Horses

25 Apr

For the five years I lived in Maryland, our neighbors had a horse named Shadrack.  Family lore includes many stories of walks to pet, feed and ogle this poor horse.  There are no live horses within walking distance of our house now, but our local park does feature a four horse, see-saw type, bouncy, play structure.

Every time we are at the park, Luke needs to ride each one of the horses.  After a few moments of bouncing on the white horse, he’s signing “all done” and pointing at the brown horse.  Rinse. Repeat.  Here’s his four horse friends – now named Licorice, Lemon, Vanilla and Chocolate.

And, although he can only manage to ride one horse at a time, he doesn’t care for any other children riding the horses while he’s at the park.  They are, after all, his private personal herd.

    So true, the negative sounds and motions when other children approach the horses are hysterical!!!!
