Oh Truett…he reminds me so much of oldest brother that it’s like I’m watching Tyler grow up all over again. Truett loves horses, loves the outdoors and loves to ride. Sometimes he just pulls his little chair onto the front porch and sits and watches the horses outside. It’s the sweetest thing ever.
When the horses come close to the yard, he doesn’t care a lick whether or not he’s got pants on. He shoots outside just so he can get close enough to pet on them. If you listen closely, you can hear him whispering things to them too. I don’t know what exactly but most of the time it seems like a deep conversation by the way his hands move around.
He’s fun to watch and if you bother him during his convos with the horses, he’ll stomp all the way back and tell you to leave him alone and that he’s busy!
While Sparkplug doesn’t stay in the yard anymore, we do occasionally let him in so that Truett can pet on him, lead him around, and now check his “shoes”. He’s been watching my man shoe horses and pretends to shoe Sparkplug. If you look closely, you can see him lifting Sparkplug’s foot………
Days like this just make me smile. Absolutely precious to see how smart and independent he is.
