I wanna be a cowboy

Well, it has happened. The cowboy blood that runs deep in Ryan's veins is starting to surface. Recently we adopted Grandpa Haslam's horse Socks. A friend in our ward was nice enough to let us rent out a place for him to stay. Socks is somewhere around 30 years old so we don't know how long the fun will last, but for now Ryan is going almost daily to see to his needs and ride him a little. The boys are getting the hang of using the reins.

Charlie had a fit when I took him off the horse.

Not the best pictures, but I'm sure we'll have many more opportunities for better ones. It's fun for me to see the cowboy hat, Wranglers, and boots side of Ryan. Especially the Wranglers side. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

I wasn't introduced anyone encompassing the whole hat, boots & Wrangler getup till I went to school at Ricks. (Not normally my thing, but there are some perks.)
Have fun with your new pet! I bet your boys are LOVIN' it!

That's so cool you have Grandpa Haslam's horse now!! My cousin and I were lucky enough to have him take us a few times when he was in much fun!

How fun is that?! I would have never guessed Ryan to be a cowboy guy. But, he is Haslam, they never cease to amaze!! LOL!!!
Oh yeah, Alex looks like a natural on the horse!! So cute!!
