Afternoon at the Arena

Willy aspires to be a cow dog.

 

Willy was happy to meet Spade the horse. He had no idea what sort of adventure we were going on that would include this big animal but as always he was ready.

We walked to the arena in the pasture behind our house. Willy attentively watched everything my husband did with Spade. He was very interested in how they loaded the steers in the chute.

 My husband and son were practicing roping and working their horses. Willy enjoyed watching them. He REALLY wanted to chase the steers right along side the horses and was very disappointed that I wouldn’t let him. (I didn’t want him to get hurt.)

He was curious about these strange smelling animals. They had snotty noses, made WAY too much noise and were a little bit cantankerous, but they sure did look like fun to chase!

Since I wouldn’t let him chase the steers, he opted instead to hang out with my grandson, Clay.

All in all it was a great adventure. He enjoyed every minute of it. Until next time, Happy Trails!
