie and the pony is still alive, turning 41 this year!
