horsin' around

Meet Chester, the stick-horse:

And Hi-Ho-Silver-Away (she thinks it's one long name):

This equestrian duo tends to get on my grouchy side when they engage in illegal hallway races.

For purposes of front-yard galloping, however, they are truly hard to beat.

Happy trails!

Emma's been spoiled by a mount which make clip-clopping sounds when she squeezes his ear. Love it. =)

Baby Girl has a stick horse too, but the stick has a fabric covering on it. She wore a hole in the covering and now the stick falls out of the horses head. Sigh... did you make your kid's horses? They are darling!

Haha! Illegal hallway races, that's adorable!

Taya just face-plants everyone time I pull out the stick horse....maybe when she is a little more coordinated :)

They are so cute Nic!!!
