I try to ride Gandolf on most Monday mornings.
Valiosa gets to saunter around in his pasture for some time then. We’re both loving Mondays, in our own different ways.
She rewards mostly by rubbing the tail root on trees. Hanging up her fly mask from a branch. And pulling off a shoe if it’s muddy. Or, as you can see, tearing off bell boots.
This is why we love them (?).
