Had a great experience at the store today as I watched a little boy "Rowan" tromp though our store today on his stick horse, sword in had and charging through the isles as mom finished her shopping.
Do you remember the stick horse? I know they were much simpler in our day, no fur and maybe a tad bit more imagination. But Rowan named his "Blacky" Because it was black and white and he held his sward high above his head, little blond head bobbing up and down with each gallop, I could imagine the drama that was playing in his head as he rode to save the day.
I too love my smart phone and love technology to some extent, however isn't great that kids can find the same imagination toys that we played with in the day, just as fun. A stick, a horse head and open space to play is all we need for an epic horse ride, sword drawn and nothing but the wind in our hair. Nothing to stop us except Mom saying it is time to come in, or in Rowan's case, Time to go. An adventure to be continued, on Rowans next visit as the traditional Horse Head riding stick is always in stock at your local family feed store.
