Two years ago Papillon got to sit on Aunt J's horse. This year, Papillon was very excited to meet Starbuck again. But it was definitely a love-fear, relationship. She wanted to see Starbuck all the time, but didn't want to get too close. She wanted to give him treats from her hand, but didn't want his lips to touch her. She is, as ever, our cautious child.
She loved it when Starbuck ran along the fence. She tried to keep up but he quickly passed her and she would call after him delightedly "come back, come back!"
Hibou is significantly less cautious than her sister and thought that horse-lips eating her fingers was super cool.
Thanks, Aunt J, for letting us love on your horse during out visit!
