    Now that I am rejuvenated, I will write it down.   Makes me tired to think about it again though!

    oct 28: 60 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
    nov 3: 40 minutes for Moony
    nov 3: 50 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy
    nov 4: 60 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy
    nov 6: 55 minutes of ground driving for Moony

    hopefully I'll drive this week and next weekend more!

    This license is necessary for the most competitions in our country, but actually it's not needed for driving on roads. But there's a discussion the license will be mandatory for EVERY driver who drives outside. Maybe in a few years it will be necessary.
    But for me, it was a great chance to learn more about driving. We drove in a city with much traffic, but big horses. I think I got much more practice in driving through heavy traffic and be more self-confident.

    @MajorClementine thanks for picking up the hours!

    I can add some more...
    nov 8: 40 minutes for Moony
    nov 9: 40 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
    nov 11: 360 minutes for Moony (Massai and Teddy were driven by a girl, but I think, we only pick up the hours that we drive ourselves)

    We had just enough snow to take the sled out this morning.
    25 minutes ground driving Cappy with the sled. He has his old inglorious job of helping with the manure tubs back.
    Then I got in for a quick 10 minute spin.

    YES, he does great! :D He's a rocket!!! We are doing about 4 miles in a half an hour, lots of fun for us... And the scary moments are less and less, he doesn't runaway anymore when he's frightened. The driving license course finally gave me so much more safety and self-confidence. It's amazing how this can help to calm down the horse!

    I drove on this week:
    nov 27: 20 minutes for Teddy
    nov 29: 40 minutes for Moony

    My grand daughter drove for an hour but I did not. I've been doing things with the horses, just not driving. The parade is tomorrow night but I don't know if I will go. May depend on if the wind is blowing.
