Abi is getting very good at mounting, riding, and dismounting on her own. Nathan is even gaining more confidence at riding on his own. And Jonny...well...we still lead the horse when Jonny is on board because...well...its Jonny! (doesn't that explain it all? :0) Ethan stood at the fence and begged "My Turn...my turn", so the Farmer mounted up and gave Ethan a ride too.
Here are some pictures of the mornings ride:
|Jonny climbing out the barn door...notice...NO SHOES!|
|Giddy up Strawberry...let's go.|
(I think Strawberry was confused...usually pulling back means stop...lol)
|Watching the fun.|
|Is it just me or does he look so OLD in this photo?!|
|Go Faster Daddy!|
|on top of the cattle sorting shoot|
See Nathan on the side...
|half way across|
|reaching the other side...|
He did this several times.
|The Farmer and E!|
|E didn't smile much, but he didn't want to be done either!|
|Abi mounting by herself - you go girl!|
|off she went...talking to her horse!|
|coming back to the barn...she really handles the horse well.|
We truly enjoy having Strawberry around...Thanks Uncle Derek for this amazing gift...and to Grandpa Converse and Grandpa Schlatter for helping with saddles and horse stuff! We truly are so blessed!
