Here is a video of her success! She is working with him "at liberty" which means he is not required to follow her, he has no tack on, and she has no rope or lead on him at all. The only reason he is with her is because he wants to be.
Liberty. Its a beautiful thing!

Considering we have not been home from Hawaii very long, we have sure been busy! We were treated to a fantastic stretch of warm and sunny weather, and nobody lets that go by without lots of FUN and FAMILY.
The girls talked us into a sleepover in a holy old tent in the backyard. I thought the mosquitos might carry them away overnight, but in the morning, lo and behold they were still here. (I didn't sleep much, a mama worries!)
Somebody has got to go! Any volunteers?
That's my girl! Go Chena!
Heading out to sea.....
Dandelion is wondering who's steering and where are we going?
"Okay, anybody who is not a dog just sit down, shut up, paddle the boat, and leave the decisions to me!"
Everyone ate hot dogs, watermelon, chips, dips, baked beans, and ended with S'mores in the fire pit. Yum.
The girl cousins asked me to make the boys leave them alone so they could "hang out and talk" sitting under the hammock. They look cozy, huh?
Lots of FUN. I was almost glad when it clouded up today and I got some vacuuming done. Michael had a buddy drive down from Anchorage, and the two of them flew out for a few days of fishing and guy time.
See you at the next picnic! You bring the ants.

I can only share pictures, but hopefully you will see some of the magic of which I speak, through my lens. Its the most beautiful place you can imagine.
Check it! This is me, holding a sea horse in my HAND!!!! Unreal. The feeling was pure soft magic. She curled her little tail around my finger and cocked her head from side to side to look up at me. I fell in love with the feeling of a sea horse friendship at the tip of my fingers. We went to a sea horse garden, and I think it was one of our favorite things on the trip.
