Squelches With Horses
My kiddo started her first job today, working as a stable hand and assistant at a therapeutic horseback riding program for handicapped children. I'm so proud of her for finding and arranging this for herself but sorry her first day had to be such a cold, rainy and muddy one. Squelching through the mud didn't dampen her enthusiasm any but it sure wore her out.This breed of horses are called Haflingers and they have a wonderful disposition. They look very much alike to me but my girlie is quickly learning to tell one from another and is impatient when I can't readily pick her favorites out of the herd. Go here for more info on the riding program.
