On Friday we visited a local farm thanks to Jake’s preschool teacher and my kids got to ride horses for the first time ever. Jake had been afraid of horses in years past when he had an opportunity to ride one, but this time he got right up there and was not scared at all. Abby was fearless and CRIED when we took her off. She spent the whole time we were there, kissing the horses (from afar) every chance she got.
The family was really nice, they taught us some horse safety, and they even provided drink boxes for the kids and sweet tea for the grown-ups.
And the best part of all? It really didn’t smell all that bad, although I could have done without having to walk through “road apples” to get to the pasture. Yuck.
