Recently there were some roadworks not far from our house. In fact, the end of our lane was opposite the 200 yard warning sign for the traffic lights. Of course, to the ponies it was a Very Scary Object.
They were reluctant to go past it but once Galahad had decided it was safe he typically wanted to go over for a better look. Normally that would be fine but the road is all bends and cars tend to drive rather fast. We had to satisfy ourselves with a good stare from a distance.
The rest of our ride was very uneventful – although the ponies were surprised to see the sign still there when we came back. We are still enjoying some lovely spring weather and our hacks are consequently very peaceful and rather wonderful.
