Some people in our church invited the girls to come and visit their baby horses, so today Granny and I drove the kids out to their place. It was wonderful! There were LOTS of horses and lots of babies and all of them were calm and tame and happy to be petted. Katherine was thrilled. She has long loved the idea of horses, but has rarely been close to a real live horse. Today she got to see and touch so many different horses and see what they are really like. You could just watch her confidence grow as she learned to approach them. It was fun just to watch her. Rachel was frightened of the horses at first - they were BIG. But after she realized that they wouldn't hurt her she got closer and closer to them. She was very interested in the babies. And then she noticed the cats. Rachel is a cat lover and she was delighted to see kitties! She chased the poor cats and followed them around as they tried to hide. I'm sure the cats were relieved when we left. Both girls came home filthy and excited, happy to have sampled farm life.
