Whoa Nellie!

Today was riding day.
I took the Littles to the home of a friend who boards horses. He has a wonderful gal running the operation... and she just happens to be a close friend as well...
she is like The Horse Whisperer, in real life. No joke.

She understands horses from top to bottom,

From tooth to tail.
"Ewww! said the Littles.

Yes, my friend Beth is a gentle person...both with the horses,

...and the Littles.

After a few passes inside the ring to learn the commands and get the "feel" of the horses, 

Beth led them outside.

I found it amazing that these small children were able to trust that these enormous animals would respond to the commands that Beth taught them.

They had the best teacher...and they listened and learned.

We want to say "thanks" to Miss Beth,

and Whoa Nellie Farm for a summer adventure,

we won't soon forget.
