Mike took the pictures while I worked with Gemma and Nimo. First, we had to hose Nimo's legs off so the weight of the mud wouldn't pull him down during the ride. Then, we had to scrub the mud off the rest of him and get him presentable for pictures. Finally, after what seemed like ages, he was ready. (I've been cleaning my house for the past several days and I admit that dirt removal in any form is vaguely repulsive at this point.)
Gemma got on first because she likes to ride from the barn to the arena (why walk when you can ride, is her motto).
|Nimo is only walking, but I like how it looks like they are zooming!|

Then, I got on too.
|Gemma insisted that we do some "jumping"|
|My husband decided to get creative with the camera:)|
|I love seeing how things have changed since then!|
