How to Make a Red Wagon Feel like a Saddle Horse

It is wet in GriggsDakota. We received 2 1/2 inches of rain from Friday afternoon through Monday morning. Field work is at a stand still. So I dug around in the archives. I have mentioned that we lived off the farm for many years. We were just an hour away, so our farm life continued. As you can see, we made do with what we had. Katie was younger than the Ag Analyst and her horse was very gentle.
What is a parent to do when you live in the city and your kids can't have a horse in the backyard? Cattleman Jim gave us an old broken saddle, we cleaned it up, added reins, mounted it over a five gallon pail, and strapped the works onto a red wagon.
And took Katie for a ride on the sidewalk. The show horse is named Queenie. The work horse is Farmer Fred. We are glad that we eventually found our way back to GriggsDakota.
