Merlin is very well acquainted with small humans, kisses on his nose were no problem.
Wasn't quite the hug fest Pippin received, as Pippin made sure he had Lincoln's attention as well...
And with the rain we were limited to the barn area, so no running about either.
Lincoln did his best to attempt to convince me that "his" horsies should come in the house. Keep in mind he just turned three!
He really works it, law school in his future???
