We've really been enjoying our quality time with Pop, and I think he's having fun, too. Tonight he came down to the barn to watch Sophie's riding lesson.
Pop's an animal lover- I never fully realized how much until years ago when he let it slip that as a child he'd dreamed of being a vet. So it was really cute when he asked a lot of questions about why the trainer had Sophie do certain things, or about stuff we did while grooming or tacking up.
He clearly enjoyed getting to know James and Sug and was tickled pink when I asked him to graze Sug while I cleaned tack. He was amazed at the way she demolished every blade of grass in front of her. "Does she ever stop eating? Does she even breathe?"
We're looking forward to bringing Pop back to the barn. I think Sug and James will be happy to see him. He's pretty free and loose with the carrots, if you know what I mean .
Sug wants to come out for a wee nibble.
She's not gonna go anywhere, right?
It's just like walking a big dog!
Does she ever stop to breathe?
