LG's first horse ride

Horses, donkeys, cows, camels, goats, cats, dogs are common around where we live. Sounds like LG grows up in Animal Farm, ain't he?

Every evening, he watches as the horses ride to the fair and the camels trudge their way along with the clinking of the bracelets in their knees; as they pass, LG does a little jig to express his happiness.

All these days, I wasn't sure of whether he is old enough to ride one. Finally, we decided to try last Saturday when the crowd was much leaner than Thursdays and Sundays. Contrary to my expectation, he enjoyed his short ride and didn't care as much if we were following him or not. He happily waved at us; I like a fool was tailing the horse and The Seniol was tailing me requesting me to stop and let the boy enjoy his ride. I present a picture of being a not so protective mother but letting LG go by himself even for 5 minutes was disturbing..didn't want to take chances and I followed him. It's time I change my ways and give the boy some room. Didn't have a camera handy to take a picture..maybe next time.
