In which both of the horses learn to be ponies...and tow vehicles!
Hana has been getting a lot of work lately, so while she's a little bit tired
(and a little bit mellow),
I decided that it was a good time to teach the mares a skill that will be useful once we return to the Renegade camp.
"Wait. We're gonna learn something?"
Yup. It's time for these mares to learn to be the trailer...AND to be the tow truck!
I started by riding Hana and ponying Fiddle.
Fiddle was amazingly mellow about this whole process. When we walk, she likes to hang out in back, grabbing bites of grass as we go.
And check out the sky: it's full of BLUENESS!
It was time to trade horses, so I hopped up on Fiddle and we backtracked up the hill, and...
Hooray! I found the camera!
Hana wasn't as thrilled about being the caboose, but she figured it out pretty quickly, and better still: Fee figured out that I am in charge of her and Hana, no matter which horse I'm riding. Phew. That took a little bit of convincing, but she really did get it.
Back at the trailer:
"We learned stuff today, didn't we?"
"Yeah. I guess we did. That was pretty okay."
Yes. It was.
Life is good.
