|walking to the get Carmen I spied this 4-leaf Clover.|
I decided it was a sign
This weekend also marked the start of deer hunting season. Which means that a little extra caution is required. Last March I found this orange fly veil in a sales bin and I snatched it up. When we were tacking up I put it on Carmen and she immediately shook it off.
Carmen: I hate this colour on me. It doesn't go with my eyes
Me: It's for your safety. Besides, it looks lovely.
Carmen: It's just so not-cool.
|I hate this bonnet. And you.|

If it wasn't that it meant that winter was just around the corner I would really love it.
Sunday I arranged to go to Coveside and ride with a new riding buddy. Nancy was not available but this person was. Carmen was clearly stressed about getting on the trailer but when we arrived she was just 'oh, it's here. Okay then'. As we tacked up we chatted about our horses. She told me that her mare was pretty good on the trail.
Carmen is good too on the trails. I will tell you know that if you run we're probably going with you.
When I walked out with Carmen to mount the amorous donkey came up to say hi.
Well hello there little lady. How you doin'? I didn't see the look Carmen gave him but he veered off pretty quickly. Mare glare. It's real folks.
I have to say that the two mares were great together. They walked at similar pace. They were pretty chill with one another too. It was a lovely ride in the woods.
As we walked along Carmen dropped her nose to check out a stump that was recently cut. I let her reach down to it when she suddenly popped her nose up. I laughed. I totally saw that- it jumped at you!' She sniffed and walked on. After that she was rock steady. Even when we encountered Dianne walking her dogs and an ATV.
|I could do this all day|
