I Heart Peanut and Joe
I bet everyone is so tired of me talking about Peanut, but I just can't stop. I really love our little sorrel horse. Yesterday the kids had off school. Which I think is a plot to make all the SAHMs not go vote. Because really, who is going to drag all their kids to go and vote. I had to wait until Mr. Cowboy got home from work. Okay, well, I will get off my soap box. Now, since there is "never anything to do and life is so boring" says Big Cowpoke. I got Peanut out for the boys to ride. Little Cowpoke had to go first. He always has to go first. I think it has to do with him being a middle child. So, Little Cowpoke went first and Big Cowpoke went inside to play online at PBS kids. So, here is what Peanut and my Little Cowpoke did. They practiced whoa. And trotting. They were so cute!! Little Cowpoke loves to ride. I actually let him walk away from me and around a cone and then back to me. I was nervous, but Peanut and Little Cowpoke weren't. So, I got them on video. It's not the best video, but Little Cowpoke is sure cute!! I think Little Cowpoke did an awesome job. He even rode around the cones I put up for barrels. He trotted in between the cones. Peanut was so good at stopping when Little Cowpoke wanted to stop. I am so excited to finally have a really good kid's horse. I have been searching for ever for a really good old gelding. Oh, and because I have not posted a picture of Joe in a long time. I must. I have to show everyone how huge he is. Here he is with Little Cowpoke. Joe is all fluffy for the winter time. I love it. Here Joe is walking around the yard with Big Cowpoke. They played outside for hours. I swear Joe sticks around the kids better than the dog does. Just look at that rump. He sure has grown up. He will be one year old in January. We will have to have a birthday party for him.
