I took a lot of pictures today, but this is probably my favorite.
Almost as long as I can remember, my Dad has been helping me and my siblings manage and train horses. He started with a shetland pony named Nuggets, who had a mean streak, and continued on to help us each train our own horse.
The horse in the background is my horse Kieko. She was born on our farm when I was 16 and Dad gave her to me as a yearling. He helped me halter break her, and lounge her. He held her while introduced her to a saddle and when I got on her for the first time.
Today, dad and my husband introduced my horse's first foal to a halter. My two favorite men, working with one of my favorite animals. I may not have many chances or much time to ride anymore, but I'm so grateful I can still have horses in my life. And my Dad. ❤
