Today, we visited our friend Sarah at the stable she volunteers at. I wish I could say I owned and rode horses when I was little, but I never had the opportunity. However, as an animal lover, I like horses and I was super duper excited to get the chance to make a fuss over some real beauties today. We were most interested in this little pony though. If a boy named Sue ever thought his name was bad, he should talk to this lovely little shetland of the male variety. Meet Angel.
He was an old, gentle boy. Jack and I brought him some carrots, bananas, and even some freshly baked bread! Instant friendship! Since he was so tiny, Jack was able to get up close. He even had a short ride on his back! He loved it. "Like my rocking horse in my room" he told me. There happened to be a red tractor at the place too, so, as is the law in Jack's eyes, we must set aside at least half and hour for him to sit on it. There were loads of lovely doggies to pet too. Jack had such a great time, and has talked about it all evening. I have a feeling he has a wee notion of Sarah! Watch out Cathal, you have competition by the looks of things!
