Our first horse encounter

A few weeks ago we all went out to Mr. Bob's house to help Wes deliver some hay. Wes usually does this solo, but he thought we could take the whole family and give the kids a chance to see their horses. We may live in the country, but we don't do large animal livestock (and have no intentions of doing so). I was not so sure how the kids would do around horses considering none of them like dogs, especially Avery. As with most things, they were slow to warm up but they eventually started feeding them some hay and "talking" to them. Mr. Bob even let Austin & Caleb sit on one of the gentle ones- Chief. Avery declined the offer. We weren't exactly dressed for horse riding, but Austin was sure to remember his cowboy hat.
