Buckin' Bronco

Our buckin' bronco is a pint-sized rocking horse.  Apparently, Cora found out that with carpet, you can get rocking horses to do a lot more.  She likes to ride hers through the living room and office.  It slides nicely across the carpet as she rocks and jumps at the same time. 

Last night, Geron and I were watching with amusement as she showed us her new trick, that is, getting the horse to rock her across the room.  At one point, she got a little carried away and jumped the horse right out from under her.  She flipped off the back and the horse went sailing over her head, landing down just shy of the dining table.  Geron was able to keep his composure and asked her if she was okay.  I, on the other hand, was shaking on the loveseat with laughter. 

She's going to have to take the rocking horse out to the corral and work on taming it.  It's still a little wild.
