Time went on as it always does and it shed new light on the idea of sharing. The horses greet the kids at the gate, and sulk if they don't get picked.
Caddie has surprised me with her gentleness towards the children, and Pan, well she's still 'Pan' and she gets better at being her amazing, yet somewhat stubborn self, everyday.
Once the pony cart is fixed we'll be learning to drive as well but for now the kids are learning the in's and out's of stubborn horses. In particular stubborn Pan. (Photo Credit Sarah Martin)
Eventually the kids, and the horses, worked me to a point where I just let them ride. We do other things like brush and clean feet, a job in which they are finding more and more fascinating every day. (Photo Credit Ashley Mould)
She's good with them, in a kind and gentle sort of way but if they aren't paying attention she sure lets them know. Her body is in the best shape I've ever seen, thanks to the the three to five hours a week of walking and trotting around in a circles. Her attitude towards the children is fantastic. In fact I think she likes them more than she likes me. (Photo Credit Ashley Mould)
