This girl has even turned the footboard of her bed into a horse, using her blanket for saddle pads and pillows for saddles. Her bridles and halters are made out of head bands and hair ties. (love her imagination) Even the arms of our chairs and sofas have become her horses. ( until mommy sees her) Our poor boxer ( Roxy) has been treated like a horse since she arrived here a year ago. Even to the point of Jaden checking her hooves (paws) and using a stick as her hoof pick so she can pretend to clean them. This girl even turns her leash into reins and pretends to ride her. She is even teaching her to jump all kinds of obstacles. Roxy is such a good sport, she just goes along with all of it.
So for her birthday we decided to get her a grooming kit and a book on taking care of horses. Her big brother Kevin and his wife Megan (who has a beautiful horse) gave her another book on horses. She has enjoyed reading through them and soaking up more info. We decided this summer to have Jaden start taking horseback riding lessons. She also went to a couple of camps. The Lord has given her such a heart and soul for horses. She is a natural.
