At the moment, all I am good for now is walking.
I am determined to keep walking for as long as I can and for as much as I can and if anyone wants to come along, then off we go!
Today’s walking buddies were BeAnne….
Lambie and ‘Ster (‘Bert is with his lady-friends – he appears occasionally and then returns to them)…..
And Haakon, my 24 year old Icelandic horse.
We all set off together but it was early stages.
Lambie and ‘Ster were quickly diverted by the charms of the hill sheep and vanished. They will probably come home tomorrow looking for their breakfast.
We left them to their friends and continued onwards.
On the home track no one needs a lead.
But once on the road, then everyone’s safety is paramount.
Haakon wanted occasional food breaks.
But mostly we all walked nicely together.
Haakon stopped to look at the locals.
And we had one moment when it all went a bit wrong.
But we trundled along as a happy little team.
On the way home, there was another rather determined snack stop.
Walking with Haakon is always easy. Since he was a youngster, when I led him, he has always gently touched my hand with his nose every so often just to tell me he is there. It is very sweet and good to know.
