I’ve been itching to get out and drive horses. The weather has been amazing, you’d think it’s spring, not winter. My leg is strong enough. And I’ve got a bad case of cabin fever. I just need to do normal things, and this is something I really wanted to get back to.
So, it was a great weekend weather-wise, and I took Chewbacca out for the first drive of the year! We went for about 30 minutes, a nice casual walk with some trotting. We didn’t go far, but he was super. We did some roads and some trails. It was amazing that he just went right back to driving after 8 weeks off with no trouble.
There was a playground that has been recently built, and it wasn’t there the last time Chewie went out for a drive, so it was a new thing to look at. He thought about stopping, but just moved on when I asked and went by it with no trouble.
I did ground drive Luke, and he looks about ready to be hitched, too, so maybe next weekend. It’s still dark during the week once I get to the barn.
And….. dah dah dah…. I started driving the minis tandem!!! I’m thrilled about the great driving experiences I’ve had this weekend, and I hope this rings in the start to an amazing 2012.
The minis are driving AWESOME in tandem! They’re steering is really getting better and better.
It’s been a fun weekend, and all in all, I’ve logged 1 1/2 hours driving. Lol. All short drives.
Oh! And before I forget- Pictures (FINALLY!) of the completed trailer hitched to the truck!!!
