Alvin Goes To School
Saddle Seat Wednesday
Last week, Alvin went to a local elementary school as the living demo for Pioneer Days. He was, naturally, a star.
He never swished his tail, nor stamped a hoof, nor did a thousand other normal horse things that would have endangered little toes and fingers. By mid-afternoon, he was over it. We all were. We saw 9 classes? 10? I’m not sure. I lost count. He began making dramatic air snaps at my hands and chewing on my belt, shirt, whatever he could reach. He wasn’t going to bite me, but a stinging nip was not out of the question. Yet, he remained an angel with the kids. It was as if he knew that I was a safe target for his fidgets.
