Jen's daughter, E, happily climbed up on Washoe and waited for D to get settled on Estes. Only, he was having no part of it. We managed to get him up on her, but that was as far as we could go. His poor little nerves were shot just at the thought of being on her - and she's a short little mare. Despite being absolutely terrified, he managed to find a smile for the camera...
Mom headed out, leading Washoe with E on board and I followed up riding Estes.
We made it around the block intact and stopped just long enough for Jen to snap a picture.
I was able to convince D to give Estes a treat for letting him sit up on her. I just love how soft her eyes are and how gentle she's being taking the treat from his hand.
