Homeschooler Field Trip

A local group of homeschooled children came by the farm yesterday for a tour and introduction to horses! They were all little tykes, under four years old, and full of energy and laughs. They got to see the newborn lambs and baby chicks and during their snack break I harnessed up Merlin and explained how carts and harnesses work. They were so into it, asking questions and petting Merlin's furry head. A few of the brave kids went on a little cart ride down the road with me and their teacher and it was a blast to see them light up and smile as Merlin went from a walk into a trot. What a wonderful thing to share.
