Free Ride

(The first picture shows the horse collapsing, the second picture shows that the collapse was not enjoyable for Joshua.)

Horse rides began when Megan was about a year old. Bull rides began at Luke's request years later. They are an almost daily occurrence at our house. Even though the horse/bull is getting older, and the riders are increasing in number, size and weight, and the horse/bull has a broken back, this tradition continues.

If more than one child is riding, it is a horse ride. If there is only one child riding, the area is cleared of people and toys and the rodeo-type bull ride begins.

Both cause squeals of laughter and tears (not from laughing). But, there is never a shortage of riders. They always return.

This may all come to an end soon. I don't know who will be more upset; the riders or the horse/bull. The horse/bull is going to get his broken back fixed, and I'm not sure the doctor will approve a quick return to this type of activity.
