Ok, you guys knew when I finally did get a horse, you would probably be bored w/alot of horse posts.  Well, here is a 7 minute video of my HoneyDew!  This is after he had been in the stall for almost a week because of snow and rainy weather.




After Travis carries in wood for a fire and Allyson and Kaleb do the chores, Daddy makes them all a cup of hot chocolate!
Allyson just finished studying birds in her science class...she loves birds!  She saw this woodpecker outside her window today and took this picture.

Great post! I had fun watching Honeydew run around. The snow looks beautiful with all the trees, and the woodpecker is very cool. We have small woodpeckers around hear, but they like to hide from you. So they are hard to see sometimes.

I will never get tired of seeing honeydew. I loved it. It was over too quickly. he looks like he already has developed a very deep bond with you, candace. Loved the pics. I want to move there today.

Boy, I wouldn't want to ride him now. I would like to see James get on him and see what he does. That fire sure is cozy and the hot chocolate sounds delicious. I wonder if that is the woodpecker pecking holes in your house siding trying the eat the bee eggs?

Dear Allyson, Kaleb, & Travis,
what were you all doing to get Honey Dew excited? ...i sure enjoyed seeing you all work...it looks like your reward was getting warm from the hot choc and the cozy fire.....it gives me a warm feeling seeing children working!!!

You may notice in the video that HoneyDew is hesitant to run over to the other side of the pasture near the road...until Allyson runs up there? ...that's because he is scared! hahaha! He is such a chicken, unless Kevin or I are beside him telling him it's OK, and he's hearing our voice.

I could NEVER get tired of seeing pics/vids of HoneyDew! I wish we could get a 7 minute video of you riding him! What kind of chores do Allyson and Kaleb do? Hot chocolate next to the fire sounds SO fun! :)

How beautiful...and there's no way I could ride him like that! I thought the same thing...I would love to see Candace riding him like that...how fun it must be...I can relate to Honeydew being a chicken :-)
