Buster's New Posse

My sister and brother-in-law bought a pony.
His name is Buster.
He's pretty much awesome.

I feel kinda sorry for him. He has completely clueless handlers.

"How DOES this thing go on?"

How many adults does it take to bridle a horse?

WAY too many, it turns out. Let's just try some "natural horsemanship" today, okeydokey?

Teenager eyerolling caught on film in close up:

Facegrabbing a cousin. She didn't mind. A beautiful fall day at the farm.

Trine and Matt (sis and BIL) ride off into the sunset.

All of the kids reacted very well to the pony. They are naturals. We'll get better at this horse thing (I watched about 100 videos on "how to bridle o horse" last night!) and now the kids have a nice, big project to work on. It's not video games or the latest Iphone, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it could be a fun distraction for them in the years to come!
I didn't get any pictures of my Matty (he was off giving 4 wheeler rides to his cousins and sibs). Despite the billion asian beetles that were divebombing us, it turned out to be just an idyllic day of hanging out and enjoying each other.
Minnesota in the fall is pure Heaven.
