Alex's First Horsey Ride

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 13 January 2012 in People & Portrait.

Alexander takes his first ride on the small rocking horse I made for his dad all those years ago. I finally got my iPhone 4s a while back. This shot is from that amazing device. He may seem a bit apprehensive. Wait till tomorrow.

what a precious and sweet moment ... but he does look a bit unsure of himself, horseback!
(great that the "old" horse is still "alive" ...)
