Her Very Own Black Stallion

I think I have done too much recently and I have been struck down with a life-threatening lurgy (ok, a cold, but still I feel grotty).

Today, I am giving my horses and ponies a day-off from me.  They deserve it.  Haakon has worked very hard recently.

But Daisy rode Taktur as per Bjørn’s instructions and training.

So proud ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ sniff ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤.  Daisy rides beautifully and it is lovely to watch them work together.  Taktur is Daisy’s much wanted black stallion that she has dreamt of since she first read “The Black Stallion” books. (IndyPingPong, bless him, didn’t seem to fit that role).

She did very well.  I just sat in the middle with the dogs and took a few photos for her to look at afterwards.



Sorry this is short but I am feeling all bunged up and sorry for myself.  It is difficult juggling pain-killers with cold remedies and I can’t decide which is a more deserving cause.

If I cough, my back hurts.  If I sniff, my head hurts.  If I blow my nose, everything hurts.

Off to bed with my 24/7 nursing staff, I think.

    I find it really interesting how both Icelandic and Paso have their heads up and forward in a tölt (corto/largo).
    Same stance, similar gait. (well, same 4-beat)
    I really must get on an Icelandic some time. 🙂
    Great pictures!
