There’s a gorgeous new horse at the barn. We don’t know much about him, but he sure is a sweet, kind-hearted guy. From what we can gather, he’s about 8-9 years old and a Quarter Horse (NOT a Thoroughbred!), but that’s about it. We have no clue what his registered name is or what his racing history is as we cannot figure out what his tattoo that all racing horses have, is. Hours have been spent trying to figure it out to no avail. He has been named Parker. You will also notice that he is a GREY horse and not a BAY (brown with a black mane and tail), like most of the horses that get taken in are. 😉 This boy isn’t up for adoption yet, so he will be here for a little while longer. For some that are up for adoption, check out Equine Racers, which is the 501C3 Registered Non Profit Horse Rescue Organization I help out at with my friend Sarah who runs it, and that most of these horses I post about are from. I hope you enjoy this mysterious beast as much as I have so far! 🙂
Relaxation and Good Times out on the Colorado River
Labor Day is just right around the corner. Where has the summer gone? It always goes by way too fast! One place that I love to spend labor day weekend at is out at the river. Just about a 4-4/1/2 hour drive depending on traffic and if you stop to grab a bite to eat and take a bathroom break or not. Whether you stay in Parker,Havasu, or just somewhere along the river, it’s always a good time. I have been spending my days at this wonderful place for as long as I can remember.
A beautiful view awaits right outside the front door. Ready to go out for a float?
During the warm summer months, the river is a great place to cool off at with friends and family! It can get pretty busy though, look at all the boats!
If you’re hungry, one of my favorite places to dine at while at the river is at El Sarape in Parker, AZ. Here is the carne asada plate! It’s so good!
A river trip isn’t complete without some cool drinks! Cheers! A boat ride is also customary, there are some fun floating bars and restaurants you can drive right up to and dock your boat at! Shown here on the right is the Roadrunner! It’s fun to go there at night for some drinks, dancing and just hanging out. It’s also a good place to grab some breakfast at!
