horse crazy

Thanks to the generosity of a friend my children have been able to help halter train her new colt and fillies.
They are all so tickled to go out and work with the horses even with the bugs and heat.

Bub and Princess getting to touch the older filly for the first time.

All the kids working with the 1 week old filly and her very protective momma.

This is part of what makes home schooling fun!
We can take a day off book learning and take a day trip to do some hands on learning.
Princess is very interested in becoming a veternarian so this feeds her curiousity and love of animals.

I think we finally found a subject everyone can enjoy ;-)
I hope we are able to do this more over the summer.

A hard morning's work comes to an end with the baby sneaking a snack.
