Today has been somewhat blustery! My ride with Cookster was rather interesting as he regressed back to trying to nap for home and we had to have a discussion about which way to go!
I thought Galahad would be spooking all over the place but in actual fact he was very relaxed and well behaved. There is a for sale sign on a field gate halfway up the hill and now Galahad knows it is there he is always prepared – he slows right down and stares very hard towards the gate so that as soon as it comes into view he is ready to spook. Today, however, it wasn’t there – it had blown off and was lying on the other side of the lane. Galahad kept looking for it on the gate though and it was only when the sign was right under his nose that he noticed it and had a mini spook the other way. It was hilarious.
Galahad has also been earning his keep this week – we needed to move the ponies into a new field and he took me round to check the fences and for poisonous plants and litter. The field runs along a road and passing motorists seem to think it’s okay to throw their rubbish over the hedge so we have to keep a close eye on it. At least it’s quite fun on a pony!
