The Young Horse Whisperer

My grandson, Joseph lives in the city and visits me on a couple of weekends a month.  He started school this year.  Last year he would live with me for four days each fortnight an occurrence not happening this year I am still coming to terms with.

A couple of weekends he came to stay and we have two new ponies to teach to lead and the little man did it himself with me talking him through the moves.  This child has a genuine love of animals and looks into their eyes and they seem to do as he asks with persistence, patience, give and take.  I had a lump in my throat after this session.

Wonderful to see Joseph with such a lovely gift, you captured it well and it's a pleasure to view.

Take care,

Lovely photos Lizzie
it's wonderful to see that love and sensitivity for animals in someone so young, I'm sure you have had a positive hand in that!

I think we can all learn to be better humans by spending more time with other animals. I wonder sometimes about kids that have no contact at all with any live animal other than the human kind.
