Tuff gives his first ride.

Kirstin's nephew Daniel loves horses. He is only 14 months old. When he sees a horse, he will point at it and say Kiki. Kiki is what he calls his Aunt Kirstin. Daniel is our little cowboy in the making. He weights about 25lbs so he is the weight of a small saddle. Tuff didn't mind carrying him around and Daniel loved being able to ride Tuff.

Kirstin was lungeing Tuff and decided to see what he would do if she stood still. This looks really neat and Tuff did OK. He slowed down a little but he continued a slow trot all the way around her. Our entire family was there so there were about 11 people watching her train. That's the most people ever to be around Tuff and he did great. Loved all of the extra attention he was getting.

We are still hoping to see you all in September! It will be a whirlwind weekend, but we think we can do it! Will let you know when we know for sure.

Until later...Karen and Tripp
