Road hack Feb 8, 2018

February 8, 2018

Two days ago I went out on a road hack and Simon was in one of those afraid of everything moods. So after two miles of two fists full of mane I turned around and we power trotted back.

Today we gave it another go. He was still a bit tense. He decided he is afraid of cows now, and the cows did now help by stampeding and mooing. And one particular older lady filling her bird feeder was about the end of him. He could just see her over a hill, and we spent a few minutes discussing that he would go forward. After that he got a bit more courage and we were able to move on some.

I will give it to him, the first two miles of the ride are through a much more closed in section of road with a lot more to look at. It’s a very tranquil two miles and I wish I were able to snap a few shots, but again I was riding with two fists full of mane with no hands free to snap photos.

After we got into the more open he relaxed more and we were able to move out more which also burned off some of his nervousness. So I did get two quick shots of our view. And also a quick shot of this giant pencil in someone’s yard. I love that pencil.

It’s a nice little loop, the only car was right by my house, and I am eager to be able to put a bit more leg into it as Simon settles down a bit more.

  1. Stunning. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the pencil, but beautiful just the same.
