Rick's mom loves it when her visits coincide with flowers and/or fruit (I'd accuse her of coming JUST for those, but I know better. :-) She's been out picking berries in our garden every day, and yesterday she decided to look for any remaining good cherries on the tree on east side of the house.
When she recruited Brian to help her, he decided he needed a "boost," too - only Breezy would be a lot more fun than a ladder!
He didn't last long; soon it was more fun to carve on a stick (note Breezy tied to the gate in the distance).Then it was back on Breezy; he even gave Grandma a ride!
I have been disappointed that Brian hasn't shown more interest in riding his pony since Cowboy Campmeeting. Then I found out that he has been going out and riding her around the pasture bareback with her halter and lead rope! Not long rides, but he has been enjoying her nontheless. Today with my help he was able to bridle her by himself twice (Grandma helped him yesterday); I predict he'll have even more fun with the control the bridle gives him.
That's it for now at . . .
