I mentioned last week that the ponies had arrived home. I did not say that we had an exciting time when they got here. They travelled beautifully but when we unloaded them I was given a strict lesson in the importance of wearing gloves.
Obviously, I know gloves are important but there are always times when we let the rules slide a bit. This was one of those times. Sadly, Cookster decided that it was the perfect time to charge out of the trailer, barging me out of the way. I couldn’t hold him and was given a lovely rope burn for trying.
My instructor couldn’t hold Galahad either and they both took advantage of their freedom – there was a lot of yummy grass! Luckily we had been sensible enough to make sure they couldn’t get onto the road so they were perfectly safe. I will definitely be wearing gloves next time though!
