The grandparents have been looking for a kid friendly horse pretty much since Ayden and Rylee were born. Whelp, it finally happened! Ayden and Rylee now have a new friend for when they visit their grandma and grandpa.
Lucy is 16 years old and such a sweetheart. She is extremely gentle and kid friendly. She doesn't kick (although we still teach the kids not to walk behind her), and she doesn't spook easily.
Ayden and Rylee spent Saturday afternoon riding Lucy, with Grandpa walking them around their property. They had so much fun! Rylee really thought we should bring Lucy home with us, but she gets to stay at the grandparents. It's perfect. Ayden and Rylee get a horse, but the grandparents get to take care of it! heehee

I'm not going to lie. Even though Lucy is a gentle horse and I know Grandpa would never intentionally put Ayden and Rylee in harms way, it still makes me a little nervous. They are a rodeo family and he knows his way with animals, but we're still gonna need to find these kids some helmets!
