Yesterday while waiting for the farrier, I watched in awe as Harmony and our daughter Ali interacted. It's been forever since I've seen the two of them together, and I had all but forgotten the bond they have. Not sure who I was more amazed with, the daughter or Harmony.
After clipping bridle paths, and grooming, she hopped right on Harmony bareback and halter rode her around in the pasture - in shorts. Harmony obeyed every request both on the ground, and while mounted - even after such a long time off. Ali is such a natural with animals, something she inherited from her dad. I only wish I had half their natural ability.
Horses can be so forgiving, this is when it all sunk in:
|Ali & Harmony and Brad & Cierra|
|Yes Harmony, I know...|
|Ali trying to figure out what is so special about the horses favorite corner.|
|Havin' fun & trotting around|
Nothing is as heartwarming as a horse and their girl...
|Harmony's girl knows all the right spots|
...and the feeling of hope...
|Ali & Harmony|
...something I saw and felt, over and over again this weekend :)
