A Great Way to End the Year (Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010)
Zephyr and Hero came along, too, and had a blast. Hero probably ran twice as many miles as the horses did, running ahead, coming back to us, and running on ahead. Sometimes Zephyr got left pretty far behind, but we always caught up to her on the way back!
The nice deep snowdrifts that had blown into ditches and along fencelines were just what the doctor ordered to encourage Brandy to gait; even where there was no snow, the long clumpy grass did the same thing. It didn't take long at all for her to pick up a nice flat walk instead of step-pacing. You can tell by her damp shoulder and neck that she got a good workout! You can also tell how relaxed she is, standing there with her eyes closed!
