"There is something about the outside of a horse
that is good for the inside of a man."
A piece of our winter trip to Nanny and Paw Paw's: a visit to the barn, where Nanny helps take care of 29 horses. There is something about the way these creatures speak to children that is unique, universal, and indescribable. Papa teaches Big B about the electric fence, and which wild green things the horses like to eat. Then Big B, after patience beyond measure, rides. Little b had a brief sit atop the majestic animal as well, touching it carefully, happily. It is a pleasure being a parent and watching a memory being made, feeling quite sure it will stick.
