"April" and "May" in their front row seats
keeping close watch on Royal.
Getting those little girls to stay on the side out of the way was an accomplishment. They are Royal's pals and they see no reason why they cannot wander around underneath him while he is being shod. That is where they are when he's eating.
They also follow him around the turnouts, even the one at the top of the hill. Now that is quite a hike considering they are only 6 months old and the world is still a big adventure for them.
Royal is so great around them ... he'll walk the long way around to avoid getting in their way.
Interesting friendship they have.
