243 of 365 memories...a girl and her horse

As soon as Hannah found out that she was going to be able to ride a horse,
her excitement level went from 100 to Def Com 10!
She asked me, "do you think the horse will like me"?
Why wouldn't the horse like you? I
don't know, maybe he will know I'm nervous.
I think he will like you more because you are nervous, he will want to take care of you!

I told her ahead of time, if you want to ride give me a secret thumbs up and if you don't want to give me no thumbs, she was ready!!

my baby!

she wanted to find HER horse after all the rides were over.
His name is Chico and she was on a mission.

Yep, that's him!!

giving him some love!!

We walked back over to the other girls, to look at the rest of the horses. After a moment I realized Hannah was gone. I'm looking and looking and then I see her....

back again

hi there friend

she was in LOVE.
Can you blame her?
He was such a gentleman.

We have had MANY conversations about horses since we left Mr. Chico.
How much do they cost?
Can you keep them in your back yard?
Do they really poop that much?
A lot, no and yes.

We have decided that when she is older we will have another conversation about horses.
She woke up on Monday morning and told me she was feeling much older today :)
That's my girl!!

I totally had a horse phase. I remember going through the want ads looking at the horses for sale, convinced that I could save up enough money...

(So, if ya ever need to keep her busy :) )

These pictures are priceless. I love the ones where she's looking up at that big horse. Makes you realize how tiny she still is!

What a fun outing! You are a good mom. Horses scare the daylights out of me. I wouldn't let mine ride!
