I'm such a good pony! I am really good at carrying the kids around and walking next to them. Although. . .I did have to test them out real quick to see if I could drag them to grass, but Allie and Terry put me back in line, so I behaved myself.
|Waiting for my wee ones!|
I did some work with Tommy and Lily practicing Showmanship. I have to be real careful with the little ones and take small steps so I don't step on their feet.

Then we did some riding. I have to be careful with riding, too, and not move very fast so they stay on my back. Except a few time when I did move a little fast. . . oops, but they stayed on, so it's all good! But I do really try to be extra careful with the kids on my back.
Tommy is still working on his balance, so he practices while I stand still. He is such a brave cowboy! I have to close my eyes to concentrate and stand super still when he is not holding on.
|Riding all by himself!|
|Working on that balance|
Lily is much better, but she is older. I even got to trot with her! At first, I was unsure of how I was supposed to trot, so I went a little bit fast. But then I kept feeling Lily lose balance, so I would have to stop and start all over. So after a few times, I did a nice steady and slow jog. That was much better and Lily was able to sit that without losing her balance.
|We make a great team!|
I think Tommy and Lily really have a good chance of doing well in the lead line classes with me! And even if we don't win, we will still have a lot of fun! I think I am almost as excited for show time as they are!
|Even if I had fun, I still gotta roll the work off!|
Lily, Tommy, and Terry got to check out my new crib after I got done working. Tommy is country to the core!
|Eating a corn from the field|
|Lily put a flower on Shady's head|
|These are Terry's favorite|
|Isaac thinks he is little like the kids and donkey. We will never tell him he is not little, he would be too upset!|
|Shady is always a favorite!|
|Look at that!!|
