|Saddle pony extraordinaire!|
There I was having a lovely chomp on some haylage. Dragon had been out for a ride and had been undressed. FH was carrying her mule saddle through the yard when shock horror The Mini's wardrobe had malfunctioned and required adjustment. Slight problem! It was raining and there was no where dry and safe to place Dragon's saddle in a hurry.
Enter my handsomeness! FH took one look at me and decided that I being the bombproof, 'happy to do anything' chap of the gang wouldn't mind assisting. She eyed up my back and thought yes that will be ok... FH regularly puts brushes, gloves and other such items on my back for safe keeping when she is busy although I've never worn a saddle before, FH didn't think I'd mind though. Well Muleteers I was sooooo proud! I had a good snuffle of the saddle, checked it was my colour and then 'Kept Calm and Carried On' in true Roller Polar fashion :-) Don't worry muleteers because this is a treeless saddle it doesn't weigh much at all so I felt my sturdy little legs could carry it. The only problem was that the saddle was a little on the long side, I wonder if FH will buy one in miniature for me?
FH was so delighted with me she stopped her unscheduled adjustment of The Mini's wardrobe and marvelled at my handsomeness, why ever had she not thought of this before? I could see her mind ticking.... hmmm one day perhaps a small person may like to sit on me too? I can dream!
Anyway I didn't want to get carried away with my new found career so went back to doing what I do best.... eating! This saddle pony is hungry after all that work!
