Hello Dear Humans! This week I have been working and also having a good time. First of all let me tell you about the work part. Assistant Lynsey gave Ma Leueen and me a lesson . Well….let me tell you,I had to work hard. I think Ma Leueen did too, but not as hard as me, of course. When Assistant Lynsey starts saying “Up! Up!Up!” I know what that means. I have get myself in gear to show off my best skills as a tip top dressage horse. Here is a short video.
I have to say that if Ma Leueen and I do not get it right we hear about it but when we do get it right Assistant Lynsey is quick to tell us.
So the day after that work Ma Leueen and I went out for a walk in the forest. Nice as there were no pesky flies to bother us. We went up and down the hills and onto some trails I had not been on before. To finish up we went round the forest loop. You remember I have talked about that on the blob before. We usually go for a gallop but when I asked Ma Leueen to take a video of that she said “No” . It seems that even with opposable thumbs, Humans cannot gallop and hold a phone at the same time. So, she told me we would do it at the walk. We usually start at the big grass field, that is at the top of the hill, behind the barn. Then we go on the cleared path down a bit of a hill. Next we turn the corner and if we are cantering Ma Leueen sits forward and lets me go. I gallop up the hill and back out onto the grass field. In this video you can see where I gallop even though I am just walking. The cleared path is nice; no rocks or tree roots. I love it.
I think you can see why I like that loop so much. Until next time Dear Humans I wish you forest trails and nice gallops!
