The boy swimming had just reached the end of his fourth lap or so, and the camera caught the look on his face as he challenged himself to make it to the wall. His struggle paid off. He rested a few minutes, then went on to do four more laps.
It didn't help that I kept cracking jokes while Cody was working with the young colt to ride him for the first time. But, as we laughed away, Cody continued to lay over the saddle and flop around while the colt's expression never changed. It was a quiet, boring first ride.
The last photo is proof that we all experience the same thing differently. Most amazing of all is the one head that is so far above the crowd with the empty look. Things must look really different to him!
