Out and about again


First little hack out of the year yesterday, with Mac's wingman, Maxie. Lost nerve again last year after a good year the one before, but going to beat it and get out again. The main problems is the pigs in the field next to our path to the farm ride but yesterday the worst thing was a herd of terrifying Shetlands :( He was ok though, just stood and looked although he was primed for a fast escape if they came any closer :eeek:

Thyme loves the YOs Shetlands especially the babies. YO has 4 fields of them and we have to walk past to get to the jump field. The foals seem to like Thyme as they come running to her neighing as we pass and Thyme wants to play, they don't do it to others and I wonder if its because she has had a foal in the past. One of her stallions likes Thyme and she just ignores him

Fortunately no pigs

We have pigs along side the bridle path ,but they are in runs so Teddy can only hear and smell them.
This year pigs that do cause problems are the sows and piglets all running around next to our other path. Also the birds gather to eat the pig feed, then start to eat the newly sown corn, so we now have bird scarers to cope with!!

Well done:clap::clap: Always makes you feel so good to achieve a successful ride. Glad he was ok with the shetlands. Cara's thing used to be herds of cows, especially in the Spring when they just went out and were bouncing around and rushing to the fence, we could end up anywhere.:eeek:

IP is, like Glen, unfazed by most of life... except geese :eeek::eeek: as in a flock (or is it gaggle) in a field :eeek::eeek::eeek:

She grew up with a Shetland as mentor - enough said :cool:

Today as we rode along the field edge there was a man setting mole traps, well Teddy thought it was very very scary, it took him quite a long time to calm down . Back to his normal self once the man stood up.

Its amazing the scaryiness of a sudden human where they normally shouldn't be. We met three walkers in sort of camouflage gear yesterday just on the lane coming home, Cara just stopped dead and wobbled on both feet until I told her to stop being daft. Didn't help that they didn't speak or look at us at all:umm?: Its the fishermen we meet over by the river though who have these long schooling whips with them waving in the wind. They always look a bit odd when we ask if they can please put them down. I'm sure mole man must be just the same. Fortunately we don't have any pigs near us, but we did have someone from a yard that only does full livery, come to look round our yard as her place had put pigs in next to the menage :eeek:

That takes a certain kind of stupid! I hope she pointed out they'd need a good insurance policy to cover the accidents that are likely to happen :eeek:
