This is has been a summer of firsts here for the kids.
Nine year old Ty has been doing a lot more riding this summer. So much more that he even had his first ride in the pasture to help us move cows a few weeks ago. He rode his sister’s steady mount, Pommel.
He has also spent plenty of time riding the cutest pony ever, Lil Banjo. Who bucked him off this summer. His face when that happened was absolutely priceless. It was more excitement than fear. Oh to be young again!
And he’s started his first colt- Orphan George, who’s registered as DX Gorgeous Georges. If had I had the energy, I’d show you picture of the two of them, but my fuel level is on empty right now. For now if you want to see what he looked like as a baby, here you go.
Since his first ride out in the pasture, he and Kelsey have taken a couple rides together. The other day I was able to capture them riding together on film. Enjoying the day, and the company of each other. Kelsey is riding her horse Hope, and Ty is riding, Kelsey’s horse, Pommel.
Those two are so close; it’s really nice to see how much they love each other.
