in the spirit of "yes"

Ha! my previous post you probably thought i was a disgruntled misery, but guess what?  Tonite I said Yes to something I am not comfortable with.  I took my beloved horse Ben (see below) brushed off his snowy back and in the depths of darkness the horse was saddled and Ben and I and Brian and Ziggy walked down the dark spooky lane out towards the road to the coulees.  Brian was ahead of me quite a ways and said, hey dearest are you there?  I said yes I am but my comfort level in the dark is just a little less than yours?  Why are you riding in the ditch Brian?  Because the horses get a littled spooked with the patches of dirt on the snowy road....so let Ben go in the ditch and we will ride on the fields?   (sigh) okay but remember I didn't put on long underwear so I will get cold soon! Well then, said my Mantracker we will turn around when your legs get cold.  So we walked along and I even did a bit of a trot to catch up to Mantracker. 

Ben, Ben, Ben you are such a good horse and of course when I turned around to go back home the pace picked up and Ben was as happy as a horse (hee). 

oh yes, I said yes and it was quite adventuresome and horses are really quite comfortable in the dark.

just sharing

Hey Donna! The 'comment' spot on your above post seems to have gone missing! Curious! But just wanted to say - have a most glorious week off next week. Have fun baking cookies and going on your ride Sunday. Warm Holiday Season Thoughts to you!

videos on horse

I always like to get a shot or two when horses are around. I thought the trees turning colour would turn out on this video Nada. ...
