Yesterday, Daisy rode Dreki. I was leading and Daisy was riding.
- “Thems is feets….. where do they come from, thems feets? Efstur said they would appear and they did!”
- (Who knows, Dreki, who knows!)
We stopped for they traditional family photo and then Daisy said “put the rope over his neck, walk alongside (just in case) and let’s see what happens.”
Nothing – zip, nada, diddly-squat. Dreki was a good boy and he walked around the school, staying on the track (mostly), listening to his rider and trying to learn this new language we were teaching him. We were all very pleased.
So, that’s the first solo flight achieved. Tick.
I love this photo. After the ride, while Daisy “did feet” (ground tied and picked them out), I was outside. Here is Dreki noticing Harry for the first time, who was in the process of sitting down outside the indoor school.
“OMG, he is so small and teensy. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like that before!”
And now, today, on my walk, I found Maggie had put Harry in a hole. It is so cold at the moment (that ruddy north wind never stops) so she wanted him to be warm.
So sweet. He looked like a plant!
On my home (45 minutes later), Maggie had sat down next to her little flower.
Funny little chap. He fits right in.
