Riding Ponies With AFP.....

Tonight's post, with pictures of Miss Amanda Palmer (AKA AFP) on her Pony, is entirely due to the courtesy of Miss Palmer in letting me post them, and Mr Cassidy who took them and is letting me post them, and Horsetrainer Mel, who provided the Pony, Glorious. Riding with Amanda was really lovely, and more fun than you can possibly know. (I adore that women!) I loved it that they all came out to the farm with me, and that she got a chance to ride one of the loveliest Arab geldings going.

It was easy to see that she really loves horses, and I believe all concerned had a wonderful time.

My Boss would like me to add that AFP is the best houseguest ever, and that she is welcome to return any time she likes.

I hope she will....Soon.

(Edited to add in response to Twitter Queries: The horses are at a farm some distance from our home, no riding over. I lease a horse there, from Horsetrainer Mel, and she was kind enough to lend another of her horses to AFP)

Love, Ponies, and AFP,

She is lovely.

I think you are lovelier.

At 21:04 Blogger Beez said...

I can only think of one word


What a great day.

At 21:06 Blogger thelittlefluffycat said...

I think she *and* the pony look blissful. :)

At 21:08 Anonymous Kate said...

It was a beautiful weekend. Picture perfect days Saturday and Sunday, and you all look like you are having such a wonderful time outside and enjoying each other and the spectacular ponies.

I agree with Siri on the lovely aspect, though.

More days like that please. Happiness is catching...

At 21:15 Blogger Cecily said...

It's hard not to be envious of such a beautiful weekend, but I think I can just to joyous at the gloriousness of it all.

/adjective vomit.

At 21:15 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Here's to many more days like the last week, it WAS a wonderful time!

Bliss was the word of the day, and welcome Fluffycat!

At 21:23 Blogger One Sock Short said...

I'm glad you had such a wonderful time. Are there any more pictures of you riding (i.e., not in the background)? I'm with Siri.

At 21:26 Blogger Jess said...

Wonderful! You all look like you're riding around in a Durand painting. :)

Hi, Fluffycat!

At 21:27 Blogger vampi said...

the joy ad bliss in those pictures really comes through. lovely just doesn't seem to be adequate.

At 21:30 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I wanted this post to be about Amanda and her joy that day, more of me and horses soon. This is not a Who's the prettiest contest! She is my friend and fast becoming one of my best friends, and between such, there is none of that.

Let's face it, we're both HOT!

At 21:31 Blogger Chantrelle said...

Love them! What dolls!!!!

At 21:34 Blogger Beez said...

You are both Hawtness Personified, and she has the kind of grin that just makes you have to grin along.

At 21:34 Blogger vampi said...

hot!, yes this!

At 21:36 Blogger AletaMay said...

Love these photos!

Thanks AFP and Kyle and Mel for letting Fablo share them.

I love the second photo. It looks like Q and AFP and the two horses are one huge amazing mythical creature.

At 21:37 Blogger vampi said...

actually, i kid of like how in the second picture, you both look connected.

but my fav pic is the one with the horse head in focus, and you can see afp in the background.

At 21:51 Blogger AsISeeIt said...

oddly i just downloaded the album from itunes...

At 21:52 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Very cool...I'm suddenly very aware of this horse shaped hole in my life...alas...

OK...back to the writing thing...

At 21:59 Blogger Lexocat said...

The whole thing looks as though it was the most fun ever. Ever!

Back to Kindergarten madness for me.

At 22:27 Blogger Dragonsally said...

How could photos of horses, Ms Fabulous and AFP not be glorious? Quiche - you're outside on the horse. I feel like lots of exclamation marks are needed, you both look so happy and the day looks lovely.

At 22:29 Blogger Fluffy said...

Coolest Weekend Evar. Making great friends is the best. Well, so is getting a really great photo of yourself. The universe can hold more than one best thing, I think.

I had a good one, too. Got lots of gardening done and a little sunburn on the shoulders. No horses were involved.

I haz a big day tomorrow, so should sign off and go to bed.

And I'd like to point out that the fiendish fluffy ranks are growing... ahahaha

At 22:42 Blogger Ceels said...

What a handsome pony. I've missed riding since I moved to the city. Thank you for the pictures.

At 23:13 Blogger Na said...

looks like bliss.
sounds like bliss.
must be this.

At 23:15 Anonymous Anonymous said...

you didn't mention how i fought off the rustlers!

and how i was almost eaten by horses.

At 23:30 Blogger Beez said...

ahem. There are thing in the garden that you should just never eat...smoke....no, eat.

At 23:34 Blogger Ticia said...

Mr. Cassidy - That's the price you have to pay for art. (grin)

Loving the photos this week. Such happy happy faces.

At 23:38 Blogger AletaMay said...

