Here she comes with the horse float and by the look of things I am going somewhere. Cool! Although I am going to miss you Cosmo!!! My best friend.
You know I used to hate the horse float and one day Cathy and Kate taught me to over come my fear of it, and now I just really like it. Yes O.K. I suppose you have to put all that protection on my tail and legs. The humans do fuss . Off down the road to Christchurch we go. O.K. so this means I am off to Otahuna Horse Riding. Last time I came down here I had a great time with the ladies (I mean mares) and seeing the new trails. Cant wait to tell Cosmo about this.
Well I am meeting my rider, Elanor. Elanor has come all the way from Singapore for a week just to be with me. I gather I am special!! Kate and Abi are teaching Elanor how to talk my language, and she had better get it right. I am an old Grand Dad and I dont like to be insulted with pulling and pushing or I will just pull and push back. Ask me kindly and I give kindly. There she got it. Thank you Kate and Abi just what I needed. We should go now. Good the humans have got it. I just love that.
Off we go up the hill to see the views from on top. This is the best bit for me because I get to follow Peggy, and some of my other old friends like Patch and Angus. Hello everyone. You are looking well, especially you Peggy!!
We go out every day for seven days!! Boy I am getting pretty tired, but Elanor is just so cool. She is getting really good with me, and I am so pleased that Peggy is in the same group as me because I think I have a thing for her now. We even went Over the Top to Governors Bay and back, and stayed in our very own paddock by the sea. Smell that sea air. I was the best wee horse for Elanor. Just so pleased to be seeing new places and being so safe and reliable for her. I don't like worrying the children. They are relying on me to take them on these rides safely, and that I am good at. I am the best Grand Dad anyone could hope for.
At last Kate has the float out again. Good Bye Peggy and Elanor. I will see you again next time and please tell those riders in Singapore how to talk to the horses.
Here we are back in Mt Lyford. Cosmo!!! Have I got things to tell you!!
