Since becoming an owner of a horse Charli Beth has had to up her responsibilities. She gets up early before to make her bed, eat breakfast, feed Ranger and then finish getting ready for the day. Each morning she spends at least 10-15 minutes with him until I call her back home. One morning I even had to run in the rain to get her attention and at night she prays for him too. It's amazing the love that she has already picked up for him, even if he is still learning her.
She has had to overcome some fears. Mainly, her fear of poop since Daddy made her shovel it from the barn. She even spilled some down her clothes and didn't even gag. Bravo to the girl who used to even gag at bugs!
We are working with Ranger to figure out some equipment issues then hopefully their riding will start back up. He seems to already be getting fat and sassy here at home, since he is getting fed twice a day. Charli is already wanting to "go fast" but she still has lots of learning to do.
In getting her dream of becoming a cowgirl and future barrel racer I hope this helps install the honest work bone in her. I want her to always be a passionate hard worker in everything that she has.
