A Day at the Stables Part 1
Ok, I just have to say that I LOVE this week’s theme at Camp Doll Diaries [http://dolldiaries.com/horse-feeding-fun-for-you-and-your-dolls/]! It’s all about HORSES!!! If you know me really well, then you know that I LOVE horses and that they’re my favorite animal 😀
All of my “daughters” love horses, too, but three of them love them as much as me (which is A LOT!). When they heard what the theme was this week they were so thrilled!
All of the girls in Little Lilacs Cabin had just finished putting on their boots and were chatting away.
Addy- “Girls- May I have your attention, please?”
All of the excited faces turned to Cabin Leader, Addy.
Addy- “Thank you. Now, before we head off to the Stables we have some quick rules to go over. Rule #1: We want you all to have a “buddy”, so get into groups of two, please. Rule #2: When at the stables please be very calm and don’t be afraid. Horses can sense fear and if they do, it might make them a little jittery. Rule #3: Listen closely to what Cabin Leaders Saige and Felicity will be telling you. They will tell you all about the horses and how to care for them. Rule#4: Please control yourself. If one of you girls are anxious to pet the horse when it’s not yet time, please be patient. You will each get a chance to pet it. Is everything clear?”
Everyone- “Yes, Addy!”
Addy- “Good, then let’s head over to the Stables!”
After quite a while they reached the Stables. Saige was there to greet them along with Felicity.
Saige- “Hi girls! Welcome to the Stables! This is the sweet horse we’ll be looking at today. Her name is Penny and she is the perfect horse for any beginner rider. Please gather around and Felicity and I will tell you all you need to know.”
Saige and Felicity told them all about the tack such as- saddles, bridles, bits, horse shoes, and boots. They told them about the care supplies for horses such as all the different types of brushes, curry combs, fly spray, conditioner, and fly masks. They also told them how to treat a horse if they get hurt.
Saige- “And now I need a volunteer to groom Penny.”
Annika, who had never been around a horse before (although she loves them) offered excitedly!
Annika brushed through Penny’s mane until it was all nice and pretty. It was her dream come true to be around a horse 🙂
Felicity- “You’re doing very well, Annika!”
Saige- “She looks beautiful! Nice job!”
Annika- “Thank you!”
Felicity- “Why don’t you give her an apple for being such a good girl?”
Annika gasped- “Can I?”
Felicity- “Of course!”
Annika- “There you go, Penny. That’s a good girl.”
Saige- “Well, who’s ready to saddle up?”
And that is where we end Part 1!
So, how did you like it? Don’t you feel so happy for Annika? It kind of reminds me of myself 🙂
And in case you’re wondering you can see a couple of the things I made. I made some apples out of Model Magic Clay, I used Easter Grass for some hay, and the rest you haven’t seen- yet 😀
I hope you’re all having a great week!
Oh! and one more question- What have your dolls been doing at Camp?
