I'm so proud of my daughter.

So my back went out yesterday - right after morning chores (at least everyone got fed and fresh water before I was bed ridden ).

My nine year old (and my super wonderful husband) has been helping out with feeding and watering our horse Ezra. He can be a little pushy and I've talked with her about making sure he stays out of her personal space, and pushing him back if he gets too close.

We've had him for less than two weeks, and he is the first horse she has spent much time around, so this is all new to her.

This morning she fed him his breakfast (some senior feed and black oil sunflower seeds) a little late, since I still can't walk very far. My husband had given him hay earlier, so he wasn't starving, but he looooves his senior feed. He was being pushy, and she told me how it only took her two tries to push him off, and then he went back to munching hay to wait for her to get him his breakfast .

WooHoo, good for her. And good for you teaching her to demand respect at such a young age.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the kind words everybody .

She's really taken to the horsie lifestyle. The other day she was telling me how it felt so good to do work to help take care of the horse - and it was fun too .
