Gallop Pole

As a christmas present, Nicole had purchased toy horse ‘sticks’; the kind that have the horse head on one end and a long pole that they straddle and run with. A few days after christmas, we brought them out, explaining briefly how she had died but had wanted them to have these. They didn’t seem to quite ‘connect’ with the fact that she’s gone until the next day, but they were elated with the gifts. They’re quite nice, have detailed heads, and when squeezing either ear, you get a whinny or a galloping sound.

In this video, you’ll see an almost pavlovian response of urgency as my son triggers the gallop sound and realizes a moment later that… it’s time to move!
