Friday, 27 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Nine Days Old
Ayla got her first horse today… A rocking horse, from her Aunty Let and Uncle Bill.
Aunty Let is Hubby’s mum’s sister and they’re from one of the most remote cattle stations in Australia.
So it was only fitting that Aunty Let would be carrying a rocking horse in her arms when she and Uncle Bill arrived at our house for a visit tonight.
It made me teary to see my little girl so happy on the back of a colourful wooden pony and I wondered (errr… hoped!) that Ayla will one day share my love of all things horsey.
For most of my life, horses have given me freedom, independence, confidence and unconditional love.
They’ve taught me about exploration, perseverance, patience, following my dreams and the kicks that cone from adrenaline, and its a passion I dearly hope to pass on to Baby Ayla when she’s older.
