This kid. This mare! She’s amazing. There have been moments as children’s interest wains, that I’ve wondered is we did the right thing getting her. Maybe she should go on to a home where other children need her more, would make better use of her.
Then there are days like this.
Trying out his new reins he got for Christmas 8 was tired of being lead. He wanted turned loose to steer all by himself. So we went to the corral and did just that. She’s a zippy little thing. But she never left a walk. She patiently went where asked, acknowledging his try instead of his lack of skill.
Someday he’ll be a great rider. Especially with her there to guide him along the way.
