L and her daughter E came over Sunday afternoon for some horsey fun. L has been itching for horse time and I am more than happy to share Gwyn. E is a couple months older than Kaylee and they get along for the most part once they both get over the initial shyness. They live more in metro Detroit proper, so it can be a bit of a hike to come out to our place.
|A very pouty Hazel who did NOT want to switch where she was brushing Gwyn. Gwyn is being a Good Girl.|
|Saffron was jealous.|
|Hazel also brushed her own hair.|
|L showed everyone how to pick out hooves. Gwyn was, once again, A Very Good Girl.|
|Everyone had to take a turn picking out the hoof. Even Hazel.|
|I had some sparkly garland that we fashioned into a 'bridle' since the girls weren't going to be off a leadline at all. They thought it was great.|
|"Okay Hazel, hug Kaylee and hang on!" So Kaylee hugged Hazel back and I got this super sweet photo.|
|Saffron played with the other garland.|
|"I WANT TO GO OVER THE JUMPS TOO!"|
|Both of the older kids also wanted to 'go fast' so we ran around and Gwyn was A Very Very Good Girl and had a nice trot. Though I find that kids seem to be able to sit very bouncy things well anyway.|
|Hazel was upset that everyone else was riding. So she got time by herself on Gwyn and I think really had a blast.|
|Thank goodness for L, because I would not do this with just me. There still needs to be a toddler handler to keep a hand on Hazel in case she gets off balance.|
|"No, actually, I don't want attention, human... Get it off. I take it back."|
|E leads Gwyn around. Gwyn was still a Good Girl.|
Hazel was VERY upset that other people were riding "Her [My] Pony"
