Got all my tack and grooming box out... and they stood patiently, I was wondering what was coming next
'PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE CAN WE BRUSH DUFFY'... in English... they must have practised bless them, neither have ever uttered a word in English to me before... their reasoning? They saw me get chucked off and I need to be careful of my back... they'll get the moutning block so they can see over the top of her... little tear in my eye!
I had to gently let them down... its not something I can risk with such a big horse, if she shifts and knocks one of them over or anything worse I'd never forgive myself... but they held her whilst I put my hat on etc and she put her head right down, breathing all over them xD
See, if only adults could be more like the kids!!
