Horses that grow old

Horses that grow old

  We have a twenty eight year old pony that I was riding last autumn as
there was too much traffic on the road, so I was ableo school in the
paddock for a few weeks.  He had unloaded my daughter the week before, I
was very nervous.  I guess he was tired of working for a libing as he also
tried to unload me.  We eventually agreed on the pace,  tempo and length
of the ride, to his satisfaction.  I did enjoy the chance to work such an
ambitious horse.
  There is still too much ice for road work so we did an exercise routine
of walking on foot.  Not nearly so much fun.
