Lily and Norman
Jason and I were blessed to welcome two amazing new additions to our family this week. Lily and Norman made the trek from Northern Illinois early this week. Sometimes life seems to work itself out and the presence of Lily and Norman on our farm are a perfect example of this.
Lily checking out her new surroundings
I don’t think Norman knows where he is yet, he has yet to lift his head
Lily’s reaction to the goats
Even with a chicken standing under him Norman didn’t lift his head
Lily has her knees literally to her chin in both of these pictures. I like the expression of horse and rider in both pictures, calm determination.
I have managed to get on Norman’s nerves as his first day here I kept hugging him because I just couldn’t resist. Norman kept letting me know he didn’t care for all of this hugging by nipping at me and I finally got the message and have ceased with the hugs! Norman has certainly channeled the same spirit that Cuffie has as he never lifts his head from the grass during his multiple, short grazing periods each day. Again, Kate tells Norman’s story much more eloquently than I do in this blog post.
Even though he is just cantering over this little jump from a long spot he still has even knees while he takes care of his young rider.
Welcome to the family Lily and Norman!
