on the longlines...
Molly was very brave, in fact, and volunteered to go a way she hadn't been before, and in fact that I hadn't been before! then back along the top fenceline and down the hill from the other side - essentially a big circle with a small circle at the far end... and then on the way back to the stables i decided to not go straight back, but to go past into a field leading towards the track under the road... for two reasons, firstly i don't want her to assume that we always go straight back to the stables, and secondly because we hadn't been that way for a while.
it ended up taking longer than i thought as she started napping away from the gap to go under the bridge from way back, so i spent a long time trying to get her to go through by herself, and finished up leading her through - didn't want to leave with her not having gone under the road! which she has done before several times, but last time was last october ...
so overall successful
all fortified by 2 mugs of strong black coffee!.
