Blessings of Life in the Country

Our neighbor, Kathy, boards her horses in our stable. We get to enjoy the beauty of these animals, watch them run around, and let little visiting friends pet and feed them. In the summer, Hannah has a job of giving them their evening hay, a good way for her to learn a little responsibility. Every so often, Kathy takes the time to let our girls sit on one of her horses and she leads them around the pasture. The girls absolutely love it. This past Sunday was Abbie's first time up on a horse. She finally decided to give it a try, though we didn't think she would, as she kept hanging on to us and saying, "I don't want him to eat me!" But once she was up there, well, her smile says it all!
