Moonhills is my favourite place name on the Forest; unlike Woodgreen it shows a little more imagination. Tracey and I took Sammy out for his 'Wednesday' walk, even though it's Tuesday.
|I can't work out if this is irony|
We took the opportunity to look at someone's big horsebox today. Sammy wasn't in the least bit perturbed even when the horse inside stuck his nose out of the window to whinny at him.
With the road closed we took advantage of the lack of traffic and walked down the centre of it.
We also had a good look at the work that the Highways Authority are doing. They are replacing the cattle grid entirely which will hopefully make it less noisy.
Sammy wasn't concerned about the noise that the pneumatic drill made.
Back home Sammy had some bridle practice. Yvonne is trying out a new contoured bit which hopefully Sammy will prefer, however, he expresses his concerns through throwing his head around. Using the hand between the ears approach can encourage a horse to hold his head still or even lower it.
