|Between Khari's ears~|
So... I let her do what she wanted. Her walk, which can be fast, but is most often slow - still was. She lifted into a nice trot all on her own & it was NICE! She asked to canter & we did that & it was FUN! Once out on the power lines, out of the cold shade of the forest & into the warm sun, I let her graze & took in the rays. The trip back was great too! Another set of trot & canter. She started snorting & looking when we were coming up the trail with the ecology blocks. I took Dean's advice & just let her stop, look & snort. Once that was over with - I gave her a pat & we moved on. All very low key. On the way back I stopped to cut down a lot of small Alders, that by Summer would have completely blocked our trail. I cut - then went on to attack the blackberry. Khari helped & at one point - she almost had me lassoed with a long piece she was determined to eat!
