Sir Prize!

The Park recently bought two beautiful ladies, Freckles and Lady, to pull one of the surreys.

Unknown to the previous owners or Park personnel, they were both pregnant. Now that is a bargain! Buy one, get one free. A few weeks ago I introduced you to our newest gal, her name is Prize.

And, today, I would like to introduce you to Lady's new Colt, Sir.
So, now we have Sir and Prize, perfect names for such a wonderful surprise blessings.

Just look at those knobby knees, reminds me of myself when I was a girl, before the freshman 15 and birthing 2 babies, oh, the good 'ole days. What fun it will be to watch this pair grow up.

As you can imagine, the Buckaroo's are making their plans on how to saddle them up and go out in search of the bad guys, guns-a-blazing. They long to be fierce, fearless, and wild, and I want that for them. I can't think of anything worse than raising two boys that become bored men, filled with caricatures of masculinity. I don't want them to spend their weekends in front of sports on the t.v. watching people in the game rather than being in the game, or playing video games all day while their children are outside playing.

I believe that masculinity is bestowed, and what a blessing that my little guys have Big Buckaroo to help them learn who they are and to pass on the essential knowledge and confidence of their strength. I love that when I ask Little Buckaroo what he wants to be when he grows up that he says, "I want to be a cowboy because my brother is going to be and we will be warriors for God". Camaraderie and God, my heart is exploding with joy over our boys.

By the way, Lady and Freckles are great mother's, gals after my own heart.

How blessed you are to have a husband who is training his boys and spends time with him. Also that his grandfather was a good role model for him. I have a wonderful husband who's dad was an alcoholic and was never there for him. While he spent time with our boys when they were little, he seemed to phase out as they grew, like he didn't know what to do. I have two wonderful boys but would wish for them to have had a stronger relationship with dad as they have grown older.

What little cuties! That is a good Sir-Prize for sure. :-)

Those boys will enjoy those horses for along time.

Have fun with all of them. Of course, you will ... I don't have to tell you.
