While messaging with Olivia, I realized I had a bit of a morning "off" in that I only had four horses to ride and not six. With some clever rearranging, it was possible to go for a trail ride with her!
I pulled up expecting to see Nilla or perhaps even Eugene, but INSTEAD I got to meet this very handsome mustang who is definitely green but was ultimately more saintly about the trail than my mare was!
Levi totally made me believe that if it weren't for the whole "you have to keep them for a year, no reselling them," thing, a mustang would be my next horse. He was reasonable about bridges, went over a funny log obstacle MUCH more placidly than my mare, and generally had a happy-but-dopey expression on for the whole ride. I liked him.
|mare would have preferred fewer photos, thank you very much|
Wouldn't have minded 'accidentally' putting him in my trailer but I imagine Olivia would be, I don't know, upset about that.
Kat was pretty stoked to be out and about doing something besides long walks and transitions.
She also fell a little bit in love with Levi and although anthropomorphic, I swear she was looking for him when we unloaded at home.
|Also very brave deer!|
