The day started ominously – I took this photo when I was coming back in from feeding Haakon his breakfast. It did not bode well.
But brighten up, it did so I took myself and my camera out into the garden to see what was putting in appearance.
I felt encouraged. Monster arrived to “help” or show me around his realm. He is a very handsome lad. We decided he is even more beautiful in real life. He takes a bad photo. I can’t capture his character or expression which is strange as he is always communicating.
As it had turned into such a nice day, Daisy very kindly offered me Iacs while she rode Taktur and we went out for ride. We set off in the dry (see the dry road) and came home soaked, frozen and miserable. We had been sleeted on. I think my ears actually froze.
But it was fun to get out and Iacs was a gentleman while I was his passenger. He tacked across the road, managed to get in a few sneaky canters and it felt strange sort of seeing Haakon in front of me, but knowing it wasn’t. I am always like that when I ride Iacs. He is so similar to Haakon to look at and then very obviously isn’t.
So we got home, put the horses away with more food, changed and had a hot chocolate to warm up.
