Day 340

Today was the first time that we saddled our horse, Rose (that is the name she came with...it is not my favorite, but the girls love it so we will keep it). She was really really easy to saddle and didn't even seem to notice us putting it on her. We didn't bridle her because I need to pick up some reins for the bridle. But, we let the girls ride on her while we walked her around the paddock. They loved it. Acadia was so mad when I took her off of Rose. It was funny. She is a horse lover. One of the first things she says to me in the morning now is 'horse? horse?' and anytime we get in the car she asks the same thing...'horse? horse?' She shows no fear, which I think may be a bad thing for one so small (I have had to pull her out from under the horse a couple of times), but she seems to be catching on to what she can and can't do around horses.
I am thankful for my little cowgirls.

OK. We need more pictures of Rose. We need to see her face, too! Is she taking a lot of your time?

How fun. This will be an invaluable experience for all of you guys and a lot of fun in the meantime.

No not really. Just about 30 minutes a day...that includes drive time and feeding/grooming her. I love it. Oh course when we want to ride her it takes more than 30 minutes.
