Barneys Day Out!
Not the usual pair of lustrous Grey ears! No these belong to a rather smaller horse. Black and hairy! Its rather an unusual feeling, riding a smaller horse, at 14 hh`s and a bit! he is a tad small. But he makes up for that in stamina, fitness and strength! He`s a bold little fella, and although stubborn at times, will plod on for hours.
Today we headed for the forests, with strong winds forecast, and rain on the way, neither Lynne or myself wanted to be driving home wet through! The car park was almost empty when we arrived, the odd MTB-er`s! But that was about it, all the tracks in the forest had recently been resurfaced, mainly due to the recent visit of the Scottish National Car Rally. They do tear up the tracks!
Not the best of pictures this. I`ll blame Lynne! I was riding him “English”, its just not me. Still we did a cool 12 miles together!
Here he is back home, (butter wouldnt melt!)
