When I grow up I want to be a farmer with 5 other friends. Here are the animals that we are going to have on the farm pigs, cows, elk, chickens, goats, a cat, a dog, lamas, sheep, fish, frogs, geese, mules, donkeys, ducks, bunnies, and of course horses. I love horses.
Did you know I take horse-riding lessons? A week ago I learned how to canter. It feels like a lot of bucks over and over. You hold onto the saddle and reins with one hand. The other hand holds onto the mane. The trick is to hold on but to relax and let the horse do the work.
