horses, horses everywhere …

Our little guy has a thing for horses.

It was his first word.  And his favorite word (he says it when he wakes, before he goes to sleep and about 150 times in between):

“-Orse!”

He carries one everywhere we go.

All the time.

And it’s not entirely his fault.

I mean … with a dad who’s a rodeo cowboy

Forward Ho! He lives in a house with more than a few horse pix on the wall (17 at my last count … one of the reasons we call it “The Cowboy Cottage.”)

And even a few on the floor.

“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fire.” – Sharon Ralls

I guess there are worse things for him to be obsessed with …

  1. That’s my boy and he is learning from a very early age what Xenophon, Winston Churchill, Will Rogers and Nancy Reagan have all been credited with saying…

    “The best thing for the inside of a man is the outside of a horse.”

    So many good times to come my boy, just remember as you go through life to ‘keep the forked end down!’ More often than not anyway.
