After getting nibbled by Cody, I tacked my brumby up and headed out.

Right across the road from this Blueberry Pasture is the Winter Pasture where a small herd of Bill's horses are. Naturally, we had to visit them.

We started out on the New Trail and then decided to go to Carrot Bridge and back.
Lilly was moving sooooo slowly that it felt like it was taking hours to get to Carrot Bridge. Click out this video to get a feel for how it was going: Just click here.
Is she ever slow! Sometimes I have to get out the crop and give her a little pop. Over an hour later, we made it to Carrot Bridge: celebratory video seen here.
The truth is that we can't even walk across Carrot Bridge because a horse's hoof will probably go right through it. So we go into the creek. But because of this big dumb log, getting into the water is harder than it should be. This is all my own opinion of course. In any case, I am always trying to saw this log out of existence.
And I fail at it because my saw is too small. So I kick at the log a few times. In the end, I get on my brumby and we go around it. Lost the battle but not the war as they say. I will be back! One day, that log will LOSE!
As we neared the very end of our journey, we came across Bill and Cody just coming up the hill. When Lilly first saw them, she clearly was not expecting it because she spun around and took off running in the other direction! So much for being afraid with all four feet on the ground. What a fright! As we were galloping away, I thought I was going to fall for sure. But get this: I was able to do a one rein stop! (Which I probably could not have managed in an open field, one of the many reasons why I love being in the woods). In any event, Bill had his GoPro on and got some of it on film!
If you want to see it, just click here! You can just see Lilly's white fur in the video.
After all that, it was time to get Lilly brushed and fed and ready for bed.
Until next time, dear blogging friends!
