I called up my neigh-bours My Heroine (aka Breeze) and The Sensible One (aka Chance) and asked if they fancied going out for a girlie day out. Of course we decided we better take some humans as they come in useful for things like opening gates and directing traffic...only thing is we have to carry them!
So along came my friends and we decided it was time for a splash in the river, you may remember that my friend Breeze and I have been working on our splashing skills in case we ever need to earn hay money. Breeze is an expert at the river splash with her front feet...
Here she is showing off (in a rather abstract way... appalling camera work FH) her skills.
Well anything Breeze can do I'm gonna give it a go too! I eyed up the water, it was a little chilly around my mulificent feet but looked ready for some action.
I got on in there and splished and splashed and paddled to my heart's content :-)
After rather a long time of hilarity and some very soaked humans we decided that it might be time to stop playing in the river, my hooves were starting to feet like wet sponges! So off we went waving ears at everyone we passed.
Eventually it was time to leave my neigh-bours and head off on my own. FH had grown stiff and decided it would be a good opportunity to hop off and give me a break. She really doesn't realise how tough I am does she?
I had a little snuffle in the drain to see how much water there was, for once it was only a trickle. No raging torrents here at the moment, mmm now I think I'll just test the hedgerow too... yum!
Then back in the saddle and FH told me to take her home to the ranch.... hmmm I think she means petite English country cottage? We passed under my favourite railway bridge, no trains to spot today which is always a disappointment.....
Nearly home I was struck by a funny noise coming from over the hedge, a high pitched bleat.
Whatever could it be?
Oh it's that time of year again where the lambs are springing around and calling for their Mums! They are so cute and bouncy, FH and I had a lovely time watching them enjoy themselves!
Alas all good things must come to an end, a couple hours, gallons of river water, a few bouncy lambs and some good miles later I was ready for a roll and of course a bite to eat. Ready to do it all over again the next day.
Til next time Muleteers, happy riding!
