It has been an interesting weekend. My human rode both days. She was completely covered by a bulky garment with things over her ears. She looked rather like a cow that had gone bipedal. It was chilly and I felt the urge to throw out my heels several times, but being the master of a gentle human I resisted. We trotted long easy stretches and had a wonderful canter through the forests. The trees seem so much more intense without their covering of leaves, less edible too. There was a light snow on the ground and it tickled my belly. My human had carrots for me after the ride. I take such pleasure on owning a well-trained individual. More later.
