Mindy, I hope you migraine is better. I have had them for years. No fun at all.
No they are not fun at all. I've also had them for years. It seems that I now have one at least once a week. Sigh.
Today we all walked and Zorro and Sky ground drove for 120 minutes. We went 4 miles but I'm so out of shape I slowed us down by needing to stop often when we were climbing the steep part of the trail. I'm sure my ponies wish I was the kind of person that could run a mile or two so they can trot. Sky would have liked to do that since she spent most of the first part of our drive jigging and dragging me all over the road
She is such a pain in the butt. Sometimes I wonder why I keep trying with her. I have to work VERY HARD to not allow her behavior to ruin my time out with them. I have spent 100's of hours doing ground work of all kinds with her. She was a wonderful driving horse for 8 years. I drove her for two years once I brought her home but I always wondered if she was trying to save us or kill us both. Sigh. She is a complete basket case and over reacts to literally everything that is happening when we are out. Mostly Zorro ignores her but today he was feeding off her behavior a bit. So then I would have her walk behind me and allow him to regain his brain. There was a lot of wrestling that was going on which made me more tired. Sometimes my ponies are stinkers
Edited to add photos! I forgot to put them on:
This was on our way home. Sky was finally calm and walking, but only because she was tired...
These two crack me up. Zorro was rubbing his head on Samson and then would just stand with his head resting, forehead against Samson's side. Zorro really likes him. LOL!
The wind was howling today. But it wasn't too cold. However I did choose to walk because I was afraid I would get cold if I was just sitting in a cart.
It was beautiful up there and worth the climb. Even though I wondered if I would die! LOL!
