A visit to the neighborhood horses

A visit to the neighborhood horses

WYOMING - We introduced our son Matthew to the two horses on 56th Street Wednesday night.

The two light brown horses live in a corral on 56th Street near Ivanrest, right across from Maple Hill Golf Course.

Both horses came right over to the fence when we crossed over from the trail along 56th and seemed friendly, but we decided not to stick our hands in to pet them.  We didn't have any treats for them either.

The owner didn't come out, so we don't know the horses' names or even if they want people coming up to them, but they are at least pretty to look at...and pretty interesting for a 13-month old.
