I took advantage of the cheaper prices for rugs in France and brought home two medium weights for Theoden and Petra. These two are only clipped and rugged for my own convenience during the winter months so that I don't have to spend half a day getting them clean and dry enough to ride. Otherwise I don't think they would need them at all. Why they make rugs in any colour but 'mud' I really don't know.
|It fits! Not needed quite yet but they come with a well fitting hood.|
|Gris et saumon! Petra is thrilled to be allowed to wear pink!|
|Horse-box party. There's four of us in here.|
|Now leading beautifully, matching me stride for stride.|
When it came to the right hand side, he wasn't sure that was a good idea either and blocked me with his head. I've found that in these situations it helps to just 'pop next door' into the right hand vision and then back again to prove that you have no intention to harm them. This worked like magic and Lenki then allowed me into his right hand side, accepted the feather duster all over and indeed engaged with it all the way. When I picked up the plastic bags on a stick he clearly felt this was all old hat by now and accepted it immediately.
