Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?

Or run with them anyway?

On Monday we went running again. Across the street from where I live (I’m in those flats you see in the distance):

Just so you have an idea, I live in the 2nd largest city in the province of Gelderland. Which happens to be the largest province of the Netherlands. It’s not New York City or Chicago Urban, but it’s a city, make no mistake. But here, in this city, in the park where we run (or rather around the park) is a farm, with sheep and horses. This time of year is AMAZING because of all the baby animals that are being born. In the park we have a petting zoo, complete with all sorts of animals – sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, cows, rabbits. I am such a sucker for baby animals and I love seeing the little lammies frolicking around on the farm land when I’m running or even having a stroll or cycling through the park on my way home.

So yesterday, we were running. And for only the second time ever (the first time was last year) this old grey guy started galloping next to us!

Call me cheesy but this makes running, heck even being outdoors, so worth it. I absolutely LOVED that he galloped around the fence next to us as we ran through. Where else in a city can you have this experience?

I love where I live so much sometimes!
