Steele- "I don't like it when you go away"
Me- "I do miss you all when I'm gone but I can't always stay home. Now let's talk about your behaviour"
"What do you mean? I was an angel"
"really? What about you stealing Irish's food?"
"oh that. I was just pointing out his mistakes so there wasn't a bigger problem really. If I hadn't shown him the dangers of leaving the door open then who knows what could have happened. The food was just a bonus. You know- for my hard work"
"besides, it wasn't me who broke the stall door this time- it was Mr. Perfect Irish".
"you needn't look so smug you know"
"I have no idea what you're talking about. Now, about you abadoning
"Well it was a special trip with my daughter but it was also educational. We went to Natural History Museum. Do you know that horse's were integral to the early history of civilization"
"I am not surprised. After all, you couldn't do it all by yourselves."
"I found some interesting tack as well"
See, this is an early bit:
'yikes, that doesn't look comfortable"
'Okay but look at this bridle from Asia?"
"and here's a protective helmet that war horse's wore"
"What do you think of this saddle?"
"ok, how about this one?"
"oh you are fussy- this one is very decorative"
"okay okay. But you have to admit that these stirrups will look great in the show ring"
