aktung, baby - wir kommen

with family visits it's just like with buses - you wait forever and nothing happens and then all three come along at once...

get a first idea of their mischief by clicking at the picasa albums and as soon as i can write again i will tell you more!

bad horse day


 outch - bad horse day for anette and tutti, but you would somewhat think that "dismount in gallop" needs a slightly higher level of riding skills than these two have and although anette tried hard to stay on the beast for several seconds when tutti clearly signaled that enough was enough which only made it worse as tutti then threw her right into the visitors gallery. 

well - the head is still on but that right arm and shoulder are somewhat perdu - proven because this is typed with the left...

münster to 日本国 in a day

these lovely pics arrived a few weeks ago from our intrepid travellers marlies and anke in the land of the rising sun 

and whereas we quite happily believe that this is a true image of the wold famous cherry blossom time in tokyo

we have the strage feeling that the last two pictures are actually taken in their own beautiful garden

with the proud gardener watching over her gorgeous plants

birthday girl, round two

rike's birthday party was on one of the nicest days so far this year and started with a great cowgirl lunch in our garden where the young ladies entertained themselves with rope pulling and indian cave painting


just a few checks on their knowledge and good horsewomanship

before it's yippiee-i-yeah and back in the saddle again

and even "Old Grizzly Bear" gets the spirit and dresses up for the day!!!
