I AM NOT A CITY SLICKER!
While we were at my parents' house over the weekend, Matt got old Biscuit ready and let the girls ride him. Kelsey actually rode him by herself, she has herded cows with Matt a few times and rides a horse on her own pretty well. At my parents' house, Matt would lead Biscuit down the road then give Kelsey the reins. Biscuit's girlfriend Miss Kate would get herself in such a diller with him gone and cause such a scene!! Run the fence line, whinney, stomp, try to get over the fence, etc. That made old Biscuit feel good, so he would turn around after Matt stopped leading him and run back to his Katie. Kelsey would pull on the reins and make him walk back instead of run. Matt would walk back up the road and find the 2 horses reunited with a fence between them, with Kelsey still in the saddle, then they would do it all again!
I took a few pictures of the girls on Biscuit together. I told my dad I felt like such a city slicker because I was taking pictures of them on a horse. My mom reminded me that she took pictures of us on our horses, and then I reminded her that if she were to take pictures of us every time we got on a horse at my house she would have been taking pictures a few times a week!! If only my kids could have the childhood I did.