Well Kyle, I guess YOU will have to tell those stories yourself!

It would have been tragic and really weird if you had been eaten by horses while traveling the midwest photographing writers where they write.

Night Fiends.

At 00:18 Blogger ariandalen said...

AFP looks like she is having the time of her life! Thanks to all involved for sharing the pictures. :)

Hi, littlefluffycat! Grab a nice white jacket and stuff to personalize it. ;)



At 00:23 Blogger spacedlaw said...

That last picture is unique! Great shot of her (and the horse) that made me laugh and a laugh early in the morning is a good thing.

In other news, I got an email from LuLu.com telling me that they had put my first NaNoWriMo story, which I had published with them on Amazon.com (despite the lack of ISDN number! Shock!). I checked and indeed, !
Mind you it's only ONE copy (I suppose they are trying to see if there are takers).
I think I should get a screen shot of that amazon page.

At 00:25 Blogger spacedlaw said...

I'd meant to give you guys the address so you could come and marvel at the sight but something went wonky in the HTML, obviously.
Apparently, laughing does not equal being quite awake yet...
So. It's THERE

At 00:31 Blogger Ticia said...

Nat- That is incredible. And on that fabulous note, I bid you all good night, pleasant dreams, and cozy slumbers.

At 00:36 Blogger spacedlaw said...

BY THE WAY: Did any of the fiends put a YES on Kyle's post regarding cooperative creation? (I did and am rather excited about that too).

At 01:45 Blogger Marjorie said...

Congratulations, Nathalie, and also to Kyle & Quiche and AFP for the pictures. It looks as though you were all having a wonderful time.

I especially like the last one!

At 01:50 Blogger spacedlaw said...

And to think Lorraine was telling us that nothing happened while riding in May...

At 02:09 Blogger Lexocat said...

Hmmm, excellent point, Nathalie.

Oh, and congrats to you. How fun!

At 05:47 Blogger Phiala said...

Lovely. Of course, given the subjects and the photographer.

Nathalie, what fun! On Amazon! *grin*

I did not put a "yes" on Kyle's LJ; by the time I saw it there were already hundreds of people involved and it just seemed... too much. The idea was interesting though.

And now, off to the land of meetings that start too early and run too long. Though I suppose showering and dressing first would be advisable. My new postdoc might be a bit unhappy if her new boss showed up in sweats and smelly for this meeting she organized.

At 05:59 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Actually a friend of mine on LJ has had the same surprise email so we reckoned that it is just Lulu trying to boost its sales (even if they do say that it was an Amazon selection...).

At 07:21 Blogger louisa said...

Drive-by comment - been loving all the pics this week, you are a beautiful Empress, Miss Q. Hectic week - the shop celebrates its first birthday at the weekend, I've sorted the cupcakes, still need to get the right balloons. Will catch up with the rest of life next week, see you then....

At 07:40 Blogger Jess said...

I also would like to hear about how Kyle fended off the rustlers and the man-eating horses. I envision an epic battle involving use of the flash:

Kyle engages the rapid-shot setting. CLICK! FLASH!Rustlers: (running) Gaaaah!

Maneating Horses: ROAR.


At 07:50 Blogger Dan Guy said...

That looks like so, so, SO much fun.

At 08:51 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

RIGHT. The rustlers. And eaten by horses. Yes. I think that is a tale for another time......

SO yes, something DID happen on a May Morning, Wasn't sure if I got to talk about it or not tho, as you can understand, but it worked out well.

This would be a really nice morning to stay in bed...

At 08:54 Blogger spacedlaw said...

But the Boss is already up and twittering (or at the very least awake...).

Good morning (or is it good moaning?)

At 09:17 Blogger Beez said...

Ah 'Lo- son and heir is home sick today so I will have to come out and dig tomorrow and/or Friday.

Black hollyhocks! w00t!

At 09:25 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

COme on Friday, Beez. It's raining here anyway, A LOT, and looks as tho it will be hanging around. If you come Friday, I could stop by, and tomorrow is full.

Just spoke to the Boss, he is indeed awake, and he had some ideas for more photos for me to post!

Am doing so now!

At 09:35 Blogger Beez said...

Hurrah for more pics!

Also for rain = happy plants.

Friday it is.

At 09:37 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

New post with more photos!!!

Is up....

At 12:28 Blogger Ani said...

Quiche, how wonderful to have happy days with good friends and beautiful pictures to remember them all by!

Nathalie--big applause! Be proud!

At 13:10 Blogger Beez said...


At 13:17 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Uh, what are you waiting for?

At 14:00 Blogger One Sock Short said...

'kay. I'm up now, having called in sick from the headache I'd had since the day before. Feeling a little less headachy and rather more fit for company. Sorry about the bitchiness before.

Off to look at new post.

Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
