perfect day











Yesterday was a perfect day, warm (about 25°) and sunny but with that breeze again. So, in my quest to 'chill' Moralejo when away from the school or yard , we tootled off down our track to the most distant field (usually not grazed just left for hay but with the drought it's come in handy). The 'pics don't show it so well but it's an enormously steep hill and coming back up I could really feel his quarters working and I'm sure it's good exercise for him. To lighten the mood we stopped for fallen apples and then took five under the trees at the bottom of the steepest part. Maybe one day he'll 'get' that it's fun, lol.

Lovely pics Trudi, he looks pretty chilled out. I wish I could get Anky to chill when out on her own!

Just beautiful! I wish we had more hills around here to work with - very few and they're not very big.

Thanks all. Di he isn't very chilled but we're persevering. Yes I think France is beautiful Jane but so is the UK, I'm a Warwickshire girl and the countryside I grew up with was lovely.

Yes, it really looks like a perfect day!
Love the pictures. It is so nice to be able to accompany you, sitting by the PC.
With some apples and five min in the shade, I am sure Moo will start to enjoy the rides!
