Horsing Around

April 16, 2012

Last weekend Poppet sat on her first real life horse! 

Her daddy is an experienced horseman, and has been dying to share his love of horses with his little girl.   Although she was a little small to go for a ride, she did all the right things. Held on and even managed a pat or two.  Daddy was so proud :)

She is really gentle with animals and pats very carefully, it is ever so sweet.

I hope she maintains and develops this love of animals. I think it is so important for children to learn empathy for other living things and it would seem that caring for animals would be a lovely way to begin that journey.

Unfortunately we are not allowed pets we were are living, but I am looking forward to having some furry friends around sometime in the future.
