Our daughter came again and brought her two little boys to cheer me up and they did (how could those sweet little faces not make my heart melt?)
They got to ride GW with 'Yampa'. And they got to watch him treat a sick calf out in pasture because the only place you can stand to ride is amoung the cattle and of course Grampa would see a big charolais calf with foot rot.
These are two of the nicest little boys I've ever seen and that's not just the Granny in me talking. Our daughter is a stay at home mom and she is a good one (buttons popping again). I really admire her husband for how hard he works so that she can do that, in this age of 2 income families.
GW is mostly retired now and this is his most important job. What a great old horse! He's worked on a pasture all his life, long before he came to live with us, and deserves a couple of nice kids to love him. I think those smiles tell it all.
It was a good day after a bad night.
