Bear with me!


This isn't a bear attacking Lil Mama- it's TLC in a bear jammie! It was clear but windy and cold today- but no matter- Lil Mama and I still had horses to feed, stalls to muck and chores to finish. So we wrapped TLC up in his warmest suit, put socks on his little hands so they wouldn't freeze, strapped him inside his pack and off they trudged! Dosen't he look happy? He is! He loves to be outside- and the weather doesn't matter. Good thing he's not too prissy!

LOVE seeing that! I used to do the same w/Mercy, put her in a sling and do chores anyway. She loved it too. So nice to see kids getting OUTSIDE, even if it is cold!

I'm with Mikey- both our guys would go with us for chores and barn calls. Kids being OUT is soooo important!!

TLC is a cute lil bugger for sure!!! And Lil Mamma also looks really happy. Great family there CC! ;)

The kids and I always went to do chores together. It builds good character to work together, even at that age!

Headline: "Cutest bear in the world attaches itself to the back of young mother!" The bear could end up being the world's best helper.

Can't beat Saddle Mtn Rider's comment! PERFECTO!
What a cutie! And my grandkids live outside as much as they can..all weather, very little clothing...and healthy as oxes!

No better way to raise 'em!
