I've wanted a horse since I was a little girl. So after a few years not riding regularly I've decided to get back into my life-long love, full swing! After only a few months of horse shopping I found my cute mare Dani in 2012. Then in 2015 we moved from CO to NC and bought horse property. We now also have Chance a sweet Arabian gelding.
This is the story of my continuing adventure in the world of horses in my backyard.
It's amazing to me that horses have done so much for us! I recently saw War Horse and was awed. I've been on horses that shy at a bird singing and yet war horses had to deal with fires being shot and explosions!
Fire horses are no different. Not only did they deal with a siren but they dealt with the noise and chaos of a building on fire.
My local fire operations center, I go there often because of my job, has a museum with old fire engines and then these set up with model horses pullin scale fire engines etc.
There were also many photos of the actual fire horses. How regal they are!
Of course the fire hydrants were kinda cute, I had to take a picture of the different types and kinds.
So this was a short post, I just wanted to get the pictures of the old fire engines and the brave horses up for everyone to see. Does anyone see a dalmation dog in these pics? I know they were an importatn member of the fire team since they worked to keep the horses calm.
