It's here! 2021 calls for a new driving hours thread. Here's to hoping for more driving and less mask wearing and physical distancing.

I'm starting us off with driving our team of Fjords. Doesn't count for mini hours but we're trying to work through some things with Ferb so we spent about 3 hours with the team today.

Happy New Year!!! Drive on!

Jan 1st: I ground drove Zorro for 20 minutes while baby Oliver galavanted all around us on the pasture track. We drove 1 mile.

Jan 2nd: We started on the pasture track so the baby could come with us. Then I put him away and ground drove Zorro out on the road. We drove for 60 minutes and went 3 miles.

A good start to the new year even though the wind has been HOWLING every day making it very cold to be out there 🥶

The final total for 2020 is on the "Driving me Buggy 2020" thread as well as links to all of the driving hours spreadsheets if you want to take a look at your individual totals for each quarter.

I apologize in advance for any mistakes.

I'll get the 2021 spreadsheet up and running ASAP! Happy driving!!!

Here's the link to the 2021 spreadsheet so far. I'll add each driver as you post your first hours for the year on this thread. Feel free to save the link and view it whenever you want to see your hours adding up :)

40 minutes driving Rocko today.

He is cantering counter clockwise nicely now but still goes on the wrong lead clockwise. He's figuring things out though and I'm happy with the way things are going.

It was beautiful today; much warmer and my little buddy came over and drove Annie so it was good for Rocko to just go on a nice easy hack and not be schooled.

Jan 7th: Ground drove Zorro for 3 miles - 60 minutes. It was a beautiful wintery day with the snow falling 🤗
Jan 8th: Drove Zorro in the sled for 3 miles - 60 minutes. It was a bright sun shiny day with not quite enough snow for the sled but I couldn't resist!
Jan 9th: Drove Zorro in the bike for 3 miles - 60 minutes. It started out super warm and sunny. It stayed sunny, not a single cloud in the sky, but as the sun went down it got super cold! By the time we got home I was frozen and had to go in the house and take a hot bath!

We had a lesson. Part of the lesson she had me halting him then backing and then going right into a trot because this sets him up to push off his hind end.
